General Dentists in Brewster

It’s difficult to put a value on confidence that comes from being able to show off a healthy, wonderful smile. If this is your goal, the first two steps you should take are brushing and flossing your teeth on a daily basis, and trusting the care of your teeth to a general dentist for dental exams, thorough professional teeth cleanings, and any necessary restorative work to fix problems.

What Is A General Dentist?

A general dentist is also known as a family dentist – someone who addresses and treats the most basic and fundamental needs of patients ranging from children to adults. Their primary role is to examine and diagnose the dental health of their patients, fix any problems, and refer patients to specialists when it’s advisable. Our general dentists in Brewster also educate their patients about the best and most current dental hygiene habits for preventing possible teeth and gum disease.

How Can A General Dentist Help You?

These dentists can help prevent dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease before they occur, repair or restore problems that have already occurred, and enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile using a variety of restorative and cosmetic services, treatments and procedures.

What Services Do General Dentists Offer?

Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, broken, out of alignment, gapped, crowded, missing, need to be removed or just need to be cleaned, we have services available to address your specific need. These services may be preventative, restorative or cosmetic in nature, but are all available to the purpose of ensuring your long-term dental health. The experienced general dentists at our Brewster office include:

How Often Do You Need To Visit Your Dentist?

It is generally recommended for most patients that they schedule a routine examination and teeth cleaning with their general dentist twice a year. However, depending on your age and the status of your dental health, in addition to other personal factors, more frequent appointments might be advised or required.

How Much Does A Dental Visit Cost?

The cost of a visit to our office can vary depending on if it’s a routine exam and healthy mouth cleaning or if additional procedures are required to address any oral health problems. The cost can also depend on what kind of insurance coverage you have. Our office offers a discount plan for dental care called DentRite® which is not insurance but help make basic dental procedures for you and your family more affordable.

When you come in for your appointment, we’ll evaluate your oral health and create a customized treatment plan for you. We’ll go over the recommendations and the costs with you and gain your approval before starting any treatment. Our goal is to be your partner is good health, and to build a long-lasting relationship based on trust and integrity.

How Can You Make An Appointment?

It’s simple; all it takes is a phone call. To schedule an appointment at an available time and date that’s most convenient for you, just give us a call at (845) 764-9263 and we’ll be happy to get you set up for a visit.

Will You Need to Prepare to See a Dentist?

There are certain things you can do to help us help you, and to make your visit to our office go a little more simply, smoothly and efficiently. What can you do?

  • Show up on time
  • Come prepared with your insurance card or insurance information
  • Have your current and updated medication information, including a list of any prescriptions you may be taking
  • If you have any sense of anxiety associated with your dental visit, please let us know so we can help make you more relaxed and make your stay more pleasant.

Are Dental Visits Required?

If you are interested in a bright, white smile while avoiding dental disease, then keeping your appointments is a great idea. Going to your dental appointments can help prevent tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease and an assortment of other dental maladies that would otherwise lead to potentially painful and costly treatments over a long period of time.
