Preventive Services

Regular dental visits are a crucial element to life-long health. Your health, well-being and satisfaction are top priorities at Petaluma Family Dentistry. We believe in patient-centered care, and as highly trained professionals, we pride ourselves on our dedication to exemplary service.

From calming anxieties and answering questions, to teaching proper dental hygiene habits and providing exceptional procedural skill – we offer comprehensive care to address all of your needs.

Cleanings, Exams and X-rays

Professional cleanings performed by our skilled hygienists and dental assistants are as critical to oral health as daily flossing and brushing. Bi-annual check-ups not only help to maintain oral health, they can catch potential problems in the early stages when they are more easily treatable. Left untreated, these small issues have the potential to become more serious, often necessitating more extensive and costly procedures to repair in the future.

Oral Cancer Screening

Regular visits to Petaluma Family Dentistry can improve your chances of early cancer detection, when it can be most easily treated. During your dental visit, Dr. Navid will discuss your health history and examine your mouth and throat for any suspicious changes that may be an indication of cancerous cells.

Children's Dentistry

At Petaluma Family Dentistry, we provide your child with a pleasant and fun experience, so there’s no fear of “next time.” Dr. Navid and the team take pride in seeing our youngest patients grow and develop, and strive to earn the trust of both children and parents.

Periodontal Health

Healthy gums are essential for the overall health of your mouth. Daily flossing and regular dental visits can help in the prevention of periodontitis (gum disease.) Read more about your periodontal health and the steps you can take between dental visits.

Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)

Bruxism can cause long-term damage to your teeth. Constant teeth grinding wears down the enamel surface to expose the soft dentin of the tooth. Read more about the symptoms of teeth grinding, and what you can do if you suspect you or a family member are experiencing issues related to Bruxism.


Your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) allows your mouth to move vertically as well as side to side. Temporomandiublar Joint Disorder (TMD) occurs when the TMJ is not properly aligned, causing improper bite positions which lead to discomfort during regular functions like chewing and speaking.
