When you see or hear the terms “general dentistry” and “general dentist,” you may find yourself wondering, “How does a general dentist differ from other oral health professionals?” or “Do I need to see a general dentist regularly?” The answers to these questions are key in helping you make the best decisions about your oral health care. As your Concord, NC general dentistry practice, the staff at Fresh Dental and Drs. Amit Ganglani, Joti Johal, and Richard Dunning want to make sure you know everything about general dentistry that you need to in order to enjoy a lifetime of optimal oral health.
What Is General Dentistry?
Similar to a primary healthcare provider, a general dentist is the primary dental care provider for patients of all ages. They 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 Fresh Dental, 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. We then 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 general dentists Drs. Ganglani, Johal, and Dunning 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. Our services include:
- Digital x-rays
- Dental fillings
- Fixed and removable bridges
- Inlays and onlays
- Oral cancer screenings
- Root canal therapy
- Tooth extractions
- Wisdom teeth removal

Had my second appointment this month and so far they have been a wonderful staff by showing that they care about not only the needs of patient but also asking if there’s anything in particular we want done. I’m overall satisfied with my visit and happy I’ve found a dentist who cares. Thanks!
Had an impromptu root canal this morning with Dr.Dunning and staff. They always take great care of me and fit me in last minute. Clean, Comfortable and Friendly office. From reception to root canal, great experience.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Patel and her staff today at FreshDental in Concord. I was very anxious about the appointment and any procedure, but Kimmie Bryant was very patient with me and spend a lot of time trying to calm me down and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Patel is very professional and has a naturally lovely personality. She takes the time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and her staff. A very pleasant visit indeed! I would definitely be back and would highly recommend the place for Dental work. - Erce Cobile
