Our Core Value

  • Detection of incipient cavities (early stage decay)
  • Detection of broken or fractured teeth- including old fillings
  • Early detection of  periodontal disease
  • Oral cancer screening exam
  • Attention to food traps, bad breath or jaw pain
  • Care and removal of  stains on teeth
  • Detection of poor fitting crowns, bridges, and fillings
  • Assessment of adequacy of home hygiene habits and routines
  • Evaluation of supporting gums and bone around teeth
  • Review of any other concerns you might have regarding your personal condition and strategy for dental disease prevention
  • Provides positive experiences with the dentist for children and for those with dental fears and anxiety
