Stay healthy by preventing dental decay and diseases.
You must get your teeth professionally cleaned every six months to keep your oral health in check. However, gone are the days of listening to your hygienist scrape your teeth with hand tools and enduring unpleasant polishes.
When you partner with us for your dental care, we’ll not only keep your smile in good shape but also your wallet by helping you avoid costly dental procedures.
What Makes Our Oral Hygiene Care Different?
We use the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master for guided biofilm therapy.
It’s the only technology to remove biofilm from your teeth’s surface and inaccessible areas, such as deep pits and fissures, interdental spaces, misaligned areas, below the gumline, etc.
Avoid unnecessary aggressive dental treatments in the future with early detection of white spots and dental caries.
Minimizing the use of power and hand tools keeps your natural teeth looking good long term.
It provides 100% accessibility around orthodontic brackets without needing to remove wires, ligatures, or elastics.
It won’t scratch your expensive investment. It also inhibits stains and discoloration! All-natural PLUS powder is minimally invasive and nonabrasive.
Kids (and adults) love how comfortable, noise-free, and naturally sweet tasting the AIRFLOW® treatment with the PLUS powder is.
‘‘I tell EVERYONE to go here. It’s a truly luxurious experience - from the aesthetic and decor to the Bose headphones and flatscreen TV ceilings! Everyone should come here for their dental cleanings. I can’t believe it’s all completely covered by my insurance. I truly look forward to going to the dentist!’’

Oral Hygiene FAQs
- How often should you go to the dentist for a cleaning?
Why is visiting the dentist important?
Regular dental visits help you:
- Prevent dental problems
- Prevent your oral health from causing or aggravating overall health problems
- Avoid unnecessary dental procedures
- Save money
- Keep your teeth and gums healthy and beautiful
Built-up plaque, tartar, and calculus on your teeth can only be removed by a dental hygienist (brushing and flossing will not remove these). If left untreated, you significantly increase your risk of tooth decay and periodontitis (gum disease), which may lead to overall health issues.
Frequent dental visits also allow Dr. Patel to catch dental problems early on when treatment is more likely to be non-invasive, quick, and less expensive. He’ll also look for signs of overall health issues, like oral cancer, and work with your physician, so you receive proper care.
Are dental cleanings covered by insurance?
Usually, yes! Routine cleanings and exams are considered preventive/essential dental care, and most dental insurance policies cover these at 100% (no additional cost).
Don’t have insurance?
Sign up for our affordable in-house dental savings plan. It includes coverage for routine cleanings, exams, and x-rays! Plus, you’ll receive a 15% discount on other treatments.
