- Come join our family of happy smiles!
We take your oral health seriously and will always provide you with the most comprehensive analysis of your conditions. This allows you to choose a path for your treatment based on your current needs.
We not only specialize in regular dental exams and cleanings, we also perform smile analysis and a comprehensive evaluation of the face-mouth relationship. Patients that get a comprehensive evaluation receive a full report of our findings.
Both Dr. Molero and Dr. Soto attended the Spears Education Art of Treatment Planning in 2015. This kind of continuing education represents their commitment to a comprehensive approach to better care for our patients' overall health. Our dentists are highly trained in all general dentistry, implant placement, preventive, and restorative treatment.
We also work with specialists both in and outside of the office to address every patient’s oral health needs. We have state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to help us see beyond the obvious, including digital x-rays, CT scan, and intraoral pictures.
Dr. Soto is part of a local elite study club, DEAL (Dental Excellence Advancement and Learning), which focuses on interdisciplinary care and draws on the knowledge of all specialties for effective treatment and planning.
We realize that your oral health needs change throughout your lifetime. Periodic exams provide us with a snapshot of your oral health, and full medical histories alert us to any medical conditions you may be experiencing so that we can match your treatment to your current needs.
Your regular dental cleanings are excellent insurance for your future oral health. The frequency and type of dental cleaning we recommend will depend on what your teeth and gums require.
Routine dental cleanings – Routine dental cleanings that include removal of tartar and bacteria above your gum line help your gums stay healthy. Even if you brush and floss diligently, you cannot reach all areas of your teeth, and tartar will build over time. By removing tartar, we protect your gums and reduce your chances of decay. Each hygiene appointment ends with a polish to remove any surface stains and residual build-up. You will leave our office with a smooth, fresh smile.
Catch-up dental cleanings – If it has been awhile since you had a dental cleaning, we probably have some catching up to do. Our mid-level dental cleaning focuses on removing larger tartar deposits above and below your gum line so that Drs. Molero and Soto can effectively complete an oral evaluation and you can enjoy a healthier smile.
Periodontal dental cleanings – A history of gum disease may mean that you join our periodontal maintenance program. Since a history of gum disease means you are more susceptible to it in the future, we focus on keeping your gums healthy with cleanings designed to prevent a serious recurrence of gum disease.
These cleanings often require visits three to four times per year, depending on your changing oral health needs. People who have diabetes, a history of heart disease, or respiratory illnesses such as COPD or chronic bronchitis should be extra diligent with their dental cleanings as your periodontal health can affect your overall health.
