Preventive care reduces the need for more extensive procedures in the future. Your regular care visits are structured to maintain healthy teeth and gums and detect areas of risk. Your initial appointment will include:

  • Thorough examination of teeth and gums
  • Radiographs (X-Rays) if necessary
  • Study Models if necessary for treatment planning
  • Intra-oral camera utilization (to make informed decisions and view vulnerable areas)
  • Personal consultation

Regular hygiene appointments maintain good oral health. For added protection, sealants or fluoride treatment may be recommended. Thorough cleaning, polishing and oral cancer screening is performed at each check-up.

Dr. Whiteside works closely with skilled staff members who are equally committed to your care. It is our goal for your smile to look as good as it feels.
