About Us

Your oral health is more important than you might realize. While gum disease and cavities are important to keep an eye out for, they actually can have a negative effect on the rest of your body’s health as well. Protect yourself by reserving time for your preventive dental checkup today!

Preventive Care

Preventive care is another way to say “disease prevention”. The connection between the health of your mouth and your entire body is strong – if one is healthy, the other is as well. Conversely, if your oral environment isn’t in tip-top shape, the bacteria from your mouth can travel unchecked into the rest of your body and a multitude of problems can arise as it goes overboard in its fight against the unexpected microbes. Above all, we want our patients to have the knowledge and ability to prevent oral disease and, in turn, keep their entire bodies healthy.

Why We Focus On Prevention

Prevention is the most efficient and cost-effective way to maintain your total health. Regarding your mouth, preventive dental treatment creates the biggest benefit for you, the patient, and saves you from pain, tooth loss, and more expensive dental care. For us, it’s about teaching you new information and helping you create habits that will improve your quality of life. Because we’re passionate about educating our patient family on prevention, they are the ones that reap the benefit of this knowledge the most — and we’re more than willing to share it.

What is CAMBRA?

Being focused on preventive dentistry, we implement and believe in the use of CAMBRA: Caries Management By Risk Assessment. When looking at your risk factors including diet, oral hygiene, and oral health history, we are able to determine how likely it is for you to develop dental caries and can come up with a personalized plan to prevent further decay. Instead of getting cavities filled and refilled every year, CAMBRA allows us to encourage and educate our patients to actually reduce their risk of decay in order to increase the life of each tooth. We would much rather touch your teeth as little as possible!
