Preventative Dentistry Evanston, IL

Prevention is the cornerstone of our dental practice. At our Evanston dentist office we believe that the best method for protecting your smile is to use excellent preventative care. Our kind and caring staff are here to coordinate with you and ensure that your smile and you get the best care possible.


The best preventative care begins at home and continues in the dental office with a routine prophylaxis (dental cleaning). Your hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, take any needed x-rays, take gum measurements, and do a fluoride treatment. The x-rays help our Evanston dentists diagnose tooth decay between teeth and below the gum line, as well as allowing them to look for any bone loss. The gum measurements that your hygienist takes allows our dental staff to evaluate the health of your gums. You can learn more about why we take x-rays and gum measurements in our blog. Based on your current dental care and oral health, your hygienist will discuss in-office and at-home options to help you keep your smile in perfect health.

Our doctors are at the forefront of the dental field. Through continuing education courses, they discover new methods and new treatments to help keep your smile healthy. Both doctors work closely with all of our hygienists to provide the best that dentistry has to offer.

In addition to routine prophylaxis (cleaning), our office offers the following preventative services:
