Can You Explain What a General Dentist Is?
A dentist is a medical professional who has a bachelor’s degree and then completed four years of dental school to earn a license to practice dentistry.
What Does a Dentist Do?
A general dentist, also called a family dentist, treats patients in all age groups. He or she will diagnose, treat, and manage their patients’ overall oral health needs. They promote best practices for oral hygiene and educate their patients about how to prevent oral diseases as well.

- Dental Exams & Teeth Cleaning

How Often Should I Visit a General Dental Office
Visiting a dentist general practice every six months may prevent problems, or catch them earlier when treatment is easier. You may need to visit more often, depending on both your oral health and your overall health.
What Do Dental Visits Usually Cost?
It is difficult to quote a price over the phone; there are too many variables. Even a routine filling has options, such as a metal or white filling. Essentially, your dentist will need to perform a consultation first before offering an estimate. Before beginning any work, our dentist can provide you with an estimate if you are paying cash or we can review your insurance to determine your co-pay if you have dental insurance.
How Do I Arrange a Dental Appointment?
To make an appointment with our general dentist in Virginia Beach, all you have to do is pick up the telephone and give us a call. We’ll gladly set up an appointment for you.
How Long Does the Average Dental Visit Last?
The length of you visit hinges on what type of dental work you are having done. A routine exam and teeth cleaning usually takes about an hour, and other work will likely take longer. We will do our best to supply you with an estimate when you schedule your appointment.
How Do I Get Ready for a Dental Appointment?
There is very little that you have to do to get ready for your appointment. If your doctor has prescribed medications for you, please bring us the list. Additionally, we will need your dental insurance information.
What Happens to People Who Don’t Go to the Dentist?
