|We all know that we’re supposed to visit the dentist at least twice a year. In fact, your parents probably told you this since you were a little child. Unfortunately most adults don’t get a chance to visit the dentist every six months. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, it’s important to find a dentist you can trust.
My name is Dr. Elaine Lu, my office is located at 121 West Colorado Boulevard Monrovia, CA. I understand some people’s apprehension about visiting the dentist, but it is really necessary for everyone in order to maintain good health. That’s right: regular dentist visits help keep your teeth and the rest of your body healthy.
Some people get confused by the different types of dentists out there. There’s general dentistry, surgical dentistry and many other specialty fields. So what is general dentistry? If you’re familiar with doctors and the concept of a general practitioner, that same concept applies to general dentistry. Chances are if you visited a dentist for most of your life that dentist is a general dentistry practitioner. Most of your dental needs can be met by a general dentistry practitioner, though you may be referred to a specialist for some specific issues.
No matter what your dental problems are, you should always start out with a dentist who is skilled in general dentistry. If you need additional dental care, a good dentist has all the resources necessary to point you in the right direction. I have seen thousands of patients at my Monrovia office and will be happy to assist you with any dental problems that you may have.
