ALWAYS remember to brush your teeth at least two times a day, and floss at least once!
Make sure to use toothpaste that contains fluoride, and ask your dentist if you need a fluoride rinse. This will help prevent cavities.
Avoid foods with a lot of sugar (sugar increases the amount of bacteria that grows in your mouth causing more plaque and possibly cavities) and avoid tobacco (this can stain your teeth, cause gum disease, and eventually lead to oral cancer).
Don’t be afraid to brush your tongue! By brushing your tongue, you will remove food particles and reduce the amount of plaque-causing bacteria. Tongue brushing also helps keep your breath fresh.
Be sure to schedule your routine checkup. It is recommended that you visit the dentist every six months.
McLean Family Dentistry uses the most modern equipment, training and techniques to provide the best dental experience I have had in my life – and I have been to a lot of dentists. Dr. Chand and Elizabeth are so friendly and gentle, the whole family will LOVE their experience – especially the KIDS! I have to drive from Takoma Park, MD to see Dr. Chand but it is worth it.
This is a great dental practice for both children and adults. Dr. Chand and staff are friendly, professional, and very good at what they do. The facilities are clean and modern. My 3 year old LOVES going to the dentist now, as do we!
Dr. Chand makes you feel like family not her patient. This is coming from a person that has dental anxiety and she makes me so comfortable. One time my youngest son fell while sledding and broke his tooth and she saw us after hours when they were closing because I was so worried. All 3 of my kids just love going to see her and never complain because she always makes them feel cared for. She has gone above and beyond to take care of me and all of my tooth adventures 🙂 HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER… Read more
I broke a tooth this weekend and made an emergency call to Dr. Chand when I couldn’t reach my own dentist. She was fantastic. She dropped what she was doing and met me at her office on a Sunday afternoon since I had a trip planned for the next morning. In 30 minutes she reviewed the problem and — since it was impossible to repair the damage before my trip — gave me some suggestions for how to get through the next couple of days. I’m impressed and very grateful!
Dr. Chand and her staff are wonderful!! I usually am not a big fan of the dentist, but my experience at McLean Family Dentistry was relaxing and very enjoyable. Dr. Chand was very professional and very helpful in making me feel less nervous during the cleaning and procedure that I received. I would recommend her hands down to anyone looking for a great dentist!
I love the new web site and all the new content about Dr.Chand and the entire office. I have been really making progress because of Dr.Chand’s personal yet gentle approach to oral care (which I have neglected) she has offered me alternatives for care that were affordable being a retired individual, I have been thrilled with the continuously improving results. The office and staff does provide a very friendly, accepting home town atmosphere yet totally state of the art and professional, they are … Read more
My wife and I LOVE Dr. Chand. Nothing against all of the grey haired dentists out there, but Dr. Chand is young, full of energy, and uses all of the most up to date technology that dentistry has to offer. She and her staff are exceptionally friendly, and make you feel very comfortable during each visit. (As comfortable as you can be while your teeth are being drilled anyway.)Very importantly though, having gone with out dental insurance I can speak first hand to the outrageous prices some o… Read more
