Family Dentistry

Family Dentistry

As the foundation of North Tahoe Dental, we provide family dentistry to all ages in both our Truckee CA and Tahoe City CA dental offices.

Regular Dental Visits

Our general dentistry focuses on maintaining healthy teeth and gums as the foundation of your oral health. We recommend a visit twice a year for thorough exams and professional teeth cleaning; more frequently if you are working to manage any gum disease. During these routine visits, we will be doing a comprehensive dental exam that screens for:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Gum Disease
  • Oral Cancer
  • TMJ Disorders/ Bite Analysis

Regular dental screenings and visits can catch early indicators of developing oral health concerns.

Young Dental Patients

Children should be seen around the 2 year mark.  Depending on behavior, we may simply do a quick look/happy visit or we might actually be able to do a very light teeth cleaning.  For kids (and any adults experiencing dental anxiety) we will do a lot of explaining using visual aids before we start any dental cleaning and/or procedures.

Elderly Patients

We also enjoy working with older patients. Many senior patients have advanced dental needs and we work with them, as well as their caregivers, to create the best dental plan for their stage of life.
