Welcome to the Dentist Directory Patient Information Center. The information presented is intended to educate the general public on common dental topics. Many dental terms are commonly seen and heard in the print and broadcast media; as well as in our daily conversations. However, many people do not completely understand these dental terms unless they have had first hand experience with them at their dentist’s office.
This information is for educational purposes only and should not be used for self-diagnosis or as a substitute for a professional dental exam and consultation (no matter how much you hate going to the dentist). Each case will vary depending on the needs and concerns of each individual. We hope that this information will provide you with some basic dental knowledge so that you and your dentist can devise a plan to keep your smile healthy and looking great.
