General Dentistry in Lakeland, FL
Just like your primary care physician manages all your medical needs, a general dentist oversees all your dental needs. The benefit of choosing a general dentist in Lakeland, FL is that you know you have one trusted professional you can turn to with any questions or concerns you have.
At Quality Dental Care, we are general dentists; but you also have the benefit of receiving advanced services from Dr. Zaman who has the extraordinary privilege of specializing in three areas – prosthodontics, periodontics, and oral surgery. For this reason, we rarely need to refer our patients to a specialist, and you can usually receive all the care you need right here in one convenient location.
What Does General Dentistry Include?
General dentistry includes preventive treatments to keep your smile healthy and services to restore your smile if something goes wrong. These include but are not limited to:

Maintaining Your Healthy Smile
Dr. Smith and Dr. Zaman focus on preventive care such as cleanings and exams because they are the easiest and most economical ways to ensure excellent oral health. Gum disease and tooth decay can take their toll on your oral health before you even know they exist, and these routine visits allow us to treat these problems before they do long-term damage to your oral health.
Finding and treating problems in their earliest stages also allows us to provide conservative options rather than waiting until the problem becomes serious, requiring costly and complex procedures to resolve.
How We Use Technology to Educate
We can tell you what’s wrong, but we also believe it’s important to educate you about matters that affect your oral health. For this reason, so we have invested in technology like digital dental x-rays and intraoral cameras that allow you to see what we see during an exam.
As we direct the small intraoral camera over your teeth, the images appear in real time on your chairside monitor. This makes it easy for our doctors to point out problem areas, explain your treatment options, and help you make an informed and confident decision about your care.
Digital dental x-rays are valuable because we can see and treat small problems long before they damage your oral health and cause discomfort.
