Creating Genuine Relationships with Your Family
From the moment you walk through the doors of our practice, you can expect a warm and friendly greeting from our staff. We genuinely appreciate the trust you've placed in us and work to help you feel comfortable and catered to. A crucial component of our family dental care is building a personal relationship with your family. We genuinely enjoy hearing about your dental goals and strive to get to know you and your whole family on a first-name basis.

Compassionate Dental Care for Children
It's vital that parents, with our help, establish the foundation for lifelong good oral health habits during childhood. Our dental practice accomplishes this goal by helping your child form positive associations with dental care from the start. We also spend the time to teach your child how to care for their smile at home, including proper brushing and flossing techniques. With each appointment, we hope to get them more comfortable with visiting our general dentist and give them an understanding of what to expect.
Our dental team has a wealth of experience working with children of all ages, and we know how to explain oral care instructions in a way that resonates with kids. We're more than happy to repeat instructions and work with, not against, your child's one-of-a-kind personality.
Extensive Dentistry for Teens
Teenagers are at an age where they have more independence and responsibilities than ever before, and it can be easy for them to pay less attention to their oral hygiene. Dr. Santana and her experienced team have extensive experience working with adolescents while respecting their decisions and listening to their input.
Just like it is with children, education is a critical component of our care for teenagers. We'll show your teen how to integrate proper at-home oral care into their busy schedule. Our team will handle everything from explaining the importance of flossing to breaking down how long they should spend brushing their teeth.
Comprehensive Dental Services for Adults
Adults have some of the most complex and varied dental needs of any age group. Our dental office provides extensive dental care to meet your adult oral health needs. During your initial appointment, we'll conduct a thorough oral exam that looks at the overall condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbones. From there, we'll work to create a personalized dental plan that addresses your smile's functional and cosmetic needs.
Some of the dental services we offer for adults include:
Family Dentistry FAQs
Our team genuinely enjoys answering our patients' questions. Some of the most frequently asked questions about family dentistry include:
How safe are dental x-rays?
The x-rays that our office uses expose you and your family to very small amounts of radiation and are safe for patients of all ages.
How do I prevent cavities?
To prevent dental decay, you must pair regular dental visits with proper at-home oral care. In addition, we recommend reducing your consumption of sugary food and drinks, which can erode your tooth's enamel and lead to cavities.
How often should my child visit the dentist?
We recommend that your child visit our office twice a year for exams and cleanings. However, depending on the condition of their oral health, we may recommend more frequent visits.
