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.


Dental Restoration is the process of restoring damaged, broken-down or missing teeth to a healthy, functional and beautiful state. Our doctors have extensive training and experience doing dental restorations and can handle any job, no matter how large or complex.

We use a variety of procedures to restore your teeth and smile, including dental implants, precision attachment partials or dentures, full mouth reconstruction, crowns, bridges. The method used will depend on the state of your teeth or the number of teeth missing, and your preferences.
