At CLDC our approach to prevention involves obtaining a detailed general and dental health history, including lifestyle, diet and stress factors etc. specifically geared to help determine your personal risk of developing tooth decay. We no longer have to accept as inevitable, the consequences of dental decay. We can be proactive and reduce caries development.
