We are open - safety is our top priority!
Professional dental care is essential for keeping your teeth looking great and avoiding more serious and costly dental problems as you age. If you practice good oral hygiene at home and see your dentist regularly, you can enjoy a radiant smile throughout your life.
Who Is Your General Dentist?
A general dentist acts as a primary dental health provider. General dentists treat people of any age and often manage dental care for entire families. Rather than focusing their practice on a specific type of dentistry, general dentists perform many different dental services and procedures to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
The Important Role of a General Dentist
Providers in general family dentistry focus on your long-term dental health. They inspect your teeth and gums for disease, fill cavities, perform professional cleanings, offer home care advice and treat any dental infections or other painful problems that arise.

Preparing for Your Appointment
To get the most from your appointment, arrive on time, bring a list of your present and past health conditions and any medications and supplements you’re currently taking. Also, be prepared to provide your identification and insurance information. If you feel uneasy or anxious about your appointment, please let us know so that we can help make your experience less uncomfortable.
What Happens When You Avoid Seeing Your Dentist?
Dental problems don’t always have symptoms, especially when they first develop. Without routine dental checkups, you won’t know when decay or gum disease start to take hold. Unfortunately, this means that your dental problems may go untreated, which can eventually lead to invasive and expensive dental procedures to save or replace your teeth. Allowing your dentist to monitor the health of your teeth and gums ensures that problems are detected and resolved earlier when they are less difficult and less expensive to treat.
