Services to Smile About 

Preventive Dentistry

  • Dental Cleaning and check-ups: Give your smile the benefit of expert and professional care. Allow them to clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can, unfortunately, lead to tooth decay and periodontal. They will then floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile. At the same time, they examine your beautiful smile for critical signs of any harmful dental conditions or diseases.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings:

During all routine dental cleanings and exams, they do all they can to detect and treat oral cancers and other worrying abnormalities at the earliest stage possible. 

  • Oral Hygiene Instruction:

They do everything they can in their office to keep your smile shining. However, maintaining proper care of your mouth and teeth at home is essential for consistent oral hygiene. They will help provide you and your family with information on the best way to care for their teeth and keep their mouths clean and healthy.

  • Patient Education:

In hopes of giving everyone the opportunity for happy and healthy smiles, they help each patient, regardless of age, to understand how their mouth works and how to keep it healthy. They offer information on how you can help keep your family’s smiles bright and confident. 

  • Periodontal Disease Detection and Treatment: Periodontal disease sadly affects a high percentage of the adult population in the US, and it can lead to damaging results, such as tooth loss. They do their best to detect signs, take preventative steps from it becoming worse, and find ways to treat new patients who already have it.
