General dentistry covers a lot of ground. When you regularly visit a dentist for cleanings and other preventative health services, like X-rays, that’s general dentistry. Procedures like fillings, crowns, and many others fall under general dentistry as well.

You can think of general dentistry as the foundation of dentistry as a whole. In our practices, we also have the benefit of our doctors having many specialty skills as well so we can see most dental treatments and specialty services right here in house with the providers you already know and are comfortable with!
