What is general dentistry?

At Northern Virginia Dental Associates, we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. The main goal of general dentistry is to improve and maintain the health of the teeth and gums. In Springfield, Virginia, general dentistry can include several types of dental treatments. From preventive dental care to restorative dentistry, we are here to meet all of your family’s dental needs and goals. Dr. Winkler, Dr. Charaipotra, Dr. Coulter, and Dr. Kanli welcome patients of all ages, including both children and adults, to visit our dental office and discover how enjoyable dental care can be.

How often do I need to visit the dentist?

Our skilled dentists recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. By regularly visiting our dental practice, you can be certain that we will detect any dental problems as soon as possible. We also encourage you to visit us more often if you experience any type of dental pain. If you notice any of the following symptoms, please call us today:

  • Gums that are tender, swollen, red, or bleed easily
