Finding a great, local general dentist is important. Your general dentist will provide you with regular dental services, necessary for your oral and overall health. It is recommended that you visit your general dentist at least twice per year for your dental cleaning and examination.
General dentists often provide a variety of services including:
- Dental Cleanings
- Teeth Whitening

There are things to consider when finding a general dentist. Consider what is important to you as a patient. Do you want a dentist that can provide preventative care for your entire family? Are you looking for a dentist that accepts dental insurance? Maybe you want someone who has evening hours and is located close to your home. Consider your personal needs when choosing a dentist.
It is always recommended that patients find a “dental home”. A dental home, is the dental office that you feel most comfortable and visit often. Having a dental home, will help you receive regular recommended care. It will help you have a dentist that knows your health history and can provide you with regular oral cancer screenings and more.
