In order to maintain the best oral health possible, we highly recommend comprehensive dental exams. (The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist at least two (2) times a year.)

Regular exams are vital to assesses possible problems such as gum disease, cavity development, oral cancer and replacing worn out dental work such as metal fillings and discolored crowns. In addition, dental health has also been directly linked to overall health. Many dental issues are not only responsible for acute pain in the mouth area, but have been linked with more serious conditions such as heart disease, strokes, autoimmune conditions, or even premature birth.

Detecting problems early on will prevent much bigger challenges from developing down the road ~ saving you both time and money.

It is a pleasure to go to Dr. Fader's office. Everyone is so personable and friendly and it has always been a wonderful experience for me and my husband. We feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Fader when we moved to the area.Read More Testimonials >
