More About Us

Preventative Oral Cares

Data Driven Dental Practice

At Phillip Fletcher DDS, we use the information gathered during your regular exams to provide baseline data about the health of your teeth and gums. We use this data to make treatment recommendations for general dentistry, as well as cosmetic and restorative dental services. When patients return with a problem, these records provide data that shows the changes in oral health.

Every member of our staff truly treats every patient like they are a part of the family. Our Palo Alto dentist looks at every aspect of your oral health and provides exceptional quality treatment to restore your oral health, improve cosmetic flaws, and keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy for life.

We begin every new exam by looking at every aspect of your overall oral health to ensure minimal intervention and prevention of serious infections.
