A preventive 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 balanced 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.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
professional and knowledgeable. Dr Nguyen has my best interest in mind. She was not looking into expensive treatments but clearly explained which procedures were best for my dental health.

Wonderful and painless!! I have never had a cavity before, and my husband said that it would hurt so bad that I would rip the arm rests off the chair, but I didn't feel anything. I was so scared and I was relieved when I felt nothing.
