A Philosophy of Prevention
While many only see the dentist when they know something is wrong, we believe preventative dentistry is the best way to keep your mouth healthy throughout your life.
Many dental problems can develop and worsen without you knowing about it. By catching tooth decay or gum disease early, you can maintain your health with just a simple procedure instead of a more involved restorative treatment plan. Cleanings twice a year and comprehensive examinations with Dr. Marquez are essential for maintaining your oral health.
Our family dental practice offers a wide variety of the services that we find to be the most frequently required and useful.
Join Our Family on Your First Visit
At Waterside Dental in Port Charlotte, our patients are treated like members of our family.
Oral Cancer ScreeningWe use the latest non-invasive methods to search for pre-cancerous and cancerous cells in your mouth, since oral cancers may not show any visible symptoms in their earliest stages.
Digital X-RaysOur low-radiation digital x-ray machine allows us to get a clearer picture of what is happening to your soft and hard tissues. Unless you have very recent images from another medical provider, we usually take x-rays during the initial appointment.
Dental Check-Up and CleaningWe will completely evaluate and clean your teeth at your appointment. Please let us know if you have any known conditions or dental fears so we can make your experience more pleasant and relaxing.
Customized Dental PlanA discussion of your first visit with Dr. Marquez will end with a customized dental plan recommendation. This plan is personalized to fit your needs, and may include further interventions outside of routine six-month check-ups, such as periodontal disease cleanings.
