Cleanings & Prevention

Cleanings and Preventive Services in Tucson

The best medicine is not reactive, but preventive. This goes for dental medicine as well. It’s by and large highly preferable to prevent complications rather than treat them when they become urgent. 

Take advantage of the professional cleanings and preventive services offered at Swan Dental. Colby Echols, DDS, is a dental healthcare provider focused on the health of his patients. He recognizes that preventive measures are the best avenue to oral health, and so he makes his practice a welcoming environment that patients look forward to returning to for their biyearly visits. 

Preventive Efforts for Healthy Smiles

The Swan Dental team keeps Tucson full of healthy smiles with the aid of our preventive treatments, which include: 

Sealants: We offer sealants to patients of all ages. Although most commonly associated with children, this strategically-placed treatment can preemptively fill cavity-prone teeth and prevent decay from taking hold. Baby teeth and adult teeth alike will benefit from the addition of sealants. Invest in your smile with dental sealants. 

Fluoride Soaks: This powerful substance makes for a great final step after a deep cleaning. Once the teeth and gums are free of plaque and tartar, fluoride will charge up the enamel and encourage it to actively re-mineralize. Consider fluoride soaks as the dental equivalent of a deep-conditioning hair treatment.

Patient Education: No staff member at Swan Dental is ever too busy to answer patient questions. We provide thorough instruction and relevant information to our patients. Proper at-home care is arguably the most important preventive measure, so we want to empower our patients with the knowledge to succeed. 

Gentle Cleanings to Encourage Return Visits

A professional cleaning is necessary a least twice per year—but our kind staff members make the experience so enjoyable that patients want to come back even more frequently than that. 

Dr. Echols and his team listen intently to their patients, staying mindful of their threshold of discomfort and ensuring their experience is pleasant. Patients enjoy their time visiting us as much as they appreciate the genuinely clean feel of their teeth post-visit.

Very impressed. Dr. Echols conducted much of the cleaning himself and thoroughly examined my teeth and gums. Staff members were friendly and professional. I'm glad I chose this practice.

Swan Dental is a very friendly yet professional Dental Office with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and Doctor. This was my first visit and was called in exactly at my appointed time; I'm am very pleased so far. I'm happy I tried them. BTW, the prices they charged were a little lower than those of my previous dentist.
Update - some months later, went in for 2 fillings. Dr Echols and his assistant had them both done in about 20 minutes, and no pain. Simply a great dental office!

I live in North Carolina and was in Tucson helping our daughter move. A poor choice in candy selection resulted the crown on a lower molar "popping off". I called several dentists on a Monday morning and one of the dentist's receptionist referred me to Swan Dental - her personal dentist. The folks at Swan were incredible. They were efficient, kind, friendly, professional ... the superlatives just keep coming. I was thrilled to be seen the same morning I called and the dentist cemented the crown expeditiously. The receptionist, assistant, and dentist were all extraordinary. I wish the dental professionals in my home town were as focused on providing such an exceptionally positive experience. Thanks!
