Oral Health is
Essential to Health
and Wellness

Good oral hygiene and regular check ups can help
maintain a great smile and overall health


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

  • Beautifully cleaned and polished teeth


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.

“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!
