At Premier Family Dental, we focus on comprehensive, conservative, preventive dental care. Comprehensive means we keep the optimal function of total oral health in mind when determining treatment. Conservative treatment retains as much natural dentition as possible, and preventive dentistry looks to stop oral health concerns before they start. One of the biggest contributors to preventive care happens outside our dental practice. Our team cleans and examines your teeth two days a year, but the remaining 363 days are all up to you. That’s why we offer guidance to maximize the benefits of your at-home care routine. Possibly the most essential aspect of oral hygiene is tooth brushing. The dentist 76712 residents rely on offers answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about toothbrushes. Call our Waco dentist to find out more or to schedule your appointment today.

We have tons of responsibilities in parenting, and in the midst of it all, other things can slip by. For example, your child’s teeth — when was the last time he or she visited the dentist? And are you sure they’re getting brushed (and flossed!) properly, two times a day? These may seem like minor details in the midst of everything else going on, but your Waco dentist is here to remind you that your child’s oral health should be one of your top priorities.
