Discover Ways to Enjoy Your Best Smile
General dentistry does include regular checkups, but there’s so much more to it than just regular checkups. We can restore entire smiles and rebuild a mouth that has problems for whatever reasons, whether it’s trauma, accident situation. I’ve been here on a weekend with someone who’s having pain and I get them out of pain, and that’s a long ways from our regular checkup, but something can happen, and it doesn’t always happen 8-5. It’d be more convenient for all of us, but that’s part of being a general dentist. A general dentist does everything. There are certainly are some situations that are complex, and we have dental specialists that support us and help us out. We have a great network of specialists that I can use when I need to. We do so much here that many times people don’t need to see specialists because we’ve got the skill and the expertise from all of the learning, and classes, and experience that we’ve got that we can take care of things here in the office. Certainly general checkups are part of it, and they’re important, because we can find a problem when it’s small and take care of it when it’s easier, which is much more pleasant for the patient, and easier for everybody involved, but sometimes there can be something that wasn’t seen initially, and we can take care of that. That’s where our skills and expertise is wonderful. We can really help people.
