As a comprehensive and professional dental practice, North Rivers Dental is committed to the education of our patients. We find that it is easier for patients to take their oral care into their own hands if they have a firm understanding of the oral health systems. This way we can make sure that proper steps are taken after leaving our office, as good hygiene starts at home.
