General dentists prevent, evaluate, diagnose, and treat diseases of the oral cavity, as well as maintain the function and appearance of the teeth.
Many oral diseases and abnormalities can indicate other diseases. A general dentist may refer patients to their physician or a specialist for further evaluation, or vice versa for treatment.
Fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay. Root canals are performed when the nerve of a tooth is damaged or infected. This procedure involves removing the damaged tissue and nerves, and then sealing the tooth to prevent further damage. Extractions are performed when a tooth is severely damaged or infected and cannot be saved.
Orthodontics is devoted to diagnosing, preventing, and correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. It can also help modify facial growth, giving you a more balanced, symmetrical appearance. Crooked teeth can cause a number of problems, including difficulty chewing and speaking properly, as well as increasing the risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
If you're one of the many people who get anxious or nervous at the dentist, sedation dentistry may be right for you. With sedation dentistry, medication is used to help patients relax during dental procedures. You'll still be awake, but will likely feel little to no pain and may not remember much of the procedure afterwards.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that covers and protects a tooth. Crowns are often used to restore a tooth's shape and size, or to improve its appearance. Crowns can also be used to support a tooth with a large filling, or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth. Dental bridges are a great way to fill the gap if you have missing teeth. They're made of artificial (false) teeth and supported by crowns on either side, making them a sturdy solution that's cemented in place.
Dentures are removable substitutes that look and feel just like natural teeth. Whether you are missing all your natural teeth or just a few, dentures can help improve your chewing and eliminate gaps in your smile. They are also easy to care for and keep clean. With proper care, dentures can last for many years.
If you're one of the many people who suffer from sleep apnea or snoring, a sleep apnea mouth guard may be just what you need. These devices work by moving the jaw forward, which increases the size of the upper airway and reduces air resistance. Some models even allow you to adjust the degree to which your jaw is moved forward, so you can find the perfect fit for your needs. And because they're comfortable to wear and easy to use, sleep apnea mouth guards are a great option for anyone looking for a better night's sleep.
Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person's ability to chew or their appearance. They provide support for artificial (fake) teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Dr. Walters is very professional and extremely caring. He impressed me deeply with the thoroughness of the exam and made me feel comfortable. Thank you Dr. Walters and all the staff for giving me such a wonderful experience.
Easy-going, welcoming staff, and compassionate people. I had a great first visit today, I was most impressed with the level of interest in my own needs and the quality care options they have to offer. Armani was wonderful!
I recently had my cleaning done and I just absolutely love this practice and the entire staff! From the front desk administration, to the assistants, to the hygienist, to the doctor- everyone I encountered was friendly, courteous, and welcomed me with open arms. The office was clean and well kept, very up-to-date with technology, and had a gentle, calming aura when I walked in. My hygienist was gentle during my cleaning and I left with excellent results! I cannot speak highly enough of this practice!!! 10/10 recommend if you are seeking a wonderful practice for periodontal needs!
