At Iowa Center for Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we strongly feel that prevention is the key to a healthy, beautiful smile. Dr. Thomas and his team take the time to educate their patients on proper oral hygiene to prevent cavities and periodontal (gum) disease. With routine dental check-ups and cleaning and diligent at-home dental care, your whole family can have a healthy smile. With routine dental check-ups we can catch small problems with your teeth and gums and treat them before they become big problems. When most dental issues are addressed early, they are much easier and less costly to treat.
