Preventative Dentistry involves procedures designed to minimize periodontal problems, as well as, help avoid cavities. Prevention also involves Oral Cancer screenings to detect lesions at the earliest possible time to improve the likeleyhood of successful treatment. We are currently making Vizilite Oral cancer screenings available. This technology allows us to visualize the tissues of the mouth in a new and improved way providing earler detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions.

We advise all participants in contact and non-contact sports to protect themselves from traumatic injury by wearing a strong and well fit mouthguard.
