While there are many specialized dental professionals who focus on specific dental procedures, choosing a dentist who can provide General Dentistry care is an essential foundation to continuing oral health. New Westminster Dentist, Dr. Sushma Bajaj and the caring staff at Halo Dental provide complete general dentistry, as well as specialized care, so you know that you and your family will be in good hands for all of your oral health care needs.
What Is General Dentistry?
General Dentistry refers to a full complement of important dental services, including regular oral hygiene care, check-ups, diagnosis of dental problems and treatment to resolve those problems. While a dental surgeon focuses only on treating patients who require surgical interventions and an orthodontist focuses on patients with misaligned bites, or crooked teeth, a general dentist is a highly trained healthcare professional who provides well-rounded care to ensure your overall dental health, which may, in fact, include some of the services that specialists offer.
Your general dentist gets to know you and your unique dental issues and needs, helping you to manage any issues and providing treatment to resolve them. She is your primary health care provider for your oral health, coordinating your care and treatment plan to keep your smile beautiful and healthy.
