Friendly, comfortable and knowledgeable care

At Brush and Floss Dental Center, our friendly and knowledgeable doctors and staff want you to be comfortable while receiving your dental services. We provide high quality, state-of-the-art dental care, with personal attention to your needs and comfort level.

Healthy teeth for a lifetime

Our conservative philosophy regarding oral health is supported by our biomimetic approach of doing all we can to preserve your natural teeth. Our goal is for you to have optimum oral health for a lifetime. This includes using materials and procedures that most mimic the natural properties of your teeth. This approach also eliminates or greatly reduces toxic elements in the body.

New Patient Exam

When you arrive at our office, our friendly receptionist will greet you and provide you with the necessary forms to fill out. You will then be taken to an operatory to meet the doctor and determine what issues may be present and what diagnostics will be needed. As every patient is unique, we tailor your treatment options to your specific dental needs.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays are fast and accurate and emit far less radiation than conventional X-rays.

Our digital X-rays provide accurate images with much lower exposure to radiation than traditional X-rays. Based on the interview with the doctor, the appropriate diagnostics will be done.

Comprehensive exam

Once the diagnostics are complete, the doctor will review them as well as conduct a thorough exam to look for any signs of tooth decay or other issues.

TMJ evaluation

How your teeth come together when biting and chewing is important, and a misalignment can negatively affect your health and cause pain or discomfort. Sometimes your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is the cause of the misalignment. The doctor will assess your bite for any alignment issues.

Oral cancer screening

The doctor will go over your X-rays with you during our very thorough exam.

This simple exam can reveal early signs of oral cancer and, If in fact present, catching it early can mean much simpler treatment to handle it.

Gum health evaluation

Healthy gums are crucial to dental health. Your gums will be examined for any signs of inflammation or disease.

Written treatment plan

You will receive a written treatment plan clearly outlining what needs to be done to make sure your mouth will be as healthy as possible. We know how important a budget is when it comes to dental treatment, and we always keep this in mind when showing you your best treatment options.

New Patient Special Offer

We are pleased to offer our New Patient Special, which is a comprehensive dental exam including oral cancer screening, panoramic dental X-rays and four bite wing X-rays for only $79 (for uninsured patients). The normal price of this very thorough exam is $365.

Your regular checkups include all the same steps listed above in our New Patient Exam.
