Prevention

It Starts With You

At our clinic, prevention is integral to the way we operate. Our faculty and student doctors want to keep you smiling! Prevention includes steps you can take at home, as well as cleanings, exams, and regular check-up visits with our dental team. We are your partner in ensuring your oral health.

Checkups & Cleanings

Regular dental visits help maintain proper oral health, and let us correct little problems before they get big. Your first visit to our clinic will include a screening to gather the necessary information to advise you of your treatment needs.  Subsequent visits might include a comprehensive exam, specialty consultations, formal treatment plan presentation, and other restorative and preventive care. Fees for our services are approximately one half of the fees charged by a typical private practice located in the Phoenix area.

Daily Home Care

Good oral health begins at home and the goal is to remove plaque from your teeth. Plaque causes tooth decay and gum disease. The ADA recommends brushing twice daily with an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste. Clean between your teeth each day with floss or an inter-dental cleaner to remove decay-causing bacteria toothbrush bristles can't reach.

Infant Care

Good dental care begins when the first tooth comes in! Proper dental care is part of healthy growth. Bring your infant (less than 24 months old) to the clinic on our special free screening days to receive a free general screening and tips on how to keep your baby's teeth and mouth healthy.
