Dental Hygiene / Preventive Dentistry

Dental Hygiene / Preventive dentistry is dental care that helps maintain good oral health. It’s a combination of regular dental check-ups along with developing good habits like brushing and flossing.

Taking care of your child’s oral health starts early in childhood and extends throughout the course of their life.

The earlier we see your child(ren), the earlier preventive dental care can begin.
Preventive dentistry for kids can help identify problems early in your child’s life before dental problems become worse and often more costly.
