Preventative Care

Prevention of dental disease is the key to keeping your teeth for a lifetime. Our continuous care program, tailored to individual need, starts as soon as treatment begins. Our goal is always optimal dental health. We believe that the only way to achieve that consistently is to set high standards of care and insist on regular visits with our dental hygienist.

To take care of your teeth, brush your teeth at least twice a day, preferably after every meal, and remember to floss afterward.   Seeing us regularly is critical for maintaining healthy teeth and gums, in addition to keeping cavities and periodontal disease in check. 

We often can detect other problems before they actually cause a surprise problem. Regularly scheduled appointments for dental recare, are a must.
At the time of your recare visit, please advise our Appointment Coordinator of any changes in your overall health, any medications you are taking, marital status, address, telephone number, employment or insurance change.
