Today’s families are busier than ever, and making sure that everyone sees the dentist twice per year can be a challenge!
At Infinity Dental of Fox Lake, Dr. Tom Prendergast and Dr. Caroline Shepherd offer preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry to ALL members of the family. Parents enjoy the convenience of having everyone seen by the same practice and children benefit from learning the value of good oral hygiene when visiting the dentist alongside their parent or caregiver!
Preventive care is the foundation of long term dental health and starting early is important for establishing life-long routines that will maintain optimal oral health. Recent studies have shown the connection between our dental health and overall health: poor dental health is linked to cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes. In other words, a healthy smile can affect our overall well being. Routine visits to Infinity Dental give Drs. Prendergast and Shepherd the chance to spot possible oral health problems in their early stages, when conservative treatment is most effective.
Routine care at Infinity will include:
- Diagnostic x-rays
- Oral cancer screening
- Periodontal screening (for gum disease)
- Dental caries (cavities) screening
- Cleaning ( in absence of gum disease )
- One-on-one meeting with dentist to discus concerns and goals
It is important for children to begin routine dental care around the age of 3- children are as susceptible to developing cavities and tooth decay as adults! These visits also enable the staff at Infinity Dental to educate their young patients about proper brushing and flossing techniques so that they can continue to maintain their oral health at home between visits.
Dr. Prendergast and Dr. Shepherd understand that today’s families need flexibility and they offer both evening and weekend appointments to accommodate busy schedules! Infinity Dental can be YOUR family dentist. Contact Infinity Dental in Fox Lake and schedule an appointment today.
