About Cleanings & Exams
Dental Cleanings & Exams
At Bathurst College Dentistry our team of dentist and hygienists will make sure that your smile stays healthy and strong. We recommend regular visits to our office for dental cleanings and exams. As preventative and therapeutic measures, we scale your teeth and take X-rays of your mouth to promote oral health.
