Maintain Your Overall Health

Our holistic dental approach focuses on preventive care. This means that our dentist will work with you to prevent problems before they start, rather than just treating them after they occur.

By visiting your dentist for a cleaning, ideally twice a year, you can prevent common dental issues, like cavities and gum disease. This reduces the risk of more serious health complications, such as heart disease and diabetes. 

During a dental exam, your dentist has the opportunity to detect potential issues, such as oral cancer, early on. They can also check your bite and jaw for issues like TMJ disorder.

Proactive care can save you time, money, and discomfort in the long run. 

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are part of your routine dental check-up and ensure early detection and prompt treatment. Your dentist will use specialized tools to examine all areas of your mouth for any signs of oral cancer.

Support Your Smile With Dental Hygiene Cleanings

Your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat cavities and gum disease.

During the cleaning, they will use specialized tools to remove tartar and plaque buildup, polish your teeth to remove stains and do a thorough flossing to help you achieve optimal oral health.

Our office is fluoride-free. We use natural rinses and toothpaste during our dental hygiene cleanings.

Maintaining a healthy diet is just as important for your oral health as it is for your overall health. You can do this by:
