When you need dentistry in Midtown, NYC, finding a dentist who offers a wide range of treatments is essential. Our busy patients appreciate Dr. Helma Philips’ experience and expertise in all areas of general dentistry. We welcome many busy professionals, and staying on time with each appointment is part of the patient-centered dentistry she provides here at Advent Dental.

Prevention Is Key for Optimum Oral Health

Healthy smiles require a partnership between you and your dentist. Exceptional at-home hygiene practices including brushing and flossing, wearing a nightguard or sports guard to protect teeth, and maintaining regular dental exams and cleanings in your Midtown dental office supports optimal oral health and overall wellness.

Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings in NYC

With a busy lifestyle, it can be tempting to put off routine dentistry. At Advent Dental, we are committed to staying on time in our schedule and to providing thorough, yet efficient, dental appointments so you don’t have to skip essential dental exams and cleanings, which can lead to dental emergencies, costly, complex conditions, and even tooth loss.

Our comprehensive oral evaluations include:

  • A tooth-by-tooth exam
  • Periodontal (gum) evaluation
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Digital x-rays (when needed)
  • Consultation and medical history update

Each of our dental cleanings is custom-tailored based on our patients’ needs. Typically, twice-yearly visits work well for younger and healthy patients, while those with periodontal disease may require three to four specialized dental cleanings per year. Dr. Philips and our hygienist will discuss what will work best to support your oral health and answer any questions you may have.

General Dentistry for Lifelong Healthy Smiles

Even with good preventive care, most adults will need restorative dentistry at some point during their lives. General dentistry covers the scope of services designed to help patients maintain dental function and the appearance of their smiles.

  • Dental implants

With Helma Philips, DDS, you can expect to have the dentistry you need in a single location with a dentist you know and trust. In the rare instance that a referral becomes necessary, Dr. Philips will recommend someone who shares her same philosophy of exceptional, comprehensive dentistry.
