A Healthy Mouth For Adults

Glen Valley Dentistry has taken on a new level of responsibility to our patients.

The majority of the population does not know the definition of what a truly healthy mouth is, so our office established this baseline for health. (below) As you look at the columns below, if any of these conditions apply to your mouth, understand it is not at the level of health it could be. We desire to team together with you to help achieve total oral health which will contribute to improved overall health.

If you are not currently a patient of Glen Valley please contact us for a free consultation so we can assist you in your pursuit for overall health.
