Dental care starts with you! The first step to proper dental care is daily brushing and flossing. These will remove the surface level plaque on your teeth. The other vital piece to your overall dental health is routine cleanings at your dentist office. Our registered dental hygienists will not only remove hardened plaque at the gum line and between teeth, but they will be your ally on the path to a healthy, beautiful smile. Regular cleanings are crucial in the fight against gum disease and tooth decay. Preventative treatments, such as routine brushing and flossing, as well as regularly scheduled cleanings, are the keys to successful dental health. 


At your appointment, one of our registered dental hygienists will begin by scaling (scraping) any tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth. Plaque and tartar build-up are the leading causes of cavities and gum disease. Following the scaling, the hygienists will polish the enamel on your teeth, removing any remaining plaque and helping to remove stains. One of our three dentists will then examine your mouth, looking for any potential issues, and will discuss a plan to keep you on the track to a healthy smile. 

Our goal is to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to ensure you have a successful dental health journey.
