General Dentists in Northern Virginia

A bright, healthy smile is an indicator of overall wellness. To achieve healthy teeth and gums, it’s essential to visit a general dentist in Northern Virginia. These dental professionals can help you and your family enjoy a lifetime of good dental health.

General Dentistry: An Overview

A general dentist is usually the dental professional whom patients visit most often. Rather than specializing in one branch of dentistry, general dentists offer comprehensive care to their patients. They help patients maintain their dental health by diagnosing and treating tooth decay or gum disease.

General Dentist: Everyday Care

A general dentist’s goal is to keep your smile in top shape. This involves administering dental exams, polishing and cleaning your teeth, and treating tooth decay and gum disease. General dentists can also diagnose and treat any dental issue that arises, including toothaches or gum infections.

How Long Will My Dental Appointment Last?

Patients visiting our general family dentistry office for routine checkups typically finish their appointments in less than an hour. However, a longer time slot may be necessary if you require extensive dental work. Give us a call if you have any questions or concerns about the length of your appointment.

Why You Should Visit the Dentist Regularly

Seeing a dentist regularly can help you stop oral health problems before they do extensive damage to your teeth.
