Preventative Routine Dental Care in Washington DC

Preventative Dental Care, Dental Exams and Cleanings in Washington, DC - L’Enfant DentalWe believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Routine check ups are the best way to prevent complex problems in the future. At your biannual checkups we will do a thorough comprehensive exam. 

Oral Cancer Screenings

Unfortunately, the rates of oral cancer are increasing every year. Early detection is essential in decreasing mortality and morbidity of oral cancers. Biannual oral cancer screenings are performed on every patient free of charge. This allows us to detect and treat anything out of the ordinary. Our patients have peace of mind knowing that their oral health is being closely monitored.


Routine dental cleanings are an integral part of achieving oral health success. Without frequent professional cleanings, the health of our gums and teeth can deteriorate rapidly resulting in both oral disease, as well as, disease in other parts of your body. We encourage all patients to visit L’Enfant Dental at least every 6 months for a checkup and cleaning.

Fluoride Treatment

Used as a topical agent, fluoride can remineralize areas of teeth that have begun to decay and prevent further progression of disease. Fluoride is present in toothpaste and can be applied in higher dosages in a varnish at the office.
