Professional Family Dental Cleanings

Dr. Wood conducts a thorough examination that includes:
- An oral screening examination.
- Take and examine any necessary x-rays.
- Diagnose any evidence of periodontal disease.
Adult Examinations For Any Stage Of Life
Our clinical adult exams go above and beyond a basic teeth cleaning. Dr. Wood takes preventative measures, giving whatever time is necessary to conduct a thorough exam at each appointment.REQUEST APPOINTMENT

Gentle Children’s Dental Exams
We believe it is important to allow your children to become familiar with the dental office early so they will be comfortable with future visits. Each cleaning and exam, performed by our licensed dental hygienists, includes each of these steps:
- Examine the teeth and mouth for any abnormal conditions.
- Evaluate the effectiveness of tooth brushing and teach your child how to better care for their teeth and gums.
- Assess the need for sealants to help prevent decay on the back teeth.
- Advise on the need for future orthodontic correction.
