We enjoy seeing patients of all ages in our practice, and are committed to providing you and your family with comprehensive dental care in a warm, friendly environment.

Regular visits to the dentist have been proven to help prevent dental decay and gum disease. Dr. Stephens and our Hygiene Team work together to monitor your dental health and perform preventive treatments to help keep your smile healthy.

Our recommended oral health regimen includes:

dental care at homeEffective Home Care
Proper brushing and flossing is the best defense against gum disease and dental decay. We recommend that patients brush and floss two to three times per day.

    • It is especially important to thoroughly clean the teeth, gums and tongue prior to bedtime to reduce the bacteria levels in the mouth and minimize harmful bacterial activity as much as possible while you sleep.
    • For children too young to brush, parents should brush their teeth for them using a small soft bristle toothbrush.

dental checkupsRoutine Cleanings and Checkups
In addition to great home care, it is a smart move to maintain a regular schedule of checkups and cleanings to help avoid unexpected costs of dental treatment.

    • For most adults, we recommend 2-4 preventive care visits per year, and children at least twice a year.
    • At each visit, we will take any necessary xrays to see areas not visible to the naked eye, and examine the teeth and gums carefully to look for any signs of disease or infection.

nutrition Good Nutrition
A balanced diet based on the five food groups is also good for healthy teeth and gums. Read more about healthy eating at the NIH National Institutes of Health web site.
