Family & Preventative Dentistry

If you’re looking for a dentist in Mount Vernon who can treat your whole family, please look no further than Dr. Blake J. Perry of Perry Family Dentistry. We are a holistic dentistry practice that devotes much of our time to Family Dentistry and Preventative Dentistry. The best way to handle tooth and gum disease is never to let them develop. With twice-yearly cleanings/exams and good oral hygiene at home, you’ll do your part to minimize your chances of ever needing major dental work.

What You Can Expect with Family Dentistry

With twice-yearly exams and cleanings and an open mind to our holistic approach to dentistry, you can actively prevent tooth and gum decay and disease. With exams, cleanings, and oral cancer screenings using the most innovative technology available in the dental industry today, Dr. Perry and his team will guide you through a lifetime of excellent oral health. Treating the “whole body” as an interconnected system can minimize your risk of developing teeth, mouth, and gum disease.

We treat children, young adults, adults, and seniors from every demographic in the Mount Vernon area. Spanish-speaking dental team members are here for you should English not be your primary language. We offer several amenities and even offer sedation dentistry to make your time in our office as comfortable, pain-free, and anxiety-free as possible.

Preventative Dentistry

Oral cancer screenings are a vital part of our preventative dentistry practice, and we are excited to share our cutting-edge technology with you and your family. While we don’t always discuss oral cancer screenings at every appointment, we always check for it at every visit. We believe early detection is the best defense, and we use intraoral photography that allows us to see so much more than earlier dental technology ever did.

Our iTero® Intraoral Scanner is an amazing technology that has helped save hundreds of lives by detecting the very earliest signs of oral cancer. It’s a myth that only older adults get oral cancer; unfortunately, this type of cancer targets no single group of people, so yes, we even screen for oral cancer in our younger patients.

A Bit About Holistic Dentistry

Dr. Blake and his team strive to help patients understand the connection between oral health, physical health, and emotional well-being. Holistic dentistry does not just focus on conditions of the mouth, teeth, and gums. Dr. Perry works with your medical doctors to gather as much information about you as possible to get a complete picture of your health and any medical issues that may impact your dental care. Dr. Perry has helped people improve their glucose levels and even helped them stop smoking, and he is proud to devote his practice to his patients’ whole health, not just their oral health.

This is a holistic approach to ensure your entire being is treated and brought to its optimal level. Dr. Perry does not just fix a dental issue and send you on your way; he works tirelessly to address your medical issues. If we only treat your symptoms without getting to the cause of your problem, then we have not provided comprehensive, integrative, holistic care.

TMJ Treatment

At our Mount Vernon family dentistry practice, we see many family members with TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). This complicated disorder plagues millions of Americans each year, and you may very well be one of those suffering from symptoms that are affecting your quality of life.

We can treat both of these conditions with a variety of mouth guards, night guards, oral appliances, and other terms used for oral orthotic devices that help with jaw position. Treating TMJ is a considerable part of our practice, and we would love to help you if you’re facing either one or both of these conditions.
