Preventative program

A preventive program is a team effort that consists of the patient, our doctors and our entire dental team. The ultimate goal is to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with daily oral hygiene and a balanced diet.  The next step continues in our office by the efforts of Drs. Scruggs and Molina and our dental hygienists to promote, restore, and maintain our patients’ optimal oral health.  Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and radiographs.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
