General FAQ 6
6. How is my general dentist important to my overall care?
Your general dentist knows your entire dental history, the condition of your teeth, and your future dental needs. He/She is in charge of your overall dental care. We work closely with him or her to ensure you will receive the best possible dental care.
In many cases, your general dentist may do your preliminary periodontal treatment and a portion of your periodontal maintenance afterwards.
