Cleaning and Prevention
Regular examinations, cleaning by a professional hygienist, and practicing good dental habits at home are the keys to keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
Preventive dentistry is important for people of all ages: infants, children, teens, adults and seniors.
The Oxford Smile Center provides our patients and every family member with dental health care that focuses on prevention. We do this by scheduling regular examinations that include digital dental x-rays, computerized charting, oral cancer screening, professional cleaning, and expert consultation.
If you do develop a cavity or have other dental issues, Dr. Khoury will provide you with all of the options available to you and will recommend the procedure that will provide you with the most benefits.
In addition to examinations, we provide our patients with the educational tools they need to take the best care of their teeth and gums on a daily basis at home. Here are a couple of places to learn more about caring for your dental health:

Finally, we educate families about the risks of injuries to teeth that happen all too often during sporting events. We encourage each athlete in your family to schedule an appointment to have a custom mouth guard created. Any injury that can be prevented should be prevented.
