We’re all familiar with what it feels like to have our teeth cleaned: some looking, some buzzing, some scraping, some polishing, some flossing, and then we’re on our way home to enjoy another spring day in Madison.

- Computer Imaging and Periodontal Probe
- Ultrasonic and Hand Scalers
- Floss and Fluoride
