Dental Cleaning & Exam
A vital part of your oral hygiene routine.
Take Control of Your Health
Starting with the most essential dental care!
At Harmony Dental, we truly care about you and want to help you live a longer and happier life. That’s why we focus on your whole-body health, not just teeth.
Two fundamentals for a healthy smile and body are professional dental cleanings and exams.
These preventive services help you:
Dr. Bruno da Costa and his hygienists offer gentle, comfortable, and thorough dental cleanings and exams. We’ll go over what to expect and share our findings, so you’re always a step ahead.
Keep Your Teeth White & Sparkly
Cleanings and exams cost a lot less than fillings, root canals, and crowns. Plus, most dental insurance plans cover these services at 100%.
Significantly reduce your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, tooth loss, damaged restorations, fractures, and more.
Keep your oral health from causing or aggravating overall health issues, such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and even COVID-19.
Cleanings are generally quick, easy, and noninvasive. We’ll go at your pace and help you overcome any nerves or fear.
