What Is General Dentistry?

Similar to a primary healthcare provider, a general dentist is the primary dental care provider for patients of all ages. Your Bourne general dentists care for your overall oral health and are responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of the services required to meet your dental needs.

At Bourne Dental Associates, we work hard to form long-term, trust-based relationships with you by getting to know your lifestyle as well as your oral-health history and goals. Drs. Glavin and Perdomo implement and oversee a personalized dental treatment plan that helps you meet those goals. Most dental treatment plans employ a variety of our general dentistry services as needed.

What Services Fall Under the General Dentistry Category?

Regular visits with your general dentist, Dr. Glavin or Dr. Perdomo, will help you maintain good oral hygiene and aid in the prevention and early detection of serious oral health issues, like gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer. Our dental services include a wide range of preventive and restorative options that can be performed in the dentist’s office and are designed for patients of all ages.
