Dentistry, as adopted by the 1997 ADA House of delegates is defined as “the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment (nonsurgical, surgical or related procedures) of diseases, disorders and/or conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and/or the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body; provided by a dentist, within the scope of his/her education, training and experience, in accordance with the ethics of the profession and applicable law”.
As aptly defined above, these are the services that we offer – diagnosing, preventing and treatment including aesthetics, in anything that has to do with your mouth.
General dentistry today is a field that many individuals and families cannot do without. Frequently involved in diagnostic or preventive procedures, general dentists play very important roles in either restoring or preserving your perfect smile.
General dentists (which form about 80% of the total dentist population in North America) are trained in different schools and after passing their qualifying or professional exams are awarded the DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) or DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degrees (The degrees are basically the same, just different schools using different terms). There are other groups of dentists that are called specialists, who focus on one area of dentistry.
We have certified and professionally trained General dentist’s who are more than ready and able to provide some of the following services for you:
- Prophylaxis: Do not mind the word. It just means preventive measures. You know, you do not have to visit the dentist when you have toothache alone! Our general dentists can give you informed and professional counsel on how to even prevent tooth problems in the first instance. We also provide professional teeth cleaning services. Yeah, much more encompassing than your routine morning and night- which is also very important – But hey, we can boldly say we know your mouth more than you!!! So we can clean it better.

- General Health: Do not make the mistake to think that all that general dentists know is about the mouth. In many cases, the mouth can be a window to the rest of the body. Some diseases are diagnosed via happenings in the mouth. Some other diseases also show signs of recession through the mouth. So general dentists can give counsel on your general state of health based on observation of your oral health. Make sure you listen when they speak.
