Dentistry is not just about keeping your teeth clean and cavity-free—it’s about ensuring overall oral health and overall bodily health. Thyroid exams are one more way to make sure our patients lead healthy lives and take care of themselves
Marietta, GA (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Verde Pointe Dental Associates, cosmetic dentists Marietta, GA wants to do more than clean their patients' teeth. They want to monitor not only their patients' dental health, but their overall health as well.
Verde Pointe is proud to announce that its staff now administers thyroid exams to patients. When patients visit Verde Pointe for routine cleanings and oral check-ups, the Verde Pointe dentists and staff now examine their neck and throat to check for lumps, bumps, or abnormal thyroids. These thyroid exams alert patients to thyroid health problems they may not have been aware of before their visit. If thyroid nodules are detected, the Verde Pointe staff encourages their patients to visit a medical doctor who can undertake further tests to make sure the nodules are not cancerous.
“We are committed to the health of our patients in general,” said Dr. Kirk Kimmerling DDS, the lead Marietta dentist at Verde Pointe. “Dentistry is not just about keeping your teeth clean and cavity-free—it’s about ensuring overall oral health and overall bodily health. Thyroid exams are one more way to make sure our patients lead healthy lives and take care of themselves. We are proud to add thyroid exams to our list of exquisite services."
These added thyroid exams have quickly become an important part of Verde Pointe’s practice, especially because patients are unlikely to find thyroid nodules on their own (the nodules are difficult to feel and may not cause noticeable symptoms). Patients have expressed gratitude to Dr. Kimmerling and his staff for their dedication to their health and well-being.
