Tooth Watch: Early Detection
Why Early Detection is so Important
Wouldn’t you say that the best dental treatment is the one you never had to undergo in the first place—because it was caught and corrected in time? We sure would!
We’re always on the lookout for a potential problem that can be avoided. That’s why during any checkup, we specialize in early detection to let you know about any problem areas we might see, and are of course happy to demonstrate proper brushing/flossing techniques anytime. Often, you can avoid future chair time with just a little TLC.
There’s another good reason for regular dental appointments. Your mouth is a sort of distant early warning system of all sorts of things going on: in your teeth, gums, soft tissue—even parts of your body far from the oral cavity. Early detection means we have a head start on the cure.

I grew up in Valparaiso, IN before attending Indiana University Bloomington. I then attended dental school at the Indiana University School of Dentistry. After graduating, I moved to North Carolina with my wife, Amber, where she would complete a medical residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While obtaining my license in North Carolina, I worked in a safety net clinic for the underserved in Roxboro and Yanceyville, NC. I practiced there for five years, gaining valuable experience as a clinician and serving as the dental director in my final year. For the next five years, I treated patients in private practice in Cary, NC, becoming proficient in performing the latest dental procedures. My wife and I are the proud parents of two girls: Audriana and Genevieve. We also have a Weimaraner named Lulu, who ensures there is never a dull moment around the house!
