Common Questions
 




How did you get the name AurorA Dental?

Dr. Bland wrote down every word that appealed to him in the dictionary.  He then went back and read the meanings. He kept remembering the word aurora [aw-rawr-uh] the dawn, a new beginning, to shine, rise of something, and sunrise. Dr. B translated it to a new day.. a new you ... a new smile to shine.

The company logo represents a partial sunrise with streamers of light coming up over Fountain Lake and Albert Lea Lake. In the office, you will notice some of the decor has been dipped in aurora borealis, twinkles of light, and sparkling trinkets.

At what age should I first bring my child to the dentist?

At the age of 3 years old. Early visits help both parents and the children. Your child will begin to feel comfortable in our office at an early age, which can go a long way to reducing fear or stress later on.

My gums bleed when I brush.  Should I be concerned?

Bleeding gums are not normal. They can be a sign of infection caused by gum disease. This type of infection has recently been linked to other serious diseases such as heart and diabetes. 

Fortunately, our staff is expert at explaining and treating gum disease as well as helping you prevent it.  We offer a variety of treatment options, from non surgical to local antibiotic therapies.

If your gums are bleeding, don't wait! Make an appointment to come in.

Do you accept referrals?

YES!

About 65 percent of our practice is from word of mouth from our patients. The referrals of family, friends, and co-workers is the greatest compliment that you can give us.
