Preventive Dentistry for Ephrata
Preventive dentistry checkups and cleanings at Ephrata Family Dentistry and daily at-home hygiene are the keys to keeping smiles whole and healthy. Without this solid foundation in general dentistry, patients are much more likely to experience advanced dental decay and damage. From the very first moment they arrive at our Ephrata, PA dental practice, patients are made to feel right at home. During your first appointment, you’ll meet with one of our caring dentists, Dr. Sean Moriarty and Dr. Suzanne Ahnquist. You should expect to spend a little extra time with us during this initial visit. We recommend patients plan for at least 90 minutes in our office. This gives our team time to carefully assess your oral and overall health history, thoroughly examine your smile for signs of common concerns, clean your teeth, and discuss ongoing care creating a treatment schedule to meet your needs. Contact us to find out more or schedule your first appointment today.

Dental Cleanings & Exams
At Ephrata Family Dentistry, we believe that oral health should be one of our patients’ top priorities not just because healthy smiles look, feel, and function better for patients. Optimal oral health also makes it easier for patients to keep their whole bodies healthy because they are able to consume a variety of healthy foods and properly aligned, whole, healthy teeth also prevent other concerns like TMJ dysfunction and gum disease that are linked to numerous whole body health issues. Visiting our office for checkups and cleanings every six months offers patients three main oral health benefits:
- Prevention – these regular appointment make it possible for us to partner with patients in preventing many common oral health concerns
- Early diagnosis – by discovering and treating oral health issues in the earliest stages, we’re able to save patients time, money, and discomfort that may be related to more advanced health concerns and their treatments
- Professional cleaning – professional cleanings allow our skilled team to remove plaque and tartar from even the hardest to access areas of patients’ smiles preventing many common oral health issues
