Routine dental checkups are the key to maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile.
The American Dental Association and family dentist Dr. Dham recommend that all patients receive two professional dental cleanings every year. From the emergence of a child’s first tooth, patients should start visiting the dentist every six months for life.
Routine dental cleanings remove tough to reach plaque and tartar buildup from between the teeth. Dr. Dham is able to monitor the development of teeth and can spot early indications of any developing oral health concerns. Patients who visit the dentist at least twice a year experience less tooth decay, have a lower risk of gum disease and enjoy an overall healthier smile.
Brushing and flossing twice a day every day is a great way to keep teeth clean between visits to our Plantation, FL dentist office. AT your routine dental exam Dr. Dham or a member of our dental care team can make personalized recommendations on brushing and flossing techniques, and the best products to use to promote your optimal oral health.

I am very impressed with Dr. Uttma and her professionalism. She is a very knowledgeable dentist with extensive cosmetic and Invisalign training. I would definitely refer my family and friends to her for their care!!Dani C.
I would suggest that anyone opening a practice set up a shadowing session with Dr. Uttma and her staff. They'll show you exactly what patient's expect during a visit. There have been so many times where I've scheduled appts with other offices and they don't even do the work. No…NJ J
I wish I had met Dr. Dharm and her staff years ago. Better late than never. This was the most extensive dental work I have ever had. Dr. Dharm's skill and concern got me through it all. Her staff is not only professional but caring and friendly. They are all…Nia I.
