Prevention

Dentistry is proud to be widely recognized as a pioneering preventive specialty of health care. The dentists and entire team at Cambridge Pediatric Dental Associates are appreciative of our unique opportunity to be preventively focused in the care of each young patient during their journey to adulthood.



At CPDA the dental home becomes the foundation to build a lifetime of optimal oral health which is integral to overall health and wellbeing. Our preventive efforts center upon continuous regularly recurring opportunities to reevaluate each patient beginning ideally by one year of age. At each encounter we are able to monitor growth and dental development, reassess each child’s unique risk factors and customize preventive efforts. Repetitive exposure to regular dental visits help young patients become comfortable and trusting in the dental setting.



The elements of preventive services include oral hygiene training and motivation, fluoride exposure, dental sealants, dietary and oral habit counseling, optimal timing of orthodontic intervention and early detection of unfavorable oral conditions. A six month interval between regularly scheduled check-up visits is generally ideal. The dentists at CPDA are experts in determining when a different interval may be better. Prevention is most effective when it is individualized and built upon trust and cooperation between our team, each child and every family.

If you have any questions about the preventive services we offer or want to schedule an appointment, feel free to contact us at our Cambridge pediatric dental office.
