What’s the most important aspect of dentistry: aesthetics or restoration? Actually, it’s neither one. Dr. Samantha Amaro, your dentist in Scarborough, ON, says it’s preventive dentistry–those habits such as brushing, flossing and eating right. And, it includes 6-month examinations and hygienic cleanings at White Willow Family & Cosmetic Dentistry because a smile that’s maintained needs less restorative work, such as fillings and crowns.

At White Willow Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer our littlest patients oral health care that grows with their smiles beginning with these early childhood dental wellness checks.

Over the past several decades, dentistry and general healthcare have undertaken a shift in priority. In the past, dentists and physicians emphasized treating problems after they occurred, but today, the focus is on preventive care to maintain optimal oral and whole body health. Years of research, training, and experience have shown it’s easier to stop a problem from happening than it is to correct damage after the fact. It’s no surprise that orthodontists have come to the same conclusion. For this reason, more young people than ever are receiving early orthodontic intervention to allow permanent teeth to develop in ideal alignment rather than shifting already developed smiles.

When I was approached by my lawyer, Michael Carabash at DMC Law, to go on a mission trip to Jamaica I was absolutely thrilled. I have always wanted to get involved in a charity dental organization but never knew where to start. Now I had the opportunity to give back and travel to a beautiful place at the same time.
Before getting to Jamaica there was quite some planning involved. Our group had to send over supplies and tooth brushes ahead so that we would have that ready for when we arrived. I had a lot of help from our supplier Patterson Dental, who donated anesthetic, needles, masks and gloves, to name a few. Over 200 toothbrushes were also sent down on behalf of White Willow Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.

The choice you make does matter, but it’s really not that difficult. Read below to find out what type of toothpaste is best for your unique mouth.
