Preventive Care Dental Service in NJ

Prevention is an essential aspect of your oral health. By practicing good oral health habits and visiting your dentist regularly, you can reduce the potential for decay, disease and damage to your precious smile. Preventive care includes things such as cleanings and exams, as these types of treatments help to catch issues early on and prevent larger issues later. Preventive dentistry can be overlooked by patients or seen as unnecessary. However, we caution against waiting until a problem arises to visit the dentist. It is far easier to maintain a healthy smile than restore one after years of neglect. You can avoid spending extensive time and money if you invest in preventive care early and often!

We’ll help you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile with these preventive services:

Dental cleanings – Routine cleanings are necessary to have a healthy smile and ensure that your teeth, gums and mouth are being maintained thoroughly.

Regular examinations – We will examine your teeth, gums and mouth to check for any abnormalities, signs of oral cancer, cavities and more.

Patient education – Our doctors deeply value education and seek to empower patients by sharing their knowledge. They will help you to establish at-home oral health care routines that will keep your smile healthy in between visits.

Dental sealants – Dental sealants are used to protect teeth and prevent cavities.

Oxyfresh breath treatments (fresh breath treatment) – If you suffer from bad breath, we offer easy treatments that can help resolve this issue.

Mouthguards for athletes – Mouthguards help you to protect your smile while you play sports.

I love coming to South Orange Dental Center. I’ve been a patient at the office for over 10 years. Drs. Rosemond and Strachan are excellent dentists! They are genuine, personable, attentive, easy to talk to and provide great quality work. They have a gentle touch, are always happy to answer any questions you have and they take their time with you. I also enjoy my visits with their Hygenist Simonette. She is detailed and truly cares about providing quality work as well. The staff is always friendly making all of my visits delightful. I highly recommend them!

My girls have been coming for the past 4 years. A pleasant experience every time. One daughter is currently 5 and the other 11. My youngest started as a nervous child because of a previous experience at another dental center. Now she walks in calmly and tells Dr. Strachan and her staff of any ailments or even her baller performance. The stickers, balloons and goodie bags are also a treat.

My previous dentist retired and he referred his patients to Dr. Rosemond. After my first visit today I felt like I had spent a day at the spa. Dr. Rosemond and staff are absolutely the best! The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Simonette was incredibly helpful, thorough and informative. I have a new outlook on how to maintain a healthy mouth. The high tech equipment allowed me to see every single tooth on the monitor. I was also able to watch television while my mouth was being worked on. I can't say enough about Dr. Rosemond and the staff at the South Orange Dental Center. I have definitely found my new dental home. Thank you!

Beautiful, clean and updated office and dental space. The staff - from reception to dental assistant - are simply amazing! Dr. Strachan is very friendly, informative, and patient. My 4 year old son was calm and happy because of the way they treated him. He even got to wear shades during his teeth cleaning and was a happy boy after. I can't recommend them enough! Awesome, awesome dental practice. You won't regret it!
