Education and Prevention

Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, but we’re also concerned about your health. At Healthy Chelsea Dentistry, we’re true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. That’s why we provide thorough checkups by performing oral cancer exams and taking x-rays when necessary.

Infection Control

To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
