General Dentistry

In dentistry, a General Dentist refers to the primary care provider for patients, in all age groups, who take responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment, management and overall coordination of services to meet a patients oral health needs.


These oral health care needs include: fillings, root canals, crowns, veneers, bridges, gum care as well as preventive education.

Those in the practice of dentistry are known as dentists. Other people aiding in oral health service include dental assistants (dental nurses), dental hygienists, dental technicians, and dental therapists.

General dentistry is best when patients use it for preventive care, rather than for corrective treatment.
