At The Dental Office At Chestnut Hill, we understand that family dentistry plays a crucial role in ensuring your entire family’s long-term oral health and well-being. We are committed to providing many family dental services that go above and beyond simple tooth polishing. Our dedicated team of professionals is passionate about helping you and your loved ones achieve and maintain optimal oral health throughout your lives.

With our comprehensive range of family dental services, we aim to address all aspects of oral care to prevent the development of dental issues and maintain healthy smiles. Our experienced dentists are equipped with the latest techniques and state-of-the-art technology to deliver the highest standard of care. These services include:

Full Dental Exam: Our experienced dentist will carefully assess your oral health during a complete dental exam, looking for any signs of potential problems that may require further treatment. This allows us to catch issues early on and provide timely intervention.

Dental X-rays: Dental X-rays are crucial in identifying tooth decay and orthodontic issues that are not easily visible to the naked eye. By utilizing X-rays, our dentists can detect problems hiding between the teeth and beneath the gums, enabling early diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Thorough Teeth Cleanings: Regular professional teeth cleanings by our skilled hygienists are the foundation of family dentistry. These cleanings complement your daily brushing and flossing routine at home, effectively removing plaque and tartar buildup, which helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

Fluoride Treatments: Our dental team provides fluoride treatments to make teeth more resistant to plaque and acid attacks. Fluoride also aids in remineralizing teeth, promoting stronger and healthier enamel.

Plaque and Tartar Removal: Even with diligent brushing and flossing, it is impossible to remove tartar buildup on your own. Our hygienists are skilled in removing plaque and tartar, a vital step in preventing gum disease and maintaining optimal oral health.

Dental Fillings: When tooth decay has caused damage, dental fillings are an effective way to restore the tooth’s shape and function. Our skilled dentists use advanced techniques and materials to provide durable and aesthetically pleasing restorations.

Cancer Screenings: Early detection is key in successfully treating oral cancer. Our dental office offers routine oral cancer screenings, which have been shown to increase the survival rate to 80% or better. This simple test can save lives.


What to Expect at Your Routine Checkup: When you visit The Dental Office At Chestnut Hill for a routine checkup, our dentist will ensure a personalized and comprehensive examination. They will take the time to discuss your oral history, address any concerns or questions you may have, and provide guidance for maintaining good oral hygiene. During the examination, the dentist will carefully evaluate your teeth and gums, conduct necessary X-rays, and check for any signs of weakened enamel, loose fillings, or early signs of gum disease.
