Family & Preventative Dentistry
Preventative dentistry is the key to good dental health care.
Many of us have grown up never having visited a hygienist, never knowing that we needed to brush our gums as well as our teeth (more teeth are lost through gum disease than tooth decay), that our diets affect our dental health, that dental problems are linked to systemic diseases and so on. We never cease to be amazed at the number of stories from patients who have come to White after poor experiences in their past, to find that there is a different approach to dentistry.
Our philosophy is simple. We spend time with you to give you the knowledge and the tools to enable you to maintain and sustain healthy teeth and gums for life.
We want to ensure that our children are given the education to ensure that they have lovely healthy teeth and gums which is why we have devised our complimentary “Open Wide” days for our young patients.
We cannot guarantee after you will never experience gum disease or tooth decay but the chances of it happening are greatly reduced by brushing for two minutes - twice a day, flossing and regular maintenance appointments. Early diagnosis and prompt help will avoid complex and potentially expensive treatment later on.
