Traditional general dentistry has been fillings, crowns, dentures, pulling some teeth. Things have changed a lot in the last, say 10 years with the advancement of a lot of new technologies in dentistry, general dentists have gone into procedures and techniques that traditionally were treated by specialists. Technology has improved to the point where these procedures have become more straightforward and safer for patients that we're able to do them in the traditional general dental environment. This is important because it's convenient for you, the patient and most patients don't want to go to another office if they can have their treatment done with their general dentist.
I have built a relationship with my patients for many years and they like staying here for as much of their treatment as they can do. There are still cases that we have to work with our specialist and that's always going to be the case, but we can do a lot more than we used to in the past. General dentistry is a traditional way of practicing dentistry, but it is evolving and changing. You will see as time goes on, you're going to see more specialty procedures in general dentistry type settings.
