Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
What Are the Benefits of Under Armour® Performance Mouth Guards?
Although there are numerous oral health care techniques you can use to keep your mouth clean and fresh, including brushing and flossing daily and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups, it is important to care for your teeth against oral accidents and injuries that can arise. One way to prevent damage is by wearing protective gear, such as Under Armour® Performance mouth guards, during high-risk activities.
Depending on the mouth guard brand and style, they can be customized and modified to your exact dental needs. Customizable mouth guards and boil-capable mouth guards can be modified to meet your dental profile specification. However, there is also a one-size-fits-all mouthguard that is generally used when the other ones cannot be implemented.
When you are wearing Under Armour® Performance mouth guards, be sure to remember that it is an extension of your teeth, and they need to be cared for just as your mouth does. This means they are subject to damage due to harmful bacteria, which could contaminate your entire mouth, so keep them clean at all times. In some situations, wearing mouth guards may seem cowardly, but the loss of teeth and dental damage that can occur due to blunt trauma is much more important than how your peers may perceive you.
No matter the mouth guards you desire, Dr. Douglas Wheelock and our team at Wheelock & Associates Dentistry are here to give you the smile you want.
