When most patients think of “going to the dentist”, the first things that come to mind are complete exams, x-rays, and cleanings, and fillings if necessary.  In truth, general dentistry is broader. Your Team at West Dundee Dental’s main goal is to prevent, uncover and treat issues at their earliest stages, and develop a customized plan to keep your teeth, mouth and gums healthy. As a result, it is important to visit your dentist at least once every six months.
