6 Questions to Ask When Searching for a New Dental Home

Recently, a long-time patient of mine here at Anthem Dentistry mentioned that she and her family were going to be moving to Mesa in a few weeks.

Your Child’s First Dental Appointment

Your little one is growing up before your eyes and hitting new milestones every day. In fact, it may be time for their first dental checkup before you know it!
