At Quince Orchard Dental Care, our practice is a complete health practice, which means that while our specialty is oral health, we consider your overall health in everything we do. Educating our patients on the systemic link between the mouth and the body is one unique and very important aspect of our practice. We desire that our patients understand that the risk of contracting other inflammatory diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other serious diseases can be raised by periodontal disease. Dental Care and related procedures/ treatments that are meant to prevent oral health problems are given the general term Preventative Dentistry. Preventative Dentistry focuses on the avoidance of cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more through education and awareness.

Most insurance companies recommend scheduling a dental care appointment every 6 months, but we believe that dental care appointments should occur every 3 or 4 months and we take the time to educate you why. It is our ultimate belief that no dental filling is the best filling to have. Prevention, therefore, is the best medicine. We encourage the application of fluoride, especially for patients who have or have had many cavities or fillings or who have gum disease. The risk of cavities and other dental diseases, and the maintenance of optimal oral health, can be dramatically decreased by:

  • Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day
  • Daily flossing
  • Eating healthy
  • Regular dental visits

Preventive Dentistry incorporates knowledge and education that equips children and adults with the techniques they need to keep teeth clean, strong and white. At Quince Orchard Dental Care, we strive to provide attentive consultations that allow for us to delve a little deeper and provide education about proper dental care as well as your overall health. We try to keep your wait for your appointment to a minimum, while ensuring that we don’t rush you or persons who were ahead of you. Timeliness and attentiveness are cornerstones in how we do what we do. We invite you to come in and maybe for the first time...start enjoying visits with your dentist.
