Why should I choose a general dentist?

When it comes to your oral health, finding the right dentist can make all the difference. As an adult or parent with adolescent children, you may find that a general dentist, instead of a pedodontist (children’s dentist) or other specialist, would be a perfect fit for your family’s oral care needs, as well as your busy schedule!

Dr. Abbey Lee and the team at Smiles 4 Grant Park, in Atlanta, GA, always provide personalized dental health care. Clinically, we offer comprehensive dental care for our patients, beginning at the age of 13. This means, Dr. Lee will listen to you, ask questions, and after a thorough examination of your mouth and review of your records and x-rays, she’ll explain her findings and recommended treatment plan created specifically to suit your needs.

Best of all, When you enter our offices, you’ll become part of our family. We will respect, honor, and cherish you as we do our own family members. We always want the very best for our patients!

Here are some benefits you can expect when choosing Dr. Abbey Lee as your family’s new general dentist.

A Wide Variety of Services

Much like your general practitioner of medicine, a general dentist provides a range of services. Your general dentist should be equipped and trained to address all routine dental health treatments, as well as emergencies, cosmetic dental issues, and any special needs or requests you have. 

The ability to meet all of your dental health needs in one office is a significant benefit of choosing a general dentist. You’ll always feel more comfortable and relaxed when you become familiar with your dental team. Going to an unknown specialist can feel intimidating, in addition to being time consuming and in some cases, more expensive.

Dr. Lee provides preventative, diagnostic, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services, including:

  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Emergency Dental Treatments
  • Routine Dental Cleanings and Exams
  • Laser Dentistry
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Dental Bonding
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Gum Contouring
  • Dental Crowns
  • Dentures
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Implants
  • Tooth-Matched Fillings
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Dental Extractions
  • Invisalign

Personal Relationships Improve Care

When patients are comfortable with their dentist, they are more likely to begin open discussions about health issues or concerns. Dr. Lee believes in building relationships of trust and respect with her patients so that she can provide excellent dental care. Understanding a patient’s needs improves our ability to provide thorough and gentle care.

Convenience Makes Dental Visits Easier

As your general dentist in Atlanta, Dr. Lee can perform or provide a range of services and in many cases combine treatments into one appointment. For instance, we can offer checkups and cleanings in one visit, for patients who attend preventive appointments every six months. In addition, we can schedule your family’s appointments on the same day to save time.

Preventive Care and Early Detection Support Great Oral Health

Studies have found that many links exist between oral health and overall physical health. Having good oral health supports physical health and mental well-being. 

Maintaining good oral health long term requires early detection and preventative treatments. Routine dental cleanings and checkups with your general dentist will reduce your chance of developing these issues:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Gingivitis 
  • Oral Cancer
  • Tooth Loss
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes

We Will Coordinate Multi-disciplinary Treatments for You

When you see a general dentist you trust, you’ll have a professional on your side who knows the best options for your dental health. Though Dr. Lee provides many dental services, in special cases, a patient may need treatment from an oral surgeon or other specialist. Should this happen, our team will know exactly where to send you. 

The team at Smiles 4 Grant Park has great relationships with other dental specialists in the area. If you should ever need specialized treatments like oral surgery, we will help you connect with the right doctor. 
If you have any other questions about choosing a great general dentist, the team at Smiles 4 Grant Park can help. Our experienced dental team provides gentle dentistry treatments with a smile. We work to make sure each patient receives personalized dental care in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Visit Dr. Abbey Lee at our offices in Atlanta, GA.
