Our skilled, yet calming team will put you at ease right from your first appointment
Dental hygiene appointments—also called teeth cleaning appointments—help you achieve your healthiest teeth, mouth and gums! You’ll want to schedule these appointments at regular intervals, usually twice a year.
Adults – what to expect at your cleaning appointment
Once you’re settled, Dr. Duffy or a dental assistant will ask about your medical history, examine your mouth and decide which digital X-rays you may need for an accurate, complete checkup.
Gig Harbor’s Most Trusted General Dentistry Dentist
Are you looking for general dentistry in Gig Harbor, Washington? Come to Peninsula Family Dentistry for all your dental needs. Dr. Thomas Duffy is committed to providing excellent dental care for the entire family. He has extensive experience working with adults, children, and the elderly, and would be delighted to welcome your family into his practice. Unlike other dental offices, Dr. Duffy prefers to do most of your restorative care (fillings and other “dental work”) himself, ensuring that your results meet his high standards and that you and your family are well-cared for and comfortable.

General Dentistry and Your Oral Health
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires routine dental care and Dr. Duffy is passionate about the fact that your oral and overall health are intertwined. The American Dental Association recommends that you visit the dentist regularly, and we can help you figure out how often you should do so. Regular visits can help you avoid common dental problems like cavities and gum disease (gingivitis) or identify existing disease processes before they progress into root canals or advanced gum disease (periodontitis) and loss of teeth. They also help identify potential issues or systemic diseases that affect your teeth, gums, tongue and jaw, as well as affect your overall health.

- Dental Hygiene/Cleanings
- Exams & X-rays
- Dental Crowns
- Dental Bridges
- Dental Implants
- Dentures, including partials, immediate, and fixed hybrids commonly called all-on-four ®

Our practice is here for all of your dental needs, from a simple checkup and cleaning through the dental implant process. No matter what stage of life you’re in, taking care of your teeth is essential! Our knowledgeable staff will gladly assist you in receiving the preventative and restorative care you require to keep your teeth healthy, as well as any other general dentistry treatments you may need.
