A healthy smile starts with good oral hygiene and preventative dentistry. With the right information and techniques, our Menlo Park patients can avoid unwanted problems in the future, like dental emergencies or missing teeth.
Dr. Scott Hoffman’s team provides comprehensive prophylactic services and techniques to help you take control of dental health, not only for you, but for your entire family.
Comprehensive Exams and X-Rays
As Dr. Hoffman thoroughly examines your bite, he will assess for areas of wear, changes in your restorations, and screen for conditions like oral cancer and early tooth decay.
Early intervention with periodic preventative dentistry is always the best key to extending the life of your smile.
Prophylactic Teeth Cleanings
Even if you brush and floss daily, there are usually areas of plaque and tartar buildup hidden in hard-to-reach parts of your mouth. Our hygienists will gently clean your teeth and polish away stains, so that your smile can stay bright and your breath fresh.
Gum Disease Therapy
Gum disease is directly linked with health conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Its severity is associated with everything from immunity to your reproductive system. Periodontitis is also the number one cause of adult tooth loss.
During your exam, we will carefully screen for signs of gum and bone loss to intervene as early as possible. Our hygienists will provide you with essential oral hygiene information that can help reduce the spread of infection.
Did you know that we schedule appointments for the whole family? This means that your loved ones can experience the same level of care as you, from the expert team you know and trust. We keep families healthy by providing comprehensive preventive dentistry solutions including cleanings, sealants, mineral treatments, and fillings.

Schedule Your Family's Visit
Most of our healthy patients benefit from a preventive cleaning and exam every six months. If you’ve recently been treated for gum disease, you may need to be seen more frequently.
