Preventative Care

“The best offense is a good defense.” At Dr. Mike’s office, we take this sentiment to heart.

Preventative Care


To have that beautiful smile and keep it for decades, beginning with a strong, solid preventative care plan is absolutely necessary. Come into our Akron office and we will tell you all you need to know, from exams to x-rays and oral cancer screenings to added protection.

We are a family dentistry practice, so we believe the best care starts early. We want your children to be part of our family from day one. Primary teeth are important for several reasons. Most importantly, healthy teeth allow a child to eat and maintain good nutrition, as well as allow for clear pronunciation and speech habits. Primary teeth also guide eruption of the permanent teeth, so x-rays and consistent exams are a must to ensure the best placement.

The teeth, bones and soft tissue of the mouth require a healthy, well-balanced diet. A variety of foods from the five food groups will help children minimize, or even avoid, cavities and other dental problems. We will also focus on brushing and flossing habits, so that children will have an example to follow and the pride to continue at home.

A leading dental care practice in Akron, our office is committed to offering quality dental care with a dedication to excellence and patient education through communication in a caring environment. We know that most preventative care happens at home and want to provide the best possible resources to help you.

From common problems to gum disease, we provide an array of preventative care services to meet your needs, all in one convenient location. Using the latest technology, our experienced staff will work together as a team to give you exceptional quality treatment from the time you walk in for your initial visit.
