Family Dental Hygiene

Gentle dental care and maintenance for the whole family, with treatments and advice based on your needs. With a preventive approach you can enjoy less cavities, control over gum disease and fewer future dental appointments. 

YES! THE GOAL IS TO SEE ME LESS!

New Client Exam

During your first visit we explore your dental past and determine your future dental needs. Are you at risk for cavities? Peridontal disease and tooth loss? With a thorough assessment and knowing what tools or products best suit your needs, we can get you on a new path to healthy teeth for life.

Dental Cleaning

Dental cleanings are the most thorough way to remove the deposits of plaque and calculus that accumulate on teeth over time. I pride myself on the compliments I recieve about my gentle yet thorough technique. With correct planning, we can reduce the amount of deposits that reform, allowing you to extend the time in between your dental care visits. 

Polish and Stain Removal

Surface stains are removed during dental cleanings during scaling, and with the use of a rotary tool much like an electric brush. Surface stains are usually caused by food, drink, or calculus. When not removed regularly the stain starts to accumulate in the enamel surface, and may require teeth whitening.


Periodontal Care

Deep pockets? Ongoing bleeding spots? Gum recession? Periodontal therapy will help you take control and avoid tooth loss and ongoing infection. If 3 or 4 month visits for teeth cleaning aren't working for you, please call for a free consultation. We can create a plan to improve your dental health while reducing appointment costs, and offering one on one coaching to ensure you are using the best techniques and products where you need to. 

Cavities

Do you or your child seem to have a new cavity to be filled or 'watched' every few years? Why do some people get cavities and others do not? The foods you eat and toothpaste you use are only part of the equation. If you are tired of the expense, pain, and the ongoing rollercoaster of dental issues, you have come to the right place! With a thorough assessment of your risk factors, as well as products focused on both hardening your teeth as well as eliminating cavity bacteria, you will get to enjoy the words 'No cavities!', much more often.

Dental Fear and Anxiety

If having professional dental care or being in a dental office creates uneasy or anxious feelings, or you are avoiding dental treatment for these reasons, you are not alone. I have helped many adults and children cope with their fears by offering shorter appointments, explanations about care, less invasive options for treatment of cavities, and understanding and acting on what each persons unique concerns are. We work together to ultimately, help you take control of your mouth, and reduce the number of times you need to see a dentist!
