Hygiene Care

Dentist - Teeth Cleaning and Dental Hygiene by Dr. Whitmore in Plano TX

Scientific researchers from Harvard and the National Institutes of Health draw clear connections between your dental hygiene and your overall physical health. In fact, gum disease, which up to 80 percent of us has, is linked to increased risk of: 

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Several Types of Cancer including Pancreatic, Esophageal, and Oral 

This is why Dr. Whitmore provides you with a holistic approach to dental hygiene. Before any hygiene care begins, Dr. Whitmore reviews your medical and dental health history. We make time to talk with you and learn about areas of concern, needs for better health, and desires for improvement. 

When it is time for your cleaning visits, and other dental hygiene care needs, you can rest assured that you are working with an exceptional hygiene professional. You get state-of-the-art dental care, from a gentle professional who you will consistently see at every visit. 

To learn more about our holistic approach to dental hygiene, please call Janet, our patient care coordinator to schedule your next visit at 877-77-WHITMORE (877-779-4486).

Whitmore Dental is a mercury-free dental practice with a focus on what is best for each individual patient. Dental hygiene care varies from person to person, and we look at each of our patients’ health needs separately. During your dental check-up, we look for signs of gum disease and oral cancer, and anything else that could develop into something more serious down the road.

Oral Cancer

Screening for oral cancer is part of your regular checkup at Whitmore Dental. All members of our clinical care team are expertly trained to recognize the signs of oral cancer, and will address any concerns and questions you may have about this issue. While the best way to avoid oral cancer is to minimize risks, if you are worried about possible symptoms between your bi-annual dental visits, you may schedule an appointment for an examination.

Knowing how to brush and floss regularly and effectively is important, but having your teeth professionally cleaned and your mouth and jaw examined by Dr. Whitmore is just as vital. He and the expert dental team can give you advice and pointers about how to maximize your at-home routine.

If you need to schedule a dental hygiene to check up and are in the Plano, Texas area, contact the experienced team at Whitmore Dental today.
