Does a General Dentist Treat Everyone?
Yes, he or she would treat people of all ages and be their primary oral care provider. General dentists refer patients to specialists when necessary, however, they offer so many services that this does not happen often.
What are the Typical Duties of a General Dentist?
A dentist diagnoses and treats a wide range of dental conditions, although, they prefer to focus on preventing these problems instead of treating them. Family dentists also perform cosmetic procedures to enhance their patient’s smile. A dentist provides patient education as well, explaining proper brushing and flossing techniques and showing patients how to do a self examination to look for any possible signs of oral cancer.

What is the Worst Thing That Could Happen If I Never Went to the Dentist?
