What Is Comprehensive Dental Care?

Excellent care provided by warm, welcoming, kind hearted team of professionals. This was my first ever visit to a dentist’s office and I was made to feel completely at ease by Dr. Tardos and her staff. I don’t think many places could take something as uncomfortable as a teeth cleaning and make it a rather fun and pleasant experience. Thank you!
What Can I Expect from a Comprehensive Dental Exam?
During your routine appointment in our dental office, a hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, and Dr. Tadros will examine the teeth, gums, and soft tissues of the mouth to check for any disease or decay. This ensures that you are in good oral health.
