General Dentistry focuses on providing primary dental care and services to patients of all ages. General Dentists serve as the first point of contact for patients seeking oral health services, and they are responsible for diagnosing, treating, and managing a wide range of dental conditions and maintaining the overall health of their patients. Regular visits to a General Dentist are essential for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems. It is generally recommended to have a dental check-up every six months, although the frequency may vary based on the individual needs and oral health conditions.
The following services provided by our UT Dentists’ General Dentists include but are not limited to the following:
• Dental Examinations
• Preventive Dentistry
• Restorative Dentistry
• Dental X-rays and Diagnosis
• Dental Education
• Emergency Dental Care
While General Dentists are skilled in providing a broad range of dental services, they may also refer patients to specialists, such as endodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, or prosthodontists for specialized treatments when necessary.
