Family and General Dentistry:
Dental Care for the Whole Family
General Dentistry is the foundation for good oral health. Along with excellent, personalized care and service it is our goal to provide optimal dental health for each patient. We will work with you to develop a customized dental hygiene program consisting of dental examination (soft tissue examination and 6 point periodontal examination), teeth cleaning, x-ray and the use of other diagnostic equipment or procedures to uncover, prevent or treat problems in the early stages before they progress. A variety of restorative dental procedures may also be recommended to help prevent or treat decay or disease of the teeth, mouth, gums and tongue.
Building a foundation of trust is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and pleasant experience. We will educate you so you can make your own informed decision on any recommended treatment plans. As one of our guests, your individual dental needs and concerns are personally addressed by Dr. Althauser and Dr. Olsen and their caring and knowledgeable staff. Remember that routine cleanings, flossing, and fluoride are all advantageous in preventing dental disease.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you visit your family dentist for a checkup a minimum of two times each year. Smile Missoula works very closely with your insurance company to make sure that you receive maximum benefits from your dental plan.
