Charlotte General Dentists
General dentists are licensed to practice all areas of dentistry and are the creator and manager of the dental treatment plan. A dentist will perform a general dental examination to determine the patients’ oral health. This allows identification of all factors that contribute to the deterioration of oral health.

All general dentists have the goal of providing and maintaining the highest degree of oral health possible for that patient. Treatment planning aims to:
- Find all of the factors that contribute to deterioration
- Determine the best method to eliminate each factor causing deterioration
Records taken during a general dentist’s assessment include:
- A thorough health history
- Soft tissue examination
- Periodontal examination
- A set of individual x-rays (Radiographs)
- A panoramic x-ray
- X-ray of the TM joints
In addition to teeth cleaning, a general dentist provides a variety of restorative services. General dentists might refer patients to specialists, including orthodontists, when their individual expertise is required.
