Personalized General Care at General Dentist Burnaby

When you step into Dawson Dental Centre, the warmth of our welcome reflects the care we're committed to providing. Our team of skilled professionals at General Dentist Burnaby is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing your oral health. We offer comprehensive exams, which include digital x-rays and detailed cleanings to prevent dental issues. Our approach to general dentistry is proactive, focusing on thorough check-ups and patient education to avoid future complications.

Our dentists, Dr. Bahar and Dr. Arvan, believe in a holistic view of your dental health, considering factors like your diet, habits, and life stresses, which can all affect your oral environment. By addressing these areas, we engage with patients beyond the dental chair, fostering an ongoing conversation about maintaining oral health as part of overall wellness.

The routine dental appointments are anything but routine when you consider the meticulous care and attention to detail we practice. We aim to catch the early signs of decay or gum disease, ensuring that minor issues don't turn into major concerns.

Cosmetic Enhancements for Brighter Smiles

Your smile is more than just a function; it's a statement. At General Dentist Burnaby, we recognize the power of a confident smile. Our cosmetic dentistry services are designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your teeth, giving you the radiant smile you've always desired.

From teeth whitening treatments that restore the brilliance of your smile to porcelain veneers that disguise imperfections, we personalize each treatment plan. Our attention to the smallest detail means that your restorations, such as tooth colour match fillings, blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing results that are both beautiful and believable.

Restoring Smiles with Expert Care

Life can be unpredictable, and so can the health of your teeth. At General Dentist Burnaby, restorative dentistry is about more than repairing damaged teeth; it's about restoring your quality of life. We provide crowns, bridges, and implant crowns meticulously crafted to restore function and enhance appearance.

Our utilization of advanced dental technology ensures that each restoration is crafted with precision. Whether you've experienced tooth loss or require repairs to existing teeth, our team works tirelessly to provide solutions that feel natural and comfortable.

We also understand that some dental needs are unexpected, which is why emergency dentistry is an essential part of our practice. Should the need arise, we ensure prompt attention and care to relieve discomfort and address the issue quickly and effectively.

Straightening Smiles Discreetly

At Dawson Dental Centre, we know that a straight smile can make a world of difference. With Invisalign®, we offer an alternative to traditional braces, using clear aligners to achieve dental alignment. This modern method allows us to straighten teeth discreetly, without compromising on results.

We've seen firsthand how this technology has improved self-esteem and oral health for our patients. Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, gently shifting them into the desired position over time. It's a transformative process that we're proud to provide as part of our commitment to advanced dental care.

Gentle Pediatric Dentistry for our Youngest Patients

Introducing children to the world of dental health can be a delightful adventure. At Dawson Dental Centre, we treasure the opportunity to welcome young family members. Our team at General Dentist Burnaby provides dental care in ways that kids find fun and engaging, minimizing fears and building trust.

From our complimentary "Happy Visits" for children under two to routine care that grows with your child, we forge positive associations with dental health from an early age. Our pediatric dentistry is not just about today's visit; it's about instilling habits and attitudes that will last a lifetime.

For children who feel anxious, we offer sedation options to ease any nerves. This approach ensures that every visit is as stress-free as possible, both for the child and the parents.

We even involve children in their dental care journey, explaining procedures in kid-friendly language and celebrating each visit with small rewards that leave a lasting, positive impression.

Harnessing Advanced Technology for Superior Dental Care

In the pursuit of providing the best dental care at General Dentist Burnaby, we've equipped our clinic with state-of-the-art technology. The iTero digital scanner is just one example of our investment in technology that enhances your experience and the quality of care you receive.

With digital and 3D imaging, we can diagnose with pinpoint accuracy, craft restorations with incredible fit, and visualize treatment outcomes before the procedure even begins. These technologies not only improve the outcomes of our treatments but also streamline the entire dental experience, making it more comfortable and less time-consuming for our patients.

Cultivating Comfort and Convenience in Dental Care

At General Dentist Burnaby, we believe that dental care should be as comfortable and convenient as possible. This philosophy extends beyond the dental chair to every aspect of our practice. We offer direct insurance billing, flexible financing options, and appointment times that work around your busy schedule.

Our comprehensive new patient package ensures a thorough introduction to our services, complete with a complimentary bite assessment. Moreover, our free on-site parking and reminder systems demonstrate our commitment to an effortless experience.

Is a general dentist the same as a dentist?

Ah, that's a good question! Often, these terms are used interchangeably, but there's a subtle difference. Every general dentist is a dentist, but not every dentist specializes in general dentistry. Here at Dawson Dental Centre, our general dentists, like Dr. Bahar and Dr. Arvan, are the primary care providers for dental health, covering a broad range of services to maintain your oral wellness. They can guide you through preventative measures, diagnose issues, and offer treatment for common dental problems. Specialists, on the other hand, have additional training in specific fields like orthodontics or periodontics.

Do all dentists charge the same in BC?

That's another common misconception. Dental fees can actually vary from practice to practice in BC. We follow the British Columbia Dental Association fee guide, which provides a guideline for pricing. However, it's not mandatory, so some clinics might set different rates. At Dawson Dental Centre, we are committed to providing high-quality care that's also affordable. Plus, we aim to make the financial aspect as painless as possible by offering direct insurance billing and flexible financing options.

What is the average overhead for a general dentist?

Overhead costs for general dentists can widely vary, affected by factors such as the location of the practice, the types of services offered, and the technology utilized. On average, overhead for a dental practice can range between 60-70% of the revenue. These costs include staff salaries, dental supplies, office lease, utilities, and equipment. At our clinic, we strive to efficiently manage our overhead without ever compromising the quality of care we provide to our patients.

Do general dentists fill cavities?

Indeed, they do. Filling cavities is one of the most common procedures a general dentist performs. At Dawson Dental Centre, we take pride in restoring your teeth to their natural function and appearance with fillings that blend seamlessly with your smile. We use modern tooth-coloured materials to ensure your fillings are not only durable but also aesthetically pleasing.

How does Dawson Dental Centre emphasize prevention in dental care?

Prevention is key to long-term oral health, and we take a proactive approach here at Dawson Dental Centre. We emphasize regular check-ups, cleanings, and patient education to prevent dental issues before they become more significant problems. We also perform thorough exams, including digital x-rays, to catch early signs of decay or gum disease, equipping you with the knowledge and tools needed to maintain impeccable oral hygiene at home. Remember, preventive care is a partnership between us and our patients, and we cherish the role we play in helping you achieve optimal dental health.
