COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy ensures that your smile stays bright and beautiful. Taking good care of your teeth at home is important. However, to be certain that your dental health is the best it can be, you need to visit a general or family dentist.
The Definition of a General Dentist
A general dentist is a dental professional who specializes in managing overall dental health for individuals and family members of all ages. General dentists provide many different services to maintain the health of their patients’ teeth and gums. Many general dentists treat patients and their families, and serve as their primary point of contact for dental health issues.
How Do General Family Dentistry Services Maintain Dental Health?
A general dentist maintains dental health through diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases of the teeth and gums. Your dentist’s job includes performing exams and professional cleanings, filling cavities, preventing and treating infections and diseases, gingivitis/gum cleaning, helping you manage your home care routine and managing emergency dental problems, such as toothaches and injuries. We also offer night guards for bruxism. When you have any type of dental need, your dentist is there to help.
Our Full Range of General Dentistry Services
We offer a range of general dentistry services to meet the many needs of our patients. Our available services are outlined below.
How Often Should You Schedule a Dental Checkup?
If you have good dental health and oral hygiene habits, you should schedule a general dental office appointment every six months. People with chronic illnesses or ongoing dental problems may need to schedule more frequent visits.
How Much Will I Pay for My Dental Visit?
Each patient’s treatment needs are unique, so the cost of a dental visit varies widely. Call us for more detailed information about office visit fees and treatment costs.

How Long Will My Dentist General Practice Visit Last?
If you’re just having a checkup, you should be finished within an hour. If complex treatments or procedures are needed, it will probably take longer. Contact our office for more specific information about your appointment.
Be Prepared for Your Appointment
To help ensure that your appointment goes smoothly, arrive on time, bring your insurance information, and be prepared to provide a brief medical history and a list of over-the-counter and prescription medications that you are currently taking. If you are experiencing dental anxiety or panic symptoms before or during your visit, please inform us so that we can do everything possible to make your visit less stressful.
What Will Happen If I Don’t See the Dentist?
Without regular checkups, early signs of tooth decay and gum disease may escape your notice. By the time you develop painful symptoms, it will cost more and require more invasive treatments to resolve the problem. Save money on dental procedures, restorations and more by seeing your dentist regularly. Call our office today to schedule your appointment, and let us help you keep your smile at its best.
