Preventive Dentistry

Boy brushing teethWe truly believe that the best way to treat cavities is to PREVENT them from happening at the first place. During our appointment, we will spend a significant amount of time talking about cavity and oral injury prevention. We will discuss healthy snacks, demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques, athletic mouth guard usage, and infant oral health care instructions. We will also speak about what to anticipate during your child’s next growth phase. Thorough cleaning, fluoride treatment, digital X-rays, and proper referrals to other specialists, are just some of the ways that we can actively help your child maintaining the best possible oral health condition.

In addition to Dr. Chen’s specialty training in pediatric dentistry, his Masters degree in Public Health (MPH) will further improve your child’s preventive strategies.
