What Does a General Dentist Do?
A general dentist is usually called a primary dental care provider. Instead of focusing on one dental specialty, they help care for your oral health through routine care services designed to detect, treat, and prevent many different dental problems.
What Is a General Family Dentist?
General family dentistry is a broad field that aims to improve your oral health. Your dentist offers professional cleanings and comprehensive exams to prevent diseases affecting your teeth and gums, and you can also receive treatment for many common dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Family Dentistry Services
In addition to routine exams and cleanings, general dentists offer preventive and corrective care services to ensure excellent oral health. Some of the services offered by our general dentists include:
How Often Should I Go To the Dentist?
If you’re in good oral health and without a history of dental problems, most dentists advise scheduling two appointments each year. Patients at high-risk for dental problems or those with existing problems may need to be seen more frequently.
What Costs Can I Expect?
The amount you owe is based on if you have dental insurance and the services you received. If you’re concerned about the price of your visit, please call our office to receive a cost estimate.

How Can I Prepare?
We believe that visiting the dentist should be a pleasant and stress-free experience. Be prepared ahead of time by following these tips.

Try to arrive early to your appointment so you can relax for a few minutes and familiarize yourself with the clinic and staff.
