The professional team at our general dental office wants you to feel comfortable and confident with a beautiful, healthy smile. Maintain your dental health for life by seeing your dentist regularly.

What Is a General Family Dentist?

General dentists are primary dental care providers who don’t work within a single dental specialty, but rather provide general dental care. In addition to maintaining the appearance and function of your teeth, general dentists also prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat a variety of dental problems.

General Dentist Responsibilities

General family dentistry services include a variety of treatments, procedures, and exams that help you maintain a lifetime of excellent oral health. When you come into the office for a specific problem like tooth or mouth pain, your dentist will evaluate your mouth to determine the cause of the issue and provide efficient treatment. General dentists also provide exams, teeth cleanings, fillings, and can educate you on the most effective way to brush and floss your teeth.

Our General Dentistry Services

General dentistry services are focused on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of conditions and diseases that affect your teeth and gums. Here is a list of important services provided by our general dentists.

How Many Visits Are Required for Good Dental Health?

Though the frequency of dental visits depends on the health of the individual, most people with good oral health should visit their general dentist office every six months.

How Much Is a Trip to the Dentist?

How much you pay after your visit is based on whether you have dental insurance and which treatment you received. Call us today to learn more about how much your dental visit will cost.

Schedule Your Next Visit

If you’ve recently moved to a new area, you’re probably wondering, “How can I make an appointment with a general dentist near me?” Simply give our office a call, and we’ll see to it that you and your family achieve bright, healthy smiles.

Length of Your Visit

In general, follow-up visits after an initial treatment take about a half an hour, though several hours may be required for anything beyond a routine visit. The average length of time for a checkup and cleaning takes about an hour. Whether you need a routine cleaning or more complex dental procedure, contact us today to arrange a convenient appointment with our dentist general practice.

Preparing for Your Next Visit

Seeing the dentist might make you feel nervous, but it doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. Follow these tips for a more pleasant visit. If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card with you or another form of payment. Be prepared to discuss your medical history and any prescriptions you’re currently taking. Finally, plan on arriving to our office ahead of time so you can get to know the staff and complete any necessary forms.

What Happens When You Don’t Go to the Dentist?

Seeing your dentist twice a year for a routine examination is the best way to maintain the health of your teeth and gums for a lifetime. When your dentist discovers the early signs of dental problems, an effective treatment plan that’s less expensive and time-consuming can be developed. This not only saves you time and money, but early detection can also save your teeth and reduce the likelihood of requiring a crown or root canal.
