General Dentistry

Dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body. Dental practices that focus on General Dentistry, like Dr. Churchman, provide services that keep teeth and gums healthly through ongoing observation, maintenance and oral hygiene support.

Oral Hygiene

Dental Hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy, as by regular brushing and flossing and preventive dental care. Dental hygienists clean teeth, examine patients for signs of oral diseases such as gingivitis, and provide other preventive dental care. Our caring dental hygienists work closely with Dr. Churchman to inform and educate patients on ways to improve and maintain good oral health.
