 At O’Kane & Monssen, preventive dentistry in St. Paul, MN is an everyday collaboration between us and you. With a balanced diet and good oral hygiene at home and thoughtful care at our office, you can maintain a great smile and better overall health. 


Here’s what to expect at a preventive appointment: 


  • Dental exam centered on your dental needs

  • Oral cancer screening

  • Functional bite analysis

  • Review diagnostic x-rays, if needed

  • Periodontal exam, checking the health of gums and bone

Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments

that help protect the teeth. Keeping regular dentist appointments in St. Paul is a great way to maintain your health.

At O'Kane & Monssen, we offer Oral ID™ screenings to every patient at every wellness exam.

Oral ID™ uses a proven "fluorescence technology" that provides an aid in visualization of abnormal lesions, including cancer and pre-cancer that may not be apparent to the naked eye. Fluorescence technology has been used in the medical field for many years, and in the dental field it has successfully screened more than 25 million patients in the past decade.

“I finally talked my wife into coming to Highland to see O’Kane & Monssen. After her appointment, she was 
bragging how ‘lovely’ her first appointment was, her teeth didn’t hurt after the cleaning, she felt ahh-mazing! O’Kane &  Monssen has the coolest hygienists ever, you guys rock!
