General Family Dentistry is the foundation of our practice at Vassey Dental Partners. We provide quality, comprehensive care for the entire family. Our goal is for all of our patients to have optimum dental health for a lifetime.
The goal of general dentistry is to treat problems in their earliest stages by establishing a regular schedule of dental cleanings and exams. Our dentists recommend an oral health routine to each individual patient to suit their needs and goals. Some patients may benefit from more regular visits while others may only need to visit every six months.
Identifying problems in the early stages allows us to recommend the most conservative methods for treatment, preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible and saving the patient from expensive and uncomfortable procedures. It is estimated that over 75% of the adult population has some form of gum disease. Routine examinations can help prevent gum disease by treating problems that could lead to gum disease.
Setting habits early is critical for establishing long term dental health. We begin seeing children for routine pediatric dental care at three years of age and continue to treat patients well into their golden years.
Your First Visit
For adult patients, we feel that the initial appointment should be for a comprehensive oral exam. It is important that we have enough time to review your medical and dental history and check all of your teeth for decay and defective fillings, examine your mouth for oral cancer and periodontal disease and take the necessary diagnostic x-rays. After the dentist has diagnosed the results of your exam, we will see you for a consultation appointment at no additional charge to discuss our findings and to outline recommended treatment, the amount of time for your treatment and the cost of treatment.
Our patients often comment on how thorough and comprehensive our examinations are. We emphasize the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment planning for the most successful results. Schedule your appointment today and experience the difference in dental care at Vassey Dental Partners.
