I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Turnwald and his great staff. You're always greeted by name and made to feel valued. Your comfort is paramount; you're asked if you want a warm neck pillow as you relax in the chair. All throughout the procedure, you are informed about what is happening. I love going to this place because I know when I leave, I will be feeling much better than when I arrived.

Family Dentistry Services in Schaumburg, IL
Your first appointment with Benjamin Turnwald Dentistry is based on your needs. A comprehensive exam involves evaluating the health of your gums, teeth, and bone to ensure your oral and overall health are in tip-top shape. A comprehensive exam could include:
- Digital x-rays
- Dental decay assessment
- Oral cancer screening
- Periodontal and tooth charting
- TMJ assessment
Dental cleanings involve one-on-one time with one of our amazing dental hygienists (AKA hy-geniuses!) Leah or Sarah. She will gently (but thoroughly!) remove tartar and plaque from your teeth to ensure your teeth and gums are clean and healthy.
Are you noticing the early signs of gum disease? Those signs include:
- Red and bleeding gums
- Gum recession
- Persistent bad breath
- Tender gums
These could be signs you are in need of scaling and root planing, which is a deep cleaning conducted by one of our hygienists. This non-surgical procedure involves our hygienist removing calculus and plaque from tooth surfaces below the gumline and along the tooth root.
If not treated, you could put your smile at risk of advanced gum disease, which results in tooth loss. Don’t worry! Our hygienists are known for their gentle touch and professional hand-holding abilities. We’ll do whatever possible to ensure you’re comfortable from start to finish.
Did you know 30,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer each year, according to the American Cancer Society? Luckily, it’s possible to treat oral cancer when you catch the early signs. At Benjamin Turnwald Dentistry, we offer annual oral cancer exams to check for any abnormalities. If Dr. Turnwald notices any signs of oral cancer, he’ll talk to you about the next steps to stop this disease from progressing.
Sealants consist of a thin, tooth-colored coating that is painted onto your teeth (especially on the back molars). This creates a protective layer over the tooth surfaces to prevent tooth decay and future dental problems.
