As dental practitioners, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the main aspects of 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. Routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. They are important to the beauty of your smile, but we’re also concerned about your health. Your medical history will also be reviewed to help us stay informed of your overall health, as any medications or illnesses may impact your dental health.
