Regular Checkups in
At the office of Ellenton Family Dental, we suggest all of our patients follow the American Dental Association’s recommendation of visiting a dental office at least two times a year for a regular checkup. These visits allow us to examine your mouth for any oral health issues, and if anything is discovered, we can promptly provide the most effective treatment.
Your gentle, carefully performed dental checkup begins with a thorough, full dental examination. We carefully assess your teeth, gums, inner cheek lining, throat and lips to check for any abnormalities and problems such as cavities, bite issues, tartar buildup, gum problems, swelling or abscesses. For issues that may go unnoticed by the naked eye, we make use of digital X-rays which help capture digital images of your oral structures and allow us to check for any issues immediately. We also perform a screening for oral cancer to rule out the possibility of this dangerous disease.
A regular dental checkup also includes a professional cleaning of the teeth and mouth. Our skilled hygienists make use of special dental instruments to clean around and between your teeth and at the gum line, eliminating plaque, and giving you a fresh, clean mouth and fresh breath.

Dr. Whaley is soft-spoken and always as gentle as possible. He is thorough and very honest and he does excellent work. His office staff is efficient and Tina is a great cheerleader for the patients. He is far more reasonable than other dentists in this area and has the most modern equipment I have ever seen in a dentist’s office.
This has been one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. Attention to detail. Caring, kind, professional staff. So glad I found them. Highly recommended.
I had a toothache and I called them last minute to be seen and they accommodated my schedule and took care of my pain! Dr. Whaley and Tina are so professional and friendly I no longer have to be scared to go to the dentist! Thank you so much to all of the staff at Ellenton family dental.
Patient comfort is a top priority for Dr. Whaley, and he wants every patient to walk away satisfied.
