At Gatling Dentistry, our goal is to provide our patients with the highest quality of general dental care possible. Jacksonville dentist Dr. Robert Gatling and his team utilize only the highest quality materials and the latest technology available.
We all know that good oral hygiene keeps your teeth looking clean and shiny but did you know that it’s also essential to your overall health? It’s true, poor oral hygiene can contribute to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, and heart disease. For this reason, dentists recommend your teeth be cleaned by a dental hygienist at least twice a year. Prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) is the process of removing plaque and tartar build-up in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. At Gatling Dentistry, our average dental cleaning is a very routine and pain-free procedure that usually takes 45 minutes.
What Makes Gatling Dentistry Different

- Patients Involved In Care
We feel when patients are part of the team, the team is complete. When patients know what we are doing and why we are doing it, they make better decisions for themselves and their expectations are met.
We take a proactive preventive approach to our patients care. From our initial exam to our hygiene room, we look for the early warning signs of breakdown, such as worn teeth, in effort to prevent more extensive and expensive treatment down the road.
