Proper Dental Maintenance for a Healthy Smile

Preventative dentistry is the first step in total dental health. No matter how old you are – but especially for children – maintaining a schedule of proper dental cleanings and checkups will ensure the strongest teeth, healthiest gums and lowest risk of cavities, teeth damage or other serious problems.

New patients are always welcome at Gentle Care Dentistry. Your first visit will consist of a thorough dental examination and necessary diagnostic radiographs. Your exam will also include a soft tissue and oral cancer screening and a TMJ (temporalmandibular joint) evaluation. Once we have determined the status of your dental health, we can recommend the appropriate preventative cleanings for you, depending on your age and overall dental history.
