Preventative Dentistry

Exam/Cleaning/X-Rays

xrayA typical first visit at Goodman’s Gilbert Family Dentistry offices will consist of a complete set of X-Rays, and a comprehensive exam. In the areas around Gilbert and Queen Creek, family dentistry – the total care for all of your family’s dentistry needs – is what we look to do first. We are dedicated to giving you the best dental care possible. During a patient exam the doctor not only checks the health of the teeth and gums, but also the health of surrounding structures of the oral cavity. For a patient with healthy gum support, we normally recommend a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums by our licensed hygienist at least once every six months. With Gilbert and Queen Creek smiles, many have Goodman Dental Center to thank.


Gum Disease Treatment

toothdiagram-150x150Our dental hygienists are licensed and proficient in periodontal treatment. If you are a patient with a need for periodontal care, feel assured that you will get the best continuing care available in the dental industry. Gum disease is an infection that can spread to other parts of the body. Gum disease is usually painless until it is in an advanced stage. We use all the updated treatments for your specific needs.


Oral Cancer Screening

At the Goodman Dental Center we provide you with an Oral Cancer Screening Exam for early
detection of cancerous & pre-cancerous lesions. The earlier these lesions are detected, the greater the
chances of successful prevention, treatment and recovery.

Symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • Red and /or white patches in the mouth
  • Any sore that does not heal within 14 days
  • Persistent hoarseness
