Not only do biannual dental checkups reduce plaque and tartar buildup, but they also allow Dr. Rasmussen to examine the soft tissues of the mouth to ensure there are no other existing oral health concerns. Regular check-ups enable him to examine teeth for weak spots where potential cavities may appear. His first priority is prevention, followed only with a procedure as a last option.

Prevention before procedure:

At Vashon Dental, teeth cleanings and exams are two of the essential procedures Dr. Leif Rasmussen performs. He encourages everyone to schedule biannual checkups to help them maintain good oral health. Brushing your teeth regularly and scheduling biannual cleanings can prevent plaque and tartar from damaging the teeth permanently.

“Dr. Rasmussen is friendly, professional, and has a great staff. Highly recommended.”
