Dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body. A general dentist is licensed to practice in all areas of dentistry.
The ultimate goal of general dentistry is optimum oral health. By performing a complete dental examination, we can determine the overall oral condition. We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan and may incorporate a variety of restorative procedures to help repair the effects of tooth decay, trauma, defect or disease and to prevent further decay or disease.
Although general dentists are licensed to practice in all areas of dentistry, we sometimes refer to specialists in order to obtain the best possible result.
Specialists in private practice in the Tri-City area include:
- Oral Surgery
Sometimes, the problems found in patients are too severe and have gone too long to expect a complete return to ideal health. The sooner we find and can treat poor oral health, the better the outcome and less the cost to the patient.
