A preventative program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balance diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. This includes comprehensive dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
