Re-opening June 1

It’s hard to believe, but from the first day of office closure to the first day of team training, Farmington Village Dental was shut down for 70 days.

Dental Reasons for Bad Breath

I’ve been a dentist in Farmington, CT for over 20 years and one thing I get asked about a lot is bad breath.  Patients are often wondering if what is going on their mouth is causing a bad odor or halitosis. First, let’s face it, every now and then we all have it…  The good thing is that for most of us it’s usually temporary.  Temporary halitosis can often be contributed to something that was eaten.  When halitosis becomes persistent […]

Straight Teeth In Six Months

Everyone wants to look their best and in the dental office it is very common for patients to ask Dr. Nadeau and Dr. Krause what they can do to improve their smile.  Sometimes this question is a result of having teeth that are chipped, worn or discolored.  Other times this question comes from someone who either has crooked/crowded teeth or someone who has spaces or gaps between their teeth. Teeth that are chipped, worn or discolored are best improved with […]
