At Family Friendly Dentistry, we are passionate about our patients of all ages receiving routine dental care in our office. This is the time that we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also inspect them for problems such as decay.

We know that sometimes your oral hygiene routine can be a little lax, especially after a long day, but we want to stress the importance of caring for your teeth properly each and every day. Caring for your teeth properly now will save you a lot of time in our office and additional expenses that can add up over time. We are going to share some dental health tips to keep you out of the dentist’s chair:

This is especially a concern for our young patients, and we understand. Parents can get frustrated because it can be difficult for children to brush their teeth properly, especially when it comes to the small crevices in the back molars. Without proper brushing, decay can begin to develop. We offer a treatment that can be beneficial for all of our patients, young and old, who are concerned about tooth decay.
