General Dentistry
Dental Exams for Oral Health

A General Dentistry Practice Where
Managing Your Dental Care is the Priority

As a general dentist, I am licensed to practice all areas of dentistry and am your first line of defense against oral health problems. I consider myself the “conductor” of my dental team – creating and managing all aspects of your dental care.

My goal is to help you to maintain the highest
degree of dental health possible.

I am always on the lookout for all the factors that could contribute to deterioration of your mouth and I can recommend the best way to lessen or eliminate those contributing factors through general dentistry procedures.

By performing a complete dental examination, a general dentist can determine the state of your oral health, as well as the state of your overall physical health. And, part of a thorough dental exam is a cancer screening.

Some of The Most Common General
Dentistry Procedures I Perform Are:

  • Cleanings: Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease, strokes, kidney disease and more! Regular check ups and cleanings can help prevent these problems as well as provide you with good oral hygiene. Hygenists are trained to spot potential problems during a cleaning and alert me to take a closer look if something is amiss.

  • Dental Fillings: Of all the procedures I am licensed to perform, dental fillings are probably the most frequent. When there is damage to the structure of a tooth due to decay, wear or injury, a dental filling is often necessary. My general dentistry practice staff is highly intuitive about how much anesthetic you will need to feel virtually no pain or discomfort while having your tooth filled.

  • Bonding: Dental Tooth bonding procedures are a quick and pain-free way to fill-in cracks, chips, re-shape teeth, fill-in gaps, and to improve tooth color.

  • Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a tooth shaped cover that the general dentist places over a tooth to restore its original shape and appearance after root canal or injury. I have performed thousands of dental crown procedures in the twenty five years I have been in practice as a general dentist.

  • Bridges and Partials: To replace a missing tooth, a general dentist often recommends dental bridge work. The dental bridge closes the gap, restores your natural mouth function and improves your appearance.

  • Dentures and Partials: At my general dentistry practice, I want all my patients to be comfortable and happy with their appearance. So, often I create natural-looking dentures when numerous teeth are missing.

Regardless of what general dental procedure you may need, I will always make sure you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible while at my general dentistry practice in the Kansas City metro area. Local anesthetic is always used.
