home / services / preventative dentistry



Preventative dentistry covers several routine dental services, such as exams, cleanings, fillings and occasionally, emergency dentistry. At Johnson Family Dental in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Camarillo, and Solvang, our primary goal is simple: to prevent your need for extensive restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Through regular maintenance, our Johnson Family Dental Practice can help you prevent poor oral health due to decay and disease — problems that can negatively affect your overall health and well-being.

Maintaining good oral hygiene remains one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums help you to not only look and feel good, but they allow you to eat and speak properly.

Johnson Family Dental in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Camarillo, and Solvang has experienced dentists, stressing the fact that daily preventative care — such as proper brushing and flossing — we can prevent problems from developing. Between regular visits to our full-service offices in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Camarillo, and Solvang.

There are simple steps you can take to greatly decrease your risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental or medical problems.

  • Brush thoroughly twice a day and floss daily
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit snacks between meals
  • Use dental products that contain fluoride, including toothpaste
  • Rinse with a fluoride mouth rinse if your dentist advises you to
  • Make sure that children under 12 drink fluoridated water
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and exams
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months


The following are indications of good oral hygiene:

  • Teeth are clean and free of debris
  • Gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss
  • Bad breath is not a constant problem

What People Are Saying

Came in for a free consultation and also received a free x-ray. I was immediately accommodated and had 3 wisdom teeth extracted in the same visit. Very good service. I had minimal pain and no swelling. Very pleased with the results. Received good instruction on post-surgery care and a caring attitude by the staff.

Our family has been with Johnson Family Dental for several years now. We are extremely pleased with their services, especially given that our young boys have been introduced to visits to the dentist in a way that they look forward to. That helps alot! And their care for all of us has been superb. Need I say more? Thanks Johnson Family Dental! Oh, did I also mention that we use their Solvang and Santa Barbara locations? Equally fine!

I've been a patient at Johnson Family Dental for over a year, and this was my third visit, a routine cleaning. I arrived about 15 minutes early, and they were able to see me prior to my appointed time. The assistant took x-rays, Dr. Johnson--always friendly--did a quick exam, and the hygienist did a thorough yet gentle cleaning. The office was clean and bright, the staff was friendly and helpful, and I was on my way with clean teeth!

I am a new customer and was given an immediate appointment for tooth pain and had a root canal. From the very first interaction, every member of the staff were courteous, pleasant and caring. The care was excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

From the reception desk and beyond Johnson family dental makes me feel welcome and comfortable. They seem to understand how nerve wracking it is to go to the dentist even though it is normal to them. I appreciate being made to feel comfortable.

I am a long-time customer of Johnson Family Dental - ever since my graduate school days - now living in Reno, Nevada. I still travel back to Santa Barbara, 1000+ miles, for the exceptional dental care I always receive at this fine practice.
