Many dental practices offer fluoride applications and dental sealants as a regular part of dental care for children. At Charles F. Betts, Jr., D.M.D. Family Dentistry, we offer them for adults too. The anti-decay benefits of these treatments don’t stop when you get a driver’s license! Dr. Betts performs a risk assessment to help determine how susceptible you are to tooth decay.
