A Commitment to Patient Education & Preventive Care


The best preventative care and oral health comes from educating patients on what these mean. The more our patients know about the health of their teeth the better they are able to take care of them. They are also better able to make decisions on procedures they might, or might not need. Patients should feel free to ask our dentists and staff any dental questions they may have.

Patient education goes hand in hand with preventative care. We arm patients with the tools needed to best maintain their teeth and overall oral health. This helps prevent issues that can occur between checkups and helps avoid more extensive dental procedures down the road.


WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING:
As a patient, three things stand out to me about Cooley Smiles - the great quality dental work, the cleanliness of the facility and thorough follow up. These are major differentiators that I look for in dental providers and to-date, I've always been satisfied with my experience. Thanks for the great patient care, Cooley Smiles team!
