"Dr. Solooski and his staff at DentalWork in Fairlawn are awesome! They are very professional, friendly and helpful. Dr. Solooski has been taking care of my family dental health for 20 years now. I brought my 88 years old mom in for him to do her bridges and mom is very happy with her bridges. Before she had her bridges, she had 7 teeth removed and she had no issues or much swelling after the surgery. The surgeon who removed her teeth, Dr. K did an excellent job. Highly recommend Dr. Solooski!! :)"- T.P. / Google / Feb 01, 2019
"I have been a patient for 5+years and have always received exceptional care and service. Every staff member has been professional, courteous, knowledgeable and kind. I am always confident I am in good hands and never feel pressured even when additional services are recommended. I am not always the best with my home care routine (flossing, etc) so I appreciate the reminders to get me back on track. I recommend this practice!"- K.B. / Google / Jan 21, 2019
What to Expect
A thorough dental exam will start with a discussion between our dentist and the patient. Our dentist will ask about the patient's health, including any current medications, illnesses or surgeries. Our dentist will ask the patient to find out if they have noticed any areas of concern. To get a complete picture of the individual's mouth, our dentist will take digital X-rays to view the teeth, gum, and bones. A visual check of the mouth with palpation will also help in checking signs of oral decay or disease. The probing tool will be used to check the condition of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and identifying areas of recession.
If our dentists find any areas of concern during the dental consultation, they will talk to the patient about possible treatment plans that may be performed at DentalWorks - Fairlawn or at the patient's home. Progress will be important so that the patient can continue to improve their dental health. If a patient has ongoing issues our dentists may suggest that he or she visit a oral surgeon or specialist.
