Dentists are medical professionals who assist and practice in the study, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disorders and conditions of the teeth and mouth. Dental care is best served when the patient takes good preventative care to see to it that oral health is maintained. Consistently seeing a dental professional can help maintain a reasonable level of oral well-being, which may directly impact the overall oral health of a patient. Dental practices consist of more than just General Dentists (DDS), they typically employ or work with Dental Laboratory Technicians, hygienists and office support staff. The overall field of oral health includes orthodontists, periodontists, endodontists, dental surgeons, or oral and maxillofacial Surgeons. General dentistry is practiced by 80% of all dental experts with many of the specialists mentioned deciding to become specialists after basing their practical knowledge in general dentistry. General dental experts care for patients of all ages and they treat patients out of private practices or practices affiliated with a broader medical group like a hospital.
The most common procedures performed by general dentists are teeth cleanings and oral exams, teeth whitening, tooth extraction, veneers, fillings, crowns, root canals, braces or Invisalign, bonding and denture fittings. In order to perform these medical procedures, dentists require specialized facilities, tools and materials. In the modern era, dental practices base their daily operations around electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) software solutions like Eagle Soft, Dentrix and a whole host of other SaaS providers. These dental practice management software systems map patient oral records for hygienists and dentists to record overall oral health and treatment. They also facilitate scheduling and payment presentment and acceptance.
