What is a General Dentist?
General dentists, also called family dentists, are primary dental care providers who often take care of entire families, making sure to meet all of their dental needs.
What is the Role of a General Dentist?
General dentists provide preventative services, such as routine exams, and offer diagnostic, restorative and cosmetic services when needed or desired. They also educate their patients about oral hygiene and refer patients to specialist dentists when necessary.
General Dentistry Services
A general dental office will provide routine care to ensure their patient’s long-term oral health, as well as suggest procedures to address specific concerns from a toothache to yellowing teeth. Our general dentistry services include:
- Dental Exams & Teeth Cleaning
- Dental Sealants
- Dentures – Complete & Partial

How Many Times a Year Should I Visit a Dentist?
A routine exam and teeth cleaning twice a year can help stop dental problems, such as gum disease, that will effect how long you keep your natural teeth. Catching cavities early, before they begin to hurt, can save you from needing an emergency root canal and catching oral cancer early can literally save your life. Call us to schedule an examination today.
How Much Do Dental Visits Cost?
The cost will depend on whether you are having a complex procedure or a routine exam. The cost is also determined by your dental insurance coverage. Our dentist can offer an estimate of the total cost of any work you may need after an examination.
How Do I Schedule an Appointment With a New Dentist?
If you were wondering where you could find, “a general dentist near me,” all you have to do is give our office a call and we will be happy to arrange an appointment on a convenient date. We enjoy meeting new patients.
How Long Will My Dental Appointment Last?
Your appointment could last anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on what you are having done. When you schedule your appointment with our dentist general practice, we can let you know how long your appointment may last so you can plan accordingly. We don’t want our patients to feel rushed.
Is There Anything I Should Do Before My Appointment?
If this is your first visit, please bring us a list of any medications that you are currently taking and write down any questions you have for our dentist. If you have dental insurance, please bring us that information as well.
What Would Happen if I Never Visited a Dentist?
It’s nearly impossible to never see a dentist in your lifetime. Nine out of 10 American adults have at least one cavity, and without ever having a professional teeth cleaning, you will most likely have at least one as well. When the decay causes severe pain, you’ll visit a dentist. Don’t let this happen to you. It’s more stressful to meet a new dentist when you’re in agonizing pain. Call us today to schedule an examination and begin a dentist-patient relationship so you will have a general dentist in Virginia Beach that you know and trust to call if you ever do have a dental emergency.
