We all grew up being told brushing and flossing are the key to healthy teeth. In actuality, these two habits are just the first steps to a healthy mouth for a lifetime. Visiting the dentist every six months for a cleaning is a proactive way to prevent common dental problems, such as tooth decay, that can lead to serious issues down the road.

Our experts at Dr. Dental understand that a key part of maintaining healthy teeth is receiving proactive dental care. We are devoted to educating and providing this to patients at an affordable cost.

The Center for Disease Control reports that tooth decay and gum disease affects 47% of adults older than 30 and 70% of adults 65 and older. Additionally, there is a rise in oral cancer in older Americans. Adults in these age brackets can significantly decrease their risk for dental problems by scheduling regular dental exams.

New England patients of all ages trust our experts at Dr. Dental to assess risk factors and work with them to customize treatment plans for optimal oral health. Preventing and managing tooth decay and gum disease early is essential to keep YOUR smile healthy.

Our dentists proudly participate in ongoing education to stay on top of the latest dental practices and industry standards and we see our patients as partners in dental care. It’s important patients feel comfortable with our dentists and staff and are at ease asking questions concerning dental treatment. Dr. Dental is here to help your smile.

Establishing a routine of regular, comprehensive exams and proactive maintenance will prevent more costly complications and uncomfortable problems down the road. And that’s a win for your smile and overall health!
