Protect Your Teeth With Regular Checkups
Healthy smiles don’t just happen. You need proactive dental care, which includes visiting our practice for regular dental checkups. Our preventive care solutions help you stay ahead of dental problems before they progress. Dr. Thomas and our team offer:
- Dental Cleanings – We’ll remove plaque and tartar with our ultrasonic cleaning technology. These cleanings reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
- Dental Exams – We do a thorough exam of your mouth to find potential issues in advance. We use digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and cavity detectors.
- Periodontal Treatment – If you have gum disease, we can treat it non-surgically with scaling and root planing.
- Mouthguards – Get better protection for your teeth with custom mouthguards, whether you need a sports guard or a nightguard to protect against teeth grinding.
While we focus on preventing problems, we also offer comprehensive restorative services to repair your smile. You can also see us for dental emergencies. We’ll treat you as soon as possible to get you out of pain.
If you are hesitant to visit the dentist due to anxiety, we can help with that, too. Laughing gas can help you feel at ease during your appointment. You can combine that with our comfort options.

The best of the best. Dr. Thomas and his associates delivers the highest level of care and comfort you could ever want if you need a dental procedure. I was welcomed from the first call with Nancy for an appointment all the way through to my dental procedure and after care..on a scale of 1-10 I’d say 15 ..am only stopping there, because seriously the level of care is off the charts…Guys thank you!!!
I had a Ted Thomas coaching course and I enjoyed the service very much. What I enjoyed the most were the people – Ted, coaches and staffs. They were really people and there for you. Also, learning all the details with experts in your own pace was wonderful and you could easily build your confidence in your learning.
I had a little struggle in the beginning for self-study phase but Ted took the initiative to make sure I would learn the process from the best people from his team, which was absolutely amazing and make this program very personal.
Hands down BEST dental practice in the DMV. Dr. Ted is an Extraordinarily Gifted and Principled DMD who cares more for the well-being of his patients and staff than lining his pockets. If you need adroit, caring and safe dental hygiene and restorative work don’t hesitate Call White Oak Dental.
Positively the best dentist in the world. I have lived all over but this Dentist really cares and it shows. He is gentle and his office staff is friendly. I would never go to anyone else again. I moved closer to the area to make him my dentist!
I had an emergency where a piece of my molar came off and I was in such pain! I felt like I had a dry socket like when I had my wisdom teeth removed and the pain was HORRIBLE. Anyways, I called my own dentist who wouldn’t have had seen me until Four days later and I called around and no one else was able to fit me in that day. I called Dr. Thomas’s office right before they were going to close and they were able to fit me in and do my procedure which was quick and painless. I was so nervous but Dr. Thomas and his staff were super friendly which caused my anxiety and fear levels to drop significantly! They worked with me, my insurance and set up a payment plan. As I was walking out the door, I knew “This is going to be my new dentist for sure”! Their friendly and kind approach won me over!
Daily oral hygiene is essential to keeping your mouth clean and healthy. But as important as brushing and flossing are, they aren’t enough on their own to protect your teeth and gums. General dentistry covers a wide range of treatments designed to help you prevent and detect dental problems, so you can keep your oral health on track.
Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth with fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.
Although any dentist should have the knowledge necessary to perform general dental services, most specialists focus their treatment in just one area. That’s why it’s better to visit a dental practice like White Oak Dental. We perform general dental care on a daily basis. You’ll get the best, most efficient care for your smile.
