Sealants | Dentist Palm Desert
Bringing Smiles to the Palm Desert Community
What is a sealant?
A dental sealant is a thin plastic film painted on the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars (the teeth directly in front of the molars). Sealants have been shown to be highly effective in the prevention of cavities.
How long will sealants last?
A sealant can last for as long as 5 to 10 years. Sealants should be checked at your regular dental appointment and can be reapplied if they are no longer in place.
Will sealants replace fluoride for cavity protection?
No. Fluorides, such as those used in toothpaste, mouth rinse, and community water supplies also help to prevent decay, but in a different way. Sealants keep germs and food particles out of the grooves by covering them with a safe plastic coating. Sealants and fluorides work together to prevent tooth decay.
Why is sealing a tooth better than waiting for decay and filling the cavity?
Decay damages teeth permanently. Sealants protect them. Sealants can save time, money, and the discomfort sometimes associated with dental fillings. Fillings are not permanent. Each time a tooth is filled, more drilling is done and the tooth becomes a little weaker.

What People Are Saying
We all know that going to the dentist is not fun but this place make the experience so much easier they are very friendly and professional I had Dr. Nadi as my dentist and he did a great job. I highly recommend this place.
Professional, friendly, good service.
I have been going here for years. Office staff are amazing. Dr. D is great. Karen is a great hygienist.
This is the best dental group we've been to in the desert! The Doctor is great, very friendly and pleasant and the staff is so nice! The best part is, they don't try and sell you on things you don't need! Nothing bothers us more than a dentist who claims you need all these extras and then tries to sell you on them. They don't do that at Parc Center Dental Group! YAY!
I usually do not write reviews but I have to do one for this company they are simply the best, we all know is not that fun to visit the Dentist but this staff makes the experience so much easier, everyone here is very respectful, friendly and professional, I had Dr. Nadi and he was nothing but excellent, I highly recommend this Dental group if you are looking for excellence.
BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCE EVER!! I'll admit, I was hesitant after reading Michelle's review, but because of my HMO insurance I only have a few to choose from. Not only was the Dentist (Dr. Nadi), but also the office staff and hygienist (Karen), professional, friendly, caring and helpful. The office and exam rooms were cheerful, very clean and inviting. First Dentist I have been to that didn't try to 'soft sell' you; only recommended what was absolutely necessary. I would recommend all who seek a Dentist, whether HMO or PPO to call and make an appointment. I would give more than 5 stars if I could. Thank you Parc Center Dental Group.
The dentist could easily convinced me to get a crown, but he explained that it was only a watch and see situation.
The dental hygienist and dentist are both very friendly as well as very efficient. I get my teeth cleaned quickly but they do a thorough job and are not rushing to get me out the door and onto the next patient. They take the time to answer any questions as well as work to get me my desired appointment times.
