It starts with you
At the St. Louis Dental Center, prevention is integral to the way we operate. Our faculty and dental students want to keep you smiling! Prevention includes steps you can take at home, as well as cleanings, exams, and regular check-up visits with our dental team. We are your partner in ensuring your oral health.

Checkups and cleanings

Regular dental visits help maintain proper oral health, and let us correct little problems before they get big. Your first visit to the St. Louis Dental Center will include comprehensive exam to gather the necessary information to advise you of your treatment needs. Subsequent visits might include a completion of the comprehensive exam, specialty consultations, formal treatment plan presentation, and other restorative and preventive care. Fees for our services are approximately one half of the fees charged by a typical private practice located in the St. Louis area.

Daily home care

Proper oral health begins at home and the goal is to remove plaque from your teeth. Plaque causes tooth decay and gum disease. The ADA recommends brushing twice daily with an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste. Clean between your teeth each day with floss or an inter-dental cleaner to remove decay-causing bacteria toothbrush bristles can't reach.
