General Dentists in Baltimore

A strong, beautiful smile can enhance your looks, increase your self-confidence and improve your quality of life. When you take good care of your dental health by seeing a dentist for routine checkups, you can enjoy the benefits of healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime.

What Is a General and Family Dentist?

A general and family dentist provides caring, compassionate and skilled care for patients of all ages and their dental hygiene needs. Your dentist is concerned with preventative maintenance and your general overall health and provides a range of services, rather than just focusing on one narrow specialization.

General Dentist: What Do They Do for Teeth?

Your general dentist is the dental professional you’ll see most often. They evaluate the health of your teeth and gums through a visual assessment and diagnostic tests, such as x-rays. They perform minor procedures, such as correcting cavities, and more complex procedures, such as extractions or root canals. Regular cleanings are also performed by a general family dentist.

How Much Does a Dental Visit Cost?

How to Prepare for a Dentist Appointment

To prepare for your general family dentistry appointment, you don’t need to do much. Try to show up on time and bring a list of medications you’re taking. You’ll also need to list any medical conditions you may have. When you make your appointment, our general dental office staff will remind you of exactly what you’ll need to bring.

When You Don’t Go to the Dentist Will You Have Dental Problems?

If you don’t get regular dental checkups, you may not be aware that you’re developing tooth decay, gum disease or other issues. General dentists help to prevent these problems through regular cleaning and preventative treatments. They also detect problems early on and fix them before they become more serious issues. Tooth problems don’t get better on their own. Call us today to schedule an appointment, and let our dentists help you to maintain a healthy, strong smile.
