The goal of preventive dentistry is to help people keep their teeth healthy and strong. Our dentist can help you avoid tooth decay and other problems by keeping your teeth and gums from becoming unhealthy. Sometimes a preventive dentist is able to detect gum disease in the earliest stages, and can provide treatment quickly to keep it from becoming a serious problem.
Our dentist will probably schedule you for regular checkups once or twice per year. He will inspect your teeth carefully, and provide a deep cleaning to remove any built up plaque or deposits that may have formed since your last visit. The dentist may take new x-rays of your teeth to see how healthy they are beneath the gums as well. Preventive dental visits are very routine and can usually be scheduled precisely because they don't require any unusual dental work to be done.
Our dentist will also give you homework after your preventive dentistry visit. He or she will explain how you can keep your teeth healthy by brushing and flossing daily. You'll find out if you've been brushing too hard, or if you should concentrate on flossing a little more in the back of your mouth. A preventive dentist may recommend certain types of toothbrushes or toothpaste for your particular oral health needs.
Our dentist practice usually sees quite a few children every day. As children lose their baby teeth and begin to develop adult teeth, it is important to have a dentist keep track of the shifting teeth as they grow. Preventive dentistry for children often includes fluoride treatments to strengthen their teeth. Sometimes a preventive dentist will apply a dental sealant on the teeth of children to help keep damaging bacteria away from the tooth enamel. Children are also examined for teeth that are out of alignment, or growing incorrectly. Our preventive dentist may recommend a specialist if necessary. Discovering potential problems before they become serious can make the treatment process much faster and easier.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
