Dentistry in Plantation & Fort Lauderdale, FL
Top Dental Care from a Team of Oral Specialists
Comfort Dentists in Fort Lauderdale is a group of General Dentists, Dental Specialists, and Dental Anesthesiologists who are dedicated to achieving lifelong oral health for all their patients, from toddlers to centenarians - and everyone in between. With our support team of caring and compassionate professionals, we practice together in one convenient location in Plantation, Florida, part of Greater Fort Lauderdale in Broward County.
We believe strongly in preventive care through regular checkups, cleanings, and x-rays complimented by a dedicated home care program of brushing and flossing. Early diagnosis is key to preventing more serious - and expensive - problems later on. Also, dental science has proved conclusively that your oral health is directly linked to your overall wellbeing: this is just one reason why at every regular appointment we make sure to thoroughly check for any sign of periodontitis (gum disease) and early signs of oral cancer.
Millions of Americans avoid even regular dental care because of dental anxieties. The Comfort Dentists are specially trained and certified to provide safe and soothing Sleep Dentistry and Sedation Dentistry to our patients young and old, including those with special needs, those with Alzheimer’s (or other forms of dementia) or any other condition where the patient might benefit from the relaxing effects of sleep or sedation dentistry.
It is our mission to provide safe, trustworthy, state-of-the-art, comfortable dentistry to our patients. Everything we do, we do to achieve this goal.
It would be our honor to welcome you to our practice so that you may experience dentistry at its best.
