Your dentist in Orlando checks for decay and gum diseaseHealth care professionals at the well-respected Cleveland Clinic reinforce something that your dentist in Orlando, Dr. Ziyad Maali, teaches: prevent problems with your teeth and gums with regular professional cleanings and check-ups. Most children, teens, and adults should see Dr. Maali twice a year.


Do you really need to have your teeth professionally cleaned twice each year? After all, you are diligent about your at-home oral hygiene routine; you brush at least two times a day with fluoride toothpaste, you floss daily and you use a mouth rinse. That’s all well and good, but there is really nothing like a professional teeth cleaning in Doctor Phillips with the team at Sand Lake Family Dental. We offer two types of teeth cleaning: one is standard and performed during your biannual checkup and the other is a deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar. Schedule the standard cleanings twice a year and we may not need to see you for a deep cleaning.

In most cases of dental anonymities, your approach to brushing may be the issue.

Many people, however, are not good candidates for dental implants, but could vastly benefit from them. This is why Dr. Ziyad Maali now offers mini dental implants in Orlando.
