Preventative dentistry is a clinical term that means getting the dental care you need to maintain good oral health. It is a combination of regular dental exams coupled with good oral hygiene habits. Preventative dentistry is important for everyone, both young and old.
Preventive Dentistry Services Available to You
Preventative dentistry is key to having healthy teeth and gums over a lifetime. We have you covered. Our part of preventative dentistry looks like providing services to you that are both preventative and proactive for whatever stage of oral health you are at. We provide oral exams, professional teeth cleaning, and routine x-rays. These services are best utilized every six months. In addition, we educate patients during these exams on how to take care of their teeth and gums.
Your Part of Preventative Dentistry
Your role in preventative dentistry happens at home. Good oral hygiene habits are taught in our office, but they are best executed daily at home. Developing good habits early in life can help to reduce dental problems in the later years. We encourage you to brush your teeth twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Floss your teeth daily as well to remove food lodged between your teeth. Avoid sugary foods and beverages as well as hard foods that could damage your teeth. We advise all our patients to avoid smoking.

We look forward to working alongside you and educating you so that you can have the best oral health possible.

Downtown Seattle Dentist
Summit Dental Care: convenient location in downtown Seattle; strong online website and patient portal (e.g., appointments, dental records); reception staff, hygienist, chairside assistants - competent and professional. Most importantly, there is Summit Dental's Dr. Vu, DDS - a very skilled dental professional who seems to genuinely care about the welfare of his patients. A recent dental crisis/emergency was handled without delay; when a tooth is "making its presence known," one doesn't want to hear, "Let me see if we have any openings..."! Dr. Vu replaced my (now retired) dentist of 20+ years - it has been a wise decision to stay with the practice.

Dentist Downtown Seattle
Dr. Vu is great. He and his staff are all friendly and kind, and I’ve consistently had good experiences at his office. He’s always trying to think of ways to improve patient experience- including offering noise canceling headphones for when you get fillings so you can listen to music or a podcast to distract you from the noise of the drill. Brilliant!

Seattle Family Dentistry
I've been a patient here for 6 years now and Dr. Vu and the team continue to exceed my expectations. They do a great job of listening to you and treat you with the utmost respect. I am so happy here that I keep paying extra for an out-of-Network dental plan. My gum health has improved tremendously and I have reclaimed my smile.
- Michael Z.
Dr. Vu and the team are like family! They treat my dental needs and make me feel right at home. When I had a dental emergency they cleared out time to make sure I was taken care of. I knocked 2 teeth out in a bike accident and you can’t even tell!! They also make a great point to support the LGBTQ+ community!
