General dentistry involves caring for oral health, preventing oral health conditions and diseases. At Family Dental Wellness, we use preventative care and patient education to promote a healthy smile for life. Dentists are also responsible for diagnosing conditions that affect the mouth, teeth, gums and jaws, as well as develop the most effective treatment plan with the patient’s best interests in mind.
General dentists must take national and state certification exams to achieve licensure for providing complete examinations, cleanings, root canals, restorations, extractions and tooth prosthetics. At Family Dental Wellness, our general dentists and team of hygienists and technicians focus on preventative care. We recommend visiting our office twice a year for a cleaning and exam so that we can provide the best dental services. Routine exams will help us identify possible oral problems and health conditions.
