Frequently Asked Questions
Why is your practice named Monet Aesthetic Dentistry?
We believe superior dental work includes artistry, but that isn't the real answer to this question. Actually, Monet is Dr. Metzger's middle name. You could say that Dr. Metzger is truly the Monet of aesthetic dentistry!
Why do you use adult fluoride?
Traditionally, fluoride is something we consider important for kids with developing teeth. However, we promote the use of fluoride in adults because it has been shown to deter tooth decay in adults. As we age, we find that seniors will start developing more cavities due to prescription medications and dry mouth from less salavary production that occurs with aging. We believe it is just as important for children as for adults.
