Preventative Dentistry means a healthy smile for your child.  Children with healthy mouths chew more easily and gain more nutrients from the foods they eat.  They learn to speak quickly and clearly.  They have a better chance of general health, because disease in the mouth can endanger the rest of the body.  A healthy mouth is more attractive giving children confidence in their appearance.  Finally, preventative dentistry means less extensive and less expensive treatment for your child.


Preventative dentistry involves:

  • Brushing
  • Dental development
  • Flossing
  • Flouride
  • Oral habits
  • Orthodontics
  • Parent involvement
  • Proper diet
  • Sealants
  • Sports safety


Preventative dentistry begins with the first tooth.
