Patient Education

At Minneapolis Dental, our mission is to assist you to preserve and improve your dental health.  We don’t only address oral diseases or dental conditions which require repair.  Rather, we are focused on preventing such unpleasant situations from ever occurring in the first place.

The key to preventive care is patient education.  Patients who know what can cause tooth decay or oral disease, and who know what actions to take to preserve their teeth, are much less likely to develop severe dental conditions requiring extensive treatment.

In addition, knowing the techniques for brushing and flossing as well as learning the process by which gum disease develops can lead to greater confidence in one’s future dental health by removing fear and uncertainty.

If there is anything you have a question about or don’t understand regarding your personal dental hygiene, please don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Hodd, Dr. Wu, or one of her assistants during your next visit.
