Preventative & Periodontal Care

Preventive dental practices can save you from pain, expense, and time in the dental chair.  Dr. Anderson, along with his assistant and hygienist, will help you prevent the need for extensive dental work by conducting your thorough oral examination and teeth cleaning twice each year. By regularly assessing your teeth, jaw, and gums, we can find and treat problems before they escalate and cause more damage. If we find occlusal or periodontal issues, we can offer conservative, prompt therapy to ensure your return to complete oral health, comfort, and wellness.

These preventive and periodontal services will keep your smile fresh and functional:
