Regular routine check-ups are essential for your overall health. Patients should always seek a healthy relationship with their teeth.
At Sutherland Dental, our philosophy is to collectively support you and commit to your oral health goals. General Dentistry visits typically involves a check-up, with the option of further treatment for gum treatment or tooth filling.
Our experienced dentists will perform a full examination of your mouth, with a possible future treatment plan depending on your results.
