Patient Education Library

At Richmond Family Dentistry, holistic dentist Dr. Olivia Hart and our team of dental specialists work together to help patients achieve beautiful smiles and optimal dental health. This also means that we take the health of your whole body into consideration in everything we do.

Our priority is keeping your teeth and gums healthy through prevention, and education for our patients on the best ways to take care of your oral health. This goes beyond just brushing and flossing, and includes information on the optimal diet for your oral health, how you can protect your teeth from issues such as clenching and grinding and understanding why we may recommend certain treatments such as the ALF appliance to help our younger patients’ smiles develop into their maximum potential.

We believe that when our patients are well-informed, they are more confident in taking care of their teeth and can be true partners in maintaining oral hygiene and creating healthy smiles for a lifetime. To this end, we offer a thorough dental library that is easily accessible for you to read more on topics of interest. Feel free to browse the patient education library below, and don’t hesitate to call our Richmond, VA office at (804) 381-6238 or email us at info@richmondfamilydentistry.com if you have any further questions regarding your dental care and treatment options.

Testimonials

Dr. Hart and the staff at Richmond Family Dentistry are incredibly compassionate and accommodating. My kids, 7 and 11, both happily go to the dentist as do my husband and myself, both of which did not enjoy our dentist experiences growing up. Knowing that my family gets healthy, non-toxic dental health is the priority and having it all be a pleasant experience is a HUGE bonus. Thank you for providing such an amazing option for optimum health on many levels.
