Preventive Dental Services for all Ages

At Provo Family Dentistry, we believe in the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and, thus, the focus on preventive dental care and treatment is paramount with us. We want to help you avoid unnecessary treatments and maintain long-term oral health.

You can count on us for:

Regular exams and cleanings

A deep, professional cleaning twice a year is an ideal addition to your preventive dental care routine. During your visit, Dr. Braithwaite can look for signs of decay, gum disease, oral cancers or other problems while we remove any plaque or tartar that has built up on your teeth. You will leave here with that “new teeth” feeling every time!

Dental x-rays

Dr. Braithwaite’s exams are thorough but there are still things he cannot see without the help of technology. Our safe x-ray procedures allow him to check the health of your entire mouth, including areas below or under the gum lines. If early problems are found, they can be treated before they become more serious or painful for you.


Flouride toothpastes and supplies in water sources are great ways to provide daily defense against decay for your teeth. Our professional Flouride treatment with your bi-annual exam is a great adjunct to that. We can also monitor your child’s need for Flouride supplements from infancy through the teen years.


Sealants are clear, undetectable ways of filling the small grooves in teeth where 75% of decay typically starts. By filling these grooves, the new surface is easier to clean, dramatically reducing the chance for cavities to take hold. This can be especially helpful for children who may not always brush as thoroughly as needed.

Our team of professionals is committed to being your partner in your dental health. The importance of your preventive care is part of what makes us among the best family dentists in Provo, Utah.

Our Commitment to You

Your comfort and satisfaction matters to us as much as your dental health does. We want our patients to feel welcome and at ease in our office and will always greet you with a smile. We also work hard to reduce any discomfort during care and make visiting us as simple as possible.
