Dental Services

At Community Health of South Florida Inc. (CHI), you are our priority. Our dentists, hygienists and support staff are among the best and brightest. They are highly trained and compassionate, always listening to your dental needs and making them a reality.

 

 

We offer an extensive array of dental services at most of our locations to give you the polished, beautiful smile you deserve. Services include an initial exam and diagnosis, preventative care, restoration, surgery, prosthetics, and more. Our dentists accept most insurances, but if you don’t have dental insurance, CHI can help enroll you in a plan or offer a sliding fee payment scale based on your income.

 

 

In the wake of COVID-19, we have also gone above and beyond most dental practices and put in place high-tech innovative devices and strategies, known as our SafeCareProcedures, to combat the virus.

 

 

This plan includes the following measures:

  • All dentists and hygienists wear personal protective equipment (PPE) that they must remove and replace with clean ones before seeing a new patient.
  • Once a patient arrives for an appointment, they will be asked to wash their mouths with a pre-procedural rinse before treatment to reduce any bacteria in the saliva.
  • All dentists use rubber dams over a patient’s mouth for all procedures to limit the spray of secretions.
  • Our dental services utilize three high-volume suction procedures that create a dry and clean environment improving the quality of its operatories.
  • After every appointment, fogging is performed. Staff spray a safe-to-breathe disinfectant on all interior surfaces and providers in the cleaning process to ensure germs and viruses are eliminated.

 

More about our services:

Comprehensive Examination will evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene on your first visit. This will include examination of your oral cavity, head and neck region, the condition of your gums, the need for tooth restoration or replacement of existing restorations.

Limited Evaluation is concentrated on a specific or problem focus area.

Periodontal Examination involves checking the gums and the supporting structures of the teeth. If periodontal disease is present, the dentist will inform you of treatment options.

Digital X-rays are used to diagnose cavities or other oral health problems that cannot be seen in a clinical examination.

Oral Cancer Screening exam looks for signs of oral cancer.

Oral HIV Screening is a quick 20-minute test done by swabbing the oral cavity.

Emergency Dental Care may be necessary as a result of an acute infection or traumatic injury to the teeth.

Preventive Dentistry: The goal of preventive dentistry is to achieve and maintain optimum oral health. The primary emphasis is to prevent dental decay and periodontal disease.

Prophylaxis is a professional cleaning. This routine cleaning is given to a patient whose gums are in normal condition with no periodontal disease present. It includes the removal of plaque and tarter from the crowns of teeth above the gum lines. The teeth are then polished to remove plaque and stains.

Fluoride Treatment is a mineral used in dentistry to reduce cavities by 65%. There are two forms of fluorides: topical and systematic. Topicals are applied directly to the tooth enamel, and systematic fluorides are taken by mouth, fluoridated water, and dietary fluoride supplements.

Sealants are preventative dental treatments. They are thin plastic coatings placed on the pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of primary and permanent molars. The sealant is painted onto the enamel where it bonds directly onto the tooth and hardens. It acts as a barrier to protecting enamel from plaque and acids, preventing cavities.

– Our mobile dental unit visits schools, summer camps and other childcare facilities to provide dental services under the “Preventive Oral Health Services Program.”
