Preventive Care: We focus our efforts on finding ways for you to avoid the need for active dental therapy. Our goal is to have every patient in what we call "maintenance mode," where the combination of effective home care and regular check-ups and cleanings keep potential problems at bay. Some examples of preventive dentistry are fluoride treatments that strengthen the enamel surfaces of the teeth and the application of sealants to grooved or pitted surfaces before cavities can develop.

Digital Radiography: Our X-ray systems are 100% digital, reducing patients’ exposure to radiation by as much as 90% and eliminating the discharge of chemicals into the wastewater system. For intraoral radiographs, we use the DEXIS Digital X-ray System, where film packets have been replaced by a small sensor that is positioned in the mouth. We take panoramic X-rays using the GenDex 8500 DDE Digital Panoramic X-ray System. In both cases, results are available to the doctor immediately for diagnosis.
