A preventive program is a cooperative effort by a patient, their dentist and dental staff to preserve the patient’s 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.

Prevention continues in your dentist’s office as your dentist and dental hygienist work to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments, which help protect the teeth.

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