Regular Dental Checkups in Waukee, IA

A regular dental checkup is important for several reasons. We use these visits to examine your mouth to ensure that no new problems or issues have developed since your last visit. Many dental health concerns can only be discovered through a thorough, professional examination. Our hygienists will take the time to provide a deeper cleaning than what is possible at home. We advise our patients to schedule a regular checkup every six months due to the importance of these visits. Your regular checkup includes a full examination, a professional cleaning, digital X-rays (when necessary) and an oral cancer screening.

Full Examination

During your examination, we will carefully check your teeth and gums for any signs of problems that may have developed. If we spot any problems, we can make suitable recommendations based on your unique situation.

Professional Cleaning

A professional dental cleaning is a procedure that is performed to thoroughly clean your teeth, gums, and mouth. Special tools are used to scrape off plaque and tartar from the teeth. The teeth are then polished to remove stains on the surface of the teeth. After your cleaning, your teeth will look and feel great, and your breath will be fresh.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are photographs taken using digital radiography that helps to reveal the internal structure of your mouth. Images can be uploaded to a monitor so that the findings can be easily shared. Some of the issues that we may find using digital X-rays include decay, gum disease, oral cancer and more.

Oral Cancer Screening

This procedure allows our professionals to find any signs of oral cancer. Your tongue, lips, cheeks, gums, throat, and all soft tissues in and around the mouth will be examined.

I have the WORST anxiety with dentists and I feel so comfortable at Lush Family Dental. It is worth my 35 minute drive out to Waukee to receive care from a place I feel so comfortable with. The staff is incredibly welcoming and are able to accommodate my needs. I look forward to a lasting relationship with Lush!


Never been a big fan of going to the dentist, but when i needed dental care, I called Lush and it was the best decision! My whole experience has been positive and enjoyable. Everyone from Lush is super friendly and great to talk to. I'm glad I chose Lush!
