Good oral health is our goal. This can be accomplished with regular professional dental visits. Teeth that are comfortable when you eat and chew and gums that are pink and do not bleed are signs of a healthy mouth. If you experience pain on chewing or gums that bleed or are swollen, you may have gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Many people do not know they have periodontal disease.
As part of our oral hygiene program, we will measure the amount of tissue and bone loss you may have and review x-rays and other measurements to determine the type of cleaning you need. It may be only a 6 month cleaning appointment or you may need to come back for a more thorough deep cleaning.
- Good Oral Hygiene results from a consistent practice of brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash
- Using all three daily helps prevent plaque buildup, gum disease, and bad breath
- Bushing your teeth should take at least two minutes and be done twice a day
- This video provides the proper ways to brush, floss and use mouthwash

My wife and I have been going to Dr. Bennett for over four years now. We both have the highest respect for her and her staff. I have had some very extensive dental work, including an implant and have been more than satisfied. We would both recommend her as a professional and a kind caring person.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bennett’s for over 10 years. When I first met Dr. Bennett, my teeth were struggling. Over subsequent years she has restored my teeth to an earlier conditioning status. Her expertise has only been surpassed by her gentleness and her integrity. I have happily recommended Dr. Bennett to other friends and family because she has always been a wonderful and thoughtful person and professional.
Dr. Bennett has cared for me and my family for several years. She and her staff are part of our health routine. We are seen for what’s needed, on time, in pleasant surroundings, by people who are well trained. Even an appointment for the dreaded filling is friendly, painless, and positive.
Dr. Bennett herself is an artist. She has saved some of my teeth, worked on long ago and failing, with great crowns and perfect color matching.
I would like to say “thank you” to Dr. Bennett and Staff for always being there for me – for my regular check ups and cleanings – for “fixing” my teeth (cavities and crowns) and always being gentle and caring for my needs and comfort. Dr Bennett has been my Dentist from the time that I moved here from Sherwood, Oregon. And, I have been very fortunate to have found her.
One of the hardest things about moving is needing to find a new dentist. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. Bennett five years ago. The office atmosphere is so calm and friendly. Dr. Bennett is so thorough in her exams, suggestions for preventions and craftsmanship that we feel very secure in our dental health.
