Family Services

Family Dental Care Of Geneseo Provides General Family Dentistry for an Ounce of Prevention

Preventing oral health problems is the number one aim of any general dentist, and at Family Dental Care of Geneseo, we take preventive dental care very seriously. That’s why we recommend that our patients visit every six months for routine general family dentistry care that includes thorough cleanings, dental exams, and children’s dental care. While we offer a wide range of restorative dental care services for times when problems pop up, our hope is that routine dental care will keep your need for more extensive care to a minimum.

What goes in to preventive dental care? General dentistry includes:

  • Dental cleanings and hygiene: During your hygiene visits, we remove damaging deposits from your teeth that can cause cavities and infections.
  • Dental exams: A dental exam involves checking each tooth for signs of decay or damage and inspecting your gums for possible gum disease.
  • Periodontal care: Periodontal therapy is employed when you have symptoms of gum disease. Gum disease can cause even more serious problems if left to spread, so keeping it under control is one of our main objectives.
  • Children’s dentistry: Children require special attention to make sure they’re developing properly and to keep cavities from forming during these vital years. That’s why our children’s dental care includes fluoride treatments and dental sealants.

Caring for families from Geneseo, and surrounding towns requires a range of general dentistry options, and you’ll find them at Family Dental Care Of Geneseo. Contact us to make an appointment to discuss your oral health with Dr. Dan Doaga or Dr. Steven Ragan and their experienced team.
