I'm a general dentist. What that means is I see little kids, I see geriatric patients, and everywhere in between. That's the fun part of my job. I enjoy working with children, and then I enjoy working on the grandparents, too. It's fun.
In my office, we do fillings—we do white fillings. I have really competent hygienists that are very enthusiastic about keeping people's teeth clean. That treatment can vary from a simple, regular cleaning to more of a deep scaling and root planing. Also, we provide laser periodontal therapy. The results are good, it helps people. They also are—I call them my cheerleaders. They point out areas that you need to work on with flossing and brushing better. They help you with your brushing technique.
In dentistry, it's all about preventing tooth loss, preventing gum disease, preventing bone loss, attachment loss—that’s what we want to avoid. My hygienists keep my patients out of my chair.
Our general dental care will:
- Keep your smile in top condition
- Help keep your mouth free of tooth decay and gum disease
- Improve your overall health as well as your oral health
