"Had a very fast, and great experience in Dr. Toms office. Everyone was friendly, and very helpful."- T.R. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2020
"I have extreme anxiety and fear about the dentist. I had a lower molar that had been troubling me for years but no dentist could ever get it to numb enough to fix it due to my resistance to local anesthetics. Dr. Toms used sedation dentistry techniques to correct the issues with my tooth and I can honestly say it was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist. I highly recommend his practice especially if you deal with anxiety over dentistry work. He and his staff were extremely friendly and made me feel like I was there only concern. The procedure was painless (although I must admit I dont think I was even awake for most of it) and just a few hours later I can acually chew again with a tooth I haven't been able to use for years. Thank you Dr. Toms!"- J.G. / Google / Feb 12, 2020

Once you achieve your desired color, you can quit using your home treatments. For result maintenance, you need to keep an excellent oral hygiene regimen and implement lifestyle changes, such as avoiding staining foods, drinks, and tobacco products. Additionally, you ought to schedule twice yearly professional cleanings at Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. so stains will be polished, and annual dental examinations so Dr. Toms may check on your general dental health. You should keep your mouth trays clean and in a secure place, so in the event that you want to resume your whitening treatment, you would just have to buy more bleaching gel.
