Preventive Dental Services

Maintain your oral hygiene.

Since the team at Dentistry NW want all patients to experience optimal oral health, we recommend routine exams and cleanings to be done every six months.

During routine exams Dr. Smith can detect problems when they are small and very easy to treat, many times preventing costly, more involved treatments down the road.

Our routine visits also include individualized patient education describing how you can best care for your teeth and gums at home to keep them healthy. A well executed at-home oral care routine is crucial to having a healthy mouth.

During a routine exam we check for any signs of decay, gum disease, cracked or leaking fillings, cracked, chipped or broken teeth or sores, which may lead to serious problems if left untreated. We will also address any concerns you may have such as halitosis (bad breath), crooked or crowded teeth, and tooth or mouth pain.

Maintenance and prevention are the best ways to keep your smile healthy and you feeling your best!

I avoided seeing a dentist for years because I was so afraid. I’m so grateful I found Dentistry NW. The staff is amazing and were so patient with me and all the challenges my anxiety brings. I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dentists chair. The dental assistant even held my hand while I got my shots! Love this office so much.

Dr. Baer has been my dentist for many years, since he began practicing at the old Tacoma Mall location. Though support staff has changed over the years, they have always been friendly and conscientious. All needed dental procedures have been well explained with alternatives given. Hygienists also well appreciated for care they take. State of the art with spirit of family dentistry.
