Optimizing Oral Health Using Preventive Dentistry

Your Choice Family Dentist in Virginia Beach!

Strong teeth and healthy gums do more than give you a great smile. Improving your oral health can positively impact whole-body wellbeing. That’s because the bacteria that cause dental disease can travel throughout the body and damage internal systems. For example, numerous studies link gum disease with systemic health problems, including heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, diabetes complications, dementia, and low birth weight. That’s why is it so important for all residents of Virginia Beach to have a family dentist they can rely on!

Since 1983, Schrumpf & Herman Family Dentistry has partnered with residents of Virginia Beach and surrounding areas to improve oral and overall health through advanced dental services. Dr. Schrumpf and Dr. Herman deliver leading-edge treatments to prevent and combat dental disease.

  • Checkups & Cleanings: It all starts with comprehensive checkups to identify existing dental issues and precursors to problems, as well as professional cleanings to improve and maintain periodontal health. We’ve replaced invasive, uncomfortable tools with high-tech ones, such as computer-aided (Logicon) cavity detection and digital radiography that reduces radiation compared with older technology, to increase your comfort and improve efficiency and safety.
  • Children’s Dentistry: Gentle checkups, comfortable cleanings, and cavity-fighting sealants and fluoride give kids in Virginia Beach happy, healthy smiles. Our compassionate staff and comfortable surroundings put kids at ease. We love helping children and teaching them that dental care can be easy and fun.
  • Gum Disease Therapy: Comprehensive periodontal charting at regular intervals lets Dr. Schrumpf accurately monitor the health of your gums, allowing him to prevent and address issues before they damage oral and overall health. Using his extensive knowledge of periodontal problems and treatments, Dr. Schrumpf can address the majority of your periodontal needs at our Virginia Beach dental office and eliminate the need for you to see a specialist. Our periodontal services include scaling, root planning, antibiotic therapy, pocket irrigation, and laser surgery.
  • Snoring & Sleep Apnea Therapy: If you snore or experience disrupted sleep because of sleep apnea, Dr. Herman can assess your unique situation and recommend the treatment that best suits your needs. Oral appliance therapy offers a comfortable, non-invasive, non-CPAP treatment alternative to eliminate snoring and lessen your risk of the health hazards associated with sleep apnea.
