Patient Education & Preventative Dentistry
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.
We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we concerned about the beauty of your smile, our primary focus is on your overall dental health.
A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health. Part of our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs.
