A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff 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 good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
In all my years (60), until I began seeing Dr. Karen Strickland several years ago, I have never been at ease or satisfied with a dentist. Dr. Karen and her staff have taken the fear out of being in the dentist chair and replaced it with having a caring and fun exchange. Plus, I am extremely satisfied with the results. I can count on getting the best work on my teeth. When I move back to Mississippi, I will drive the extra miles to see her, it is worth it!
