General & Preventive Dentistry


Prevention, Prevention, Prevention.

Seeing your general dentist for preventive appointments is an important part of your overall health. Yes, that’s right, not just your oral health, but your overall health! Studies show a consistent link between an unhealthy mouth and heart disease, stroke, and memory loss. Seeing a general dentist twice a year for a thorough professional exam and cleaning might not only help you smile bigger, it could very well keep you smiling longer.
