Preventive Care


To learn more about preventive care, we invite you to call or visit us today!

Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled. 

At PDX Smile Design our dental hygiene program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored, and manage periodontal disease. We invite you to contact the office of Dr. Dontsova and Dr. Khlevnoy to schedule your next appointment with our caring dentist and to learn more about our preventive care in Portland, OR. We look forward to meeting you and caring for your smile!

The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to prevent these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful.

There are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Our doctor recommends that you follow these guidelines to help minimize your chances of developing cavities:

  •  Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
  •  Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
  •  Visit our office at least twice a year for routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
  •  Ask your doctor about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.


We offer the best to our patients. The highest standards of work are our must!
