General dentistry keeps Phoenix smiling with radiant health
A general dentist is a primary healthcare provider for your mouth. You entrust this individual with the care of your oral health, and by extension, its impact on your overall health and appearance. That makes choosing the right general dentistry provider instrumental to quality of life. Ahwatukee/Phoenix area families trust Rashmi Bhatnagar, DMD, MPH, FAGD and her team at BellaVista DentalCare, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry with their smiles.
What is general dentistry?
While some dentists specialize in one area of treatment or a specific age group of patients, a general dentist provides well-rounded care to people of all ages. The general dentist has strong background in anatomy, biology, medicine, and all phases of dental treatment. Continuing education keeps the general dentist current with changes in the field, and provides opportunities for additional training in focused treatment areas. Your general dentist is qualified to provide most of the care you are likely to need, and referral to a specialist for complex situations.
