We understand the importance of maintaining a healthy smile, and regular dental exams and cleanings are crucial for achieving this goal.

Why Regular Dental Exams & Cleanings Are Important

At Outdoor Dental, we do exams differently. We look at more than your teeth—we do an overall mouth, head, and neck examination, plus a sleep apnea screening.

Regular dental exams and cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. They can help prevent dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. They can also help detect and treat a range of health issues early on.
