In addition to our own website, there are other sites on the Web that provide interesting and helpful dental information. Because we are committed to improving the oral healthcare knowledge of our patients, we are providing the following selection of links to other sites you might find interesting and informative.
Note that, even though none of these sites links back directly to turnerpetrasicsmiles by clicking the "Back" button, if you just close the link by using "Close" in "File" on the toolbar or click the "X" in the upper right corner, our turnerpetrasicsmiles website page will still be open on your screen.

The page that is "linked" by clicking on this button is a great resource that discusses approved dental materials and presents prevention concepts to keep teeth and gum tissues healthy. This is one of few "refereed" sources of information. That means that all the information has to pass rigorous scientific methods in order to be included in ADA's written and electronic publications.
