But we don’t enjoy seeing them in pain or stressing about how much dental treatment might cost. The best way to see our patients less and for them to save more money and time is regular exams and cleanings.

Regular exams and cleaning achieve early detection. When small problems are detected early on it prevents disease from going further. When a problem is identified early, it can, in most cases, be addressed quickly, simply and inexpensively.

Comprehensive Dental Exam

Our exams cover everything from your teeth and jaw including the soft tissues of the head and neck. This is crucial for us to arrive at your complete diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We measure and record your level of gum disease, tooth decay, TMJ health, occlusion, and complete an oral cancer screening. Radiographs (x-rays) are an essential part of this exam because they allow us to evaluate the majority of the tooth that cannot be seen with the eye.

Dental Cleaning

Cleanings are absolutely necessary for the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease. Our dental hygienist Kirsten is here to gently remove plaque, tartar, and stain. She monitors the health of your teeth and gums.

Kirsten will use  state of the art dental hygienist techniques and tools such as ultrasonic scaling, hand scaling, and polishing to clean your teeth.  The process is essential to remove plaque and calculous build up, prevent cavities and prevention of gum diseases such as gingivitis. Only a professional dental cleaning can remove calculous build up.

All of our staff takes the time to listen, answer questions and explain what will be happening during your visit. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Education is a big priority in our office. Open communication, education and understanding helps us earn your trust which allows us to work together as a team for the betterment of your oral health.

Prevention is our ultimate goal. If all we ever had to do is exams and cleanings with our patients we would be ecstatic. The reality of the situation is that even the person that flosses twice a day and brushes after ever meal can experience oral trauma, pain and oral disease. This is why we offer a wide variety of treatment options to fit within your personal, medical and financial needs. Along with affordable options to restore damaged or missing teeth.
