Patient Education

Although many people assume that professional dental care is the sole key to oral health, the best dental health is a team effort between dentists and our patients. While it is true that modern dentistry and periodontics offer significant benefits, we rely on you to comply with aftercare instructions and abide by a daily oral healthcare regimen to keep your teeth in tip-top shape.

To make it easier for patients to learn about dental conditions, proper procedures, and all of the latest and greatest technologies helping to shape the world of dentistry, Dr. Silberg has created this online education center for his patients. These articles include great information that can help you to understand your current or potential conditions, understand dental dangers, and become familiar with the procedures we offer.

Dr. Silberg has dedicated his career both to expanding his own education and sharing his knowledge with others. If you have questions about any of these topics, contact us today.
