No matter what age you are, seeing your general or family dentist is the most effective way to maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime. Achieve a bright smile you’ll be proud to show off by visiting a general dentist today.

What’s a General Dentist?

As your primary dental care provider, general dentists are medical professionals who help you improve the function and appearance of your teeth. They accomplish this by preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases that affect your teeth and gums.

Services Provided by General Dentists

Dentists specializing in general family dentistry provide services to improve and maintain your smile while also preventing and treating problems before they develop into serious issues. Teeth cleanings, regular checkups, simple fillings, and advice about the most effective brushing and flossing techniques are examples of some of the services and treatments you can receive from your general dentist.

Our Family Dentistry Services

General dentistry services include a wide range of services to ensure the best possible oral health for you and your family. Here is a list of some of the services provided by our general dentists:

How Often Should a Person Visit the Dentist?

A scheduled visit every six months is appropriate for most people, but if you have a history of gum disease, excessive plaque build-up, or similar dental problems, you may need to schedule appointments with a general dentist more frequently.

How Much Am I Expected to Pay?

The total amount you will pay is based on the treatment you receive during your visit and if you have insurance. Feel free to contact our office with any questions you have about the cost of your visit.

Call to Schedule an Appointment

If you’re new to the area, or are just looking for a new dental care provider, it’s not uncommon to ask, “Is it possible to make an appointment with a general dentist near me?” We make it easy to provide our patients with high-quality dental care. Contact our office today to schedule a convenient appointment.

How Long Is a Routine Dentist Appointment?

If your appointment is for a more complex dental procedure, such as a root canal or gum disease treatment, the total length of your visit may be a couple of hours. A follow-up appointment with your dentist general practice usually takes about 30 minutes, and the average time for a routine examination is about an hour. If you have any concerns regarding the length of your appointment, or if you need help with scheduling, please call our office.

What’s the Best Way to Prepare?

Although it’s normal for people to feel anxious about going to the dentist, you might be surprised how a little preparation beforehand can make you feel more at ease. Arriving to your appointment early is a great way to settle in and relax a little before your appointment time. Please also plan on discussing your medical history and any medications you’re taking with your dentist. Finally, remember to have your insurance card or form of payment with you.

Are There Benefits to Receiving Regular General Dentistry Services?

When you don’t go to the dentist regularly, it’s possible for dental problems to worsen and become more serious over time. By maintaining visits with your dentist every six months, it’s much easier to keep your teeth and gums in top shape and avoid costly and time-consuming treatments caused by lack of routine dental care. Maintain your good health and smile by contacting us to schedule an appointment.
