Dental Cleaning Reviews
"I have been going to Dr. Dando for my entire life. He always asks me about recent trips and how I have been. He knows that my family loves Disney so that is a very popular topic of conversation. As far as the actual treatment received he is always fantastic! For a cleaning, you can tell that he is very knowledgeable and for a filling, he has techniques that make you feel no pain and you are out of there in no time! He is a very kind and considerate person. The staff is also amazing every time you have to talk to them whether it be on the phone or in the chair! Everyone is very understanding if you have certain problems or need to reschedule appointments. They never make you feel bad either. This is the best place ever!"- K.G. / Google / Oct 10, 2021
"If you’re looking for an honest family dentist in Hamburg, look no further! My family and I have been going to Dr Dando for a few years and we love it there! He never suggests unnecessary treatments which is something I’ve experienced with other dentists. Dr Dando, the hygienists, and the office staff are very friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Marika is usually our hygienist and she is awesome…sociable and gentle with both adults and children. I have had two other hygienists clean my mouth and they’re just as wonderful! They have newer tools that make cleanings painless, even with sensitive teeth. You won’t be disappointed!"- M.K. / Google / Jan 31, 2022

"I had an appointment with dental hygienist Katie, and she did a great job!! She is very personable and helped to make me comfortable and relaxed while there for my cleaning. My exam was done by Dr. Hoysock. She was professional, and thorough, and I would highly recommend her for dental care."- D.S. / Google / Oct 13, 2022
"I have to say anyone who has anxiety with going to the dentist, this is the place to go. My cleaning was absolutely amazing and I was told step by step what was going on. Liz totally rocked!! Today I had to get a cavity filled and getting a needle in my mouth didn’t sit easy with me. Dr. Dando was amazing and I didn’t even feel the needle!! Definitely coming back for more cleanings and hopefully no more fillings but I know they will take care of me if I do."- F.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2023
who is a good candidate for a teeth cleaning?
It is advised by the American Dental Association to have your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year. When it comes to babies, they can benefit from having a dental exam before their first birthday. However, you can talk to our team in Hamburg, PA to help you decide when your child is ready to have their first dental cleaning. In general, a professional cleaning can prevent cavities since plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay, is removed. A cleaning will also address tartar and stains on the enamel. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, boost your health, and save money in the long run, schedule a cleaning for yourself and every member of your family at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
What happens during a dental cleaning?
When a teeth cleaning service starts at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, plaque and tartar are removed that have been built up in your mouth. Professional dental instruments will remove anything without harming your teeth or gums. An ultrasonic device addresses bigger chunks of tartar with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, handheld instruments, like a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller pieces. Each tooth needs to be individually scaled to get all the tartar. Once the teeth have been cleaned, the enamel will be polished to remove stains and strengthen the teeth. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment can be performed after the cleaning. Contact us in Hamburg, PA to learn more.
