Dental Cleaning Reviews
"As a medical professional I tend to be hypercritical of those serving in the profession. Unfortunately, I'm often disappointed by prices, information, and quality of work. I'm 62 years old and decided it was time to overhaul my smile. It needs to last for the rest of my life. I searched across the Las Vegas valley looking for a cosmetic dentist to do the work, and after visiting four other offices for evaluations and pricing, I found Dr. Tozzi. I was greatly impressed by her manner; she sat me down and took great care to explain my options and prices. She did a complete examination, she even did the cleaning of my teeth herself. She did not give the task to a techinician, and that impressed me. She told me she liked doing that work herself because it gave her opportunity to fully evaluate her patients teeth. The final result was stellar, the price was affordable and the outcome was exactly as she said it would be. I have a new smile and for the first time in my life, I enjoy showing it off. I highly recommend this concierge dentist, and I feel confident your experience will rival mine."- D.M. / Yelp / Jan 02, 2016
"Dr. Tozzi and her staff are great. The office is clean, easy to get to, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. Cassie did a great job with my cleaning and explained what she was doing the whole time. Dr. Tozzi is always pleasant and never makes you feel rushed. Overall a positive experience from scheduling to cleaning."- L.K. / Yelp / Jul 31, 2018
"I can't remember a time I actually looked forward to seeing my dentist. When I was younger I had a horse back riding accident and have two teeth that I'm not really excited to show off. I hadn't had a cleaning in years and honestly felt scared to see a dentist. That all changed this week! Dr. Tozzi started with a consult and asked what I wanted to change, gave me her input and then I was given a treatment plan on paper. Then came the xrays and pictures. The cleaning was great, I felt taken care of and everyone was genuinely concerned about my level of comfort! I opted for the zoom whitening same day, i got a little sensitive so I only did 2 rounds but the results were instant! Then came the part everyone hasn't noticed, a little lip augmentation! I wanted to go natural and subtle and she nailed it! I'm going back for braces soon and a full smile makeover but the start was definitely exciting, pain-free and fun! If you haven't found someone to take care of you and your teeth, go see Dr. Tozzi and her staff asap!"- J.D. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2017
"Dr Tozzi and her staff are very professional and accommodating. I had a cleaning and X-rays first visit and have never been so comfortable during all those X-rays. Second visit was two crowns, a 2 hour appointment but once again very little discomfort. Highly recommend her for all your dental needs. Also had voluma in my cheeks and Botox in my forehead. When I came in for a follow up dental appointment she looked at my cosmetic procedures and felt I needed just a little more Botox, her attention to details is incredible!"- J.G. / Yelp / Jun 20, 2019

Who should receive a dental cleaning?
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends that patients have professional dental cleanings twice a year. Children should have their first visit to the dentist before they turn one and after that, Dr. Tozzi can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning can prevent cavities, remove tartar, and address unwanted stains. If you would like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, boost your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a dental cleaning at Michaela Tozzi, DMD.
What To Expect at your visit
A comprehensive dental cleaning will start by addressing the plaque and tartar deposits on your enamel, which is hard to treat on your own with daily brushing and flossing alone. Professional equipment is used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. To begin, a device with ultrasonic technology loosens large areas of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a fine handheld instrument, like a scaler or curette, will be used to remove smaller pieces. Every tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. After the teeth have been scaled, the enamel will be carefully polished to strengthen its surface and remove stains. If requested or needed, a fluoride treatment can be performed after your cleaning to provide extra protection.
keeping up your oral care
Dr. Tozzi may suggest cleanings more often for some patients than others if gingivitis or advanced gum disease is a concern. Some individuals are more prone to these conditions because of genetics, diabetes, or certain medications. Throughout your appointment, Dr. Tozzi or a member of our team can help you develop a good home oral care routine by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will focus on your needs. These can not only help boost your overall oral health but can save you money in the long run by decreasing the number of times you visit the dentist each year.
A dental cleaning is considered a preventive treatment so it is usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will talk to your provider to confirm your benefits and determine your out-of-pocket cost. If you do not have insurance, we can discuss all the different payments we accept, including flexible financing and Smile Advantage.
