Comprehensive Dentistry

At St. Johns Smile Care, we provide everything you need for your dental care, from comprehensive exams to oral surgery.

Our high-quality care is given hand-in-hand with a friendly, supportive team of professionals. When you need oral healthcare, look no further!

Regular exams are an essential part of your oral health. This is the time when your dentist can check for problems like tooth decay or gum disease. Catching these conditions at an early stage makes it easier to treat and eliminate them, but there are different types of dental exams.

  • Comprehensive – A comprehensive exam is just like it sounds: a detailed evaluation of your entire oral health. During this time, the dentist will look for any signs of cavities, infection, or gum disease in your teeth and gums. You’ll also be checked for symptoms of TMJ, which can become painful if not treated, and screened for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Limited – Limited exams are geared towards a particular problem that you are having. For instance, if your tooth hurts and you’re not sure why, you can schedule a limited exam to get the problem diagnosed. 
  • Second Opinion – Did you hear some news you’re not sure about from another specialist? Or did someone suggest a treatment that you aren’t positive is for you? We are more than happy to give you an evaluation to offer a second opinion.

Preventative Dentistry

Treatment is important, but prevention is the best form of good dental hygiene. Preventative dentistry is more than just good brushing habits. It includes a wide range of dental care that you and your dentist design for your unique gum and teeth needs.

  • Gum Disease – Sensitive gums could mean you have the beginnings of a disease called gingivitis. Symptoms of this condition are usually swollen or puffy gums, tenderness, and receding gum lines. When left untreated, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis, which leads to tooth loss and other bone damage.

Preventative care for gum disease can include multiple treatments, but a common therapy is an antibiotic for infections causing the gum disease. Care guidelines to help you fight the condition must be followed.

  • Teeth Cleaning – Even if you practice healthy teeth cleaning habits at home, regular dental cleanings are important. Trained hygienists clean your teeth with special tools that scrape away built-up plaque and tartar. 

Then they floss your teeth thoroughly, even in the areas that are difficult for you to reach. This treatment is followed up by brushing with a dental electric toothbrush. Having a trained professional clean your teeth ensures that those pockets of food and plaque buildup don’t sit too long and cause damage.

  • Fluoride Care – Fluoride treatments aren’t for everyone, but if your tooth enamel isn’t strong enough, they may be recommended. Fluoride care usually consists of topical therapies that help protect your teeth from cavities and possible decay.
  • Sealants – Teeth that may have openings in them that make the tooth hard to clean can benefit from a dental sealant. A sealant is a covering that seals the open area to protect the tooth from being exposed to bacteria that cause infections and cavities.
  • Night Care – Many oral problems like TMJ and TMD occur because of how you hold your mouth when you’re sleeping. You can’t do anything about it when you’re sleeping. But with dental mouth care, these problems can be fixed.

Your dentist can create a custom night guard if you grind your teeth in your sleep. If you play sports, a mouthguard can help prevent damage during the sport. These guards help protect your teeth from pressure or daily damage when you wear them overnight.


Periodontal disease can be treated simply if it’s caught early enough. This disease begins as gingivitis, but if it hits the stage where it becomes periodontitis, treatment must be done by a dental specialist. At St. Johns Smile Care, we can handle all of your periodontal care.

Treatment for periodontitis can be non-surgical and surgical, and your care will depend on your other health conditions and the severity of your case.

  • Gum Disease – Regular exams can catch gingivitis early and treatments such as antibiotics and at-home dental care can be enough to eliminate this problem. If it turns into periodontitis, though, you’ll need more care.
  • Scaling and Root Planing – “Deep cleaning” for periodontitis includes scaling and root planing. Your root’s surfaces are thoroughly cleaned so that the plaque and tartar are removed. These pocket areas are where toxins can build up, increasing the severity of periodontal disease.
  • Adjunctive Therapy – “Add-on” therapies, also called “adjunctive care,” may be suggested for your periodontal care. These treatments may include add-ons


At St. Johns Smile Care, we provide our patients with high-quality care in a friendly, supportive environment. Our services range from preventative screening and exams to restorative and surgical care. We offer the best care for your oral health and we want you satisfied!

Let me start out my saying that I have incredible anxiety about dentists/dental work but the staff and Dr.Drew were very kind and patient with me. I had a tooth extraction and filling done in one sitting with no pain and his dental assistant Kristy was very welcoming and polite to me and my sister who joined me for support during the procedure. For people who do not struggle with anxiety about dental work it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but to me it was a really fantastic experience being made to feel calm and relaxed while also being able to get the treatment I need for my dental health. I highly recommend Dr.Drew and his staff. They are always in constant communication with their patients and truly provide great service. 10/10 best dentist I have ever been to. And they will continue to have my business.

I've been a customer at this office for almost 20 years. When Dr. Osteen sold her practice I considered looking for a new dentist. I am happy I stayed. Love Dr. Drew and the staff (old and news). Satisfied customer.

New patient, called because of a partial filling falling out Saturday night. They got me right in at 9 AM, this after me calling and waiting for my dentist of 20 + years to call me back from 7 AM. Thought just a simple repair of the filling, but NOT. Turns out I had a crack in the tooth which created the loss of my tooth when filing out the old filling. So, I ended up with my first crown, and I'm very please with the work done. Dr drew was very patient with me, and talked me through the complete procedure.(thank you). Staff was very professional and just all around awesome. Looking for a new dentist office - would highly recommend this one!

My husband went in this morning for the first time, as we just moved to Debary. Office staff was very pleasant and Dentist Peter Kelly was wonderful. He was patient and kind. He listened to our concerns and helped get us a dental treatment plan that we could afford. His dental assistant was incredibly sweet as well, missing her lunch to fit us in

I can’t say enough good things about my visit today to DeBary Dentistry. Dr. Drew & his assistant Kristy took the time to explain, step-by-step, my crown replacement procedure. I used to be a skeptic about this group but my opinion has changed.
