Whether you need a professional cleaning or routine examination, you can count on receiving quality dental care at our general dental office. We are committed to providing patient-centered care to you and your family.
A general dentist, also referred to as a “family dentist” or a “general practitioner,” performs services related to the basic maintenance of your teeth and gums. They also treat and prevent common dental problems and work with patients within every age range.
Dentists practicing general family dentistry at our dental office are dedicated to providing high quality dental care. In addition to preventive and corrective care, dentists provide comprehensive exams and checkups, cleanings, and simple fillings. Your dentist can also diagnose and treat a variety of conditions that affect your teeth and gums.
General dentists are trained to provide a variety of services designed to improve your oral health. Here’s a few examples of our general dentistry services:
Unless you have existing dental issues like cavities and gingivitis, most dentists recommend a checkup about every six months for healthy patients.
The price of your visit depends on the treatment you will receive and whether or not you have dental insurance. Contact us for more information about the cost of your dental visit.
It’s not uncommon to wonder, “How can I make an appointment with a general dentist near me?” The answer to that question can be found with a quick call to our office. Contact us today to learn more about our services and make your first appointment.
A routine appointment with your dentist general practice usually takes about an hour to complete. You should plan for several hours if you require a more complex and extensive dental procedure, but if you’re only coming in for a quick follow-up visit, that generally takes about 30 minutes. Please call our office if you have concerns about whether your dental appointment will fit into your schedule.
Dental anxiety is a common fear for many people, and we’d like to help ensure a comfortable visit when you visit our office. Please bring these items along with you when you arrive at our clinic: a detailed list of your health history and any current medications, a list of questions you may have for your dentist, and your insurance card or other form of payment. Avoid the stress of running late and arrive to your appointment a few minutes early so you can fill out any forms and take some time to relax before your appointment.
When you don’t receive regular checkups and cleanings, dental issues that could be easy to treat when caught early can quickly develop into serious problems. This increases the likelihood of requiring treatments that are expensive, time-consuming, and potentially painful. Preventive care is the first step in ensuring the overall health of your mouth and reducing the need for invasive, lengthy dental treatments.
