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. Bouali, 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

Going to the dentist is never enjoyable but the staff at Fresh Dental made my visit as enjoyable as it could have been! The office was super clean and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable! I called with an emergency and they were able to get me in first thing the following morning. They talked me through the whole procedure and always stopped to make sure I was okay! I would definitely recommend this office and the professionals there!
