Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays everyone! Just a short post to wish everyone well over the holidays and best of luck in the new year. We will be out of the office December 22 and will return January 2. We are periodically checking messages. If you are a patient of Dr. Goyer or Dr. Coe and experiencing a dental emergency, please call (509) 525-7250 and select option 2 and one of the doctors will return your call as soon as possible.

We look forward to seeing everyone in the new year. Remember, the new year also brings insurance changes, so please keep us updated as benefits may change in the new year. We do our best to research your coverage prior to your appointment. Safe travels.

Be merry!

Dentures: Fit for Life

Dentures that fit not only add to your enjoyment of life but are essential to maintaining your health. Properly fitting dentures also help support facial muscles and allow for more natural speaking and chewing. There are many types of dentures and options to consider when determining your oral health future. Dental implants placed in the jaw and attached to the denture, for example, help prevent bone loss and improve your ability to chew more naturally.

Financial planning is another very important aspect to consider. Medicare and Medicaid provide little to no dental benefit coverage. Plan ahead to create a treatment plan with your doctor to ensure that you are fit for life.
