White Bear Smiles | Membership Program

Have you ever said or heard someone say, "I need to go to the dentist but I don't have insurance and the dentist is so expensive"?

At White Bear Smiles, we offer what we call our "Membership Program".

What is the Membership Program?

What the membership program offers is two cleanings, a fluoride treatment, unlimited exams and x-rays and 15-30% off of dental treatment for a low yearly fee that is much cheaper than dental insurance. New patient adults can purchase the plan at $189 and ...

SPRING IS HERE... and it's time for a spring cleaning!

orange tulips | Dental Cleaning in White Bear Lake MN | White Bear Smiles

Spring has sprung and what a wonderful time of year! It's lighter out longer, the trees start budding, flowers push up through the ground, and we enjoy more time outside in the fresh air. Spring is also a time where people clear away the accumulated clutter in their homes and give their houses a good cleaning. We should use this time of year to give our mouths a good cleaning as well. It is important that we get a good dental cleaning every six months to clear away the plaque that regular brushing and flossing can't take care of. Help keep the cavities away by scheduling your dental cleaning at ...

Relief Through a Bite Splint...

Dr. Paul Anderson, DDS | White Bear Smiles | White Bear Lake, MN

Dear patients,

There is help for people troubled by grinding or clenching of teeth. A removable appliance, called a bite splint can be specially molded to fit over the upper or lower teeth, depending on the patient's particular requirements. It's made from plastic, is comfortable to wear, and does not affect facial attractiveness.

The bite splint is used when relief is sought from a wide range of uncomfortable syndromes. These include headaches, neck aches, dizziness, jaw clicking or cracking, and pain behind the eyes, among others. Bite splints most commonly are worn at night: others use them for daytime stress, a few require them 24 hours a day.

If untreated, grinding/clenching of teeth ...
