Westgate Smiles isn’t just a dental office. We are a place of learning. Education is a vital necessity in any career, and it’s important to always keep learning. Our experienced team of dental professionals are skilled in all different areas of dentistry, such as orthodontia, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, periodontistry, and general dentistry (also known as a DDS), and is always seeking new ways to keep learning when it comes to your dental and oral health. The medical field is constantly changing and adding new ways to improve current procedures, and it is our job to be on top of those new ideas.
If you are new to the realms of general dentistry and orthodontia, you may not be up to date on what exactly a general dentist is, or how they differ from others in the dental and oral health fields. Someone who works in this field is responsible for many areas of your health, and it is important to understand what exactly those duties are.
