What is a General or Family Dentist?
A general dentist is an oral health professional who is an educator as well as a person who protects their patient’s dental health. Dentists also help their patients have the most attractive smile through preventative care, and sometimes, cosmetic treatments.
What Does a General Dentist Do?
A general dentist manages the oral health needs of people of all ages. He is she is the first person that someone who needs a checkup or who has a toothache would call for assistance. While a family dentist provides many of the services their patients will need throughout their life, a dentist will refer the patient to a specialist when appropriate.

Why Should I See A Dentist Twice a Year If My Teeth Are Fine?
Your teeth may not hurt, but that does not mean there is nothing wrong. Many dental problems do not hurt until they progress to a stage when it is too late to treat them with a simple solution.
How Much Will My Dental Visit Cost?
Your cost for the visit will is contingent upon the type of work that you are having done. Typically, our dentist is able to provide you with an estimate once he or she discovers the scope of the work that you need done. If you have dental insurance, please let us know so we can establish your co-pay.
How Do I Schedule an Appointment with a General Dentist Near Me?
Locating a general dentist in Virginia Beach who accepts new patients is easy. We would be happy to arrange an appointment for you.
How Long Will My Appointment Take?
The procedure or treatment that you receive controls the length of time that you will spend at our general dental office. While we can usually give you an estimate, your visit may take longer, as our dentist does not like to rush patients out the door.
How Do Patients Get Ready for Dental Appointments?
Most people write down the names and dosage of any medications that their medical doctor has prescribed and they bring proof of dental insurance coverage. Please arrive on time for your appointment.
What Would Happen to My Teeth if I Never Visited a Dentist?
Your teeth could become loose from gum disease or abscessed from bacteria reaching the pulp of your tooth. Neither of these scenarios are pleasant and both involve treatment that is much more expensive than if you had regular exams and caught the problems before they progressed. Please call us to schedule an exam if it has been a while since you have seen a dentist.
