We are always welcoming new patients into our office, and many of those patients are actually referred from other patients, family, and friends. Although most patients are referred from other general dentists, it is not the only way to become part of our practice. It does not really matter how patients find us, whether it is through the web, whether it is through other families, through friends. Right now, the current prevalence of periodontal disease in the United States is approximately 50 percent. Contrary to popular belief, young children and young adolescents, they can also have periodontal disease. It does not just affect adults. Because of the high prevalence of periodontal disease, as well as the fact that it does affect young children, it is a good idea to have the entire family come to our office and have an examination and eventually a consultation.
