Dr. Jerry Farrell on General Dentistry
General dentistry is like general car care. Windshield wipers, oil changes, lube oil, filter, my lighter doesn’t work, this light bulb’s out… it’s your basic services that are about taking care of peoples’ every day needs. “I chipped this tooth,”“This hurts,”“My teeth need to be cleaned.“ It’s your basic, first tier about taking care of things. To me, that’s general dentistry. Obviously, there’s more aspects to it, but that’s how I would say it to a sharp 10-year-old kid asking me that question.
