What is General Dentist?
Many people are unsure about the services that a general dentist provides. While the term “general” is often used to describe people that provide only the basics, the same cannot be said about our dental office. Dr. Don Foster and the staff at The Smile Center-Don Foster, DDS provide a wide variety of services for patients throughout the 37849 area. We start with preventative care and through education, teeth cleanings, and dental exams, work to keep our patients’ teeth and gums healthy and in good condition. This is important because, without preventative health care and regular teeth cleanings, infections can develop and spread and eventually create bone loss in both the teeth and jawbone which can lead to teeth falling out. With the majority of adults suffering from some form of tooth loss, preventative health care is not an option but a necessity.
Additionally, Dr. Don Foster focuses on restorative dentistry so that when a patient injures their tooth it can be corrected in a way that appears completely natural and makes it possible to eat, speak, and behave normally. This is incredibly important for the millions of adults that injure their teeth every year while playing sports, getting into a car wreck, or injuring their teeth at work. By focusing on restorations, Dr. Don Foster and the staff at The Smile Center-Don Foster, DDS make it possible for patients throughout the Powell area to keep their natural teeth for as long as possible.
If a patient loses their tooth, Dr. Don Foster can also replace it using a variety of modern dental procedures. Gone are the days where a lost tooth could not be replaced.

This makes it possible for adults of all ages to maintain the functionality that can only come from having a full set of teeth.
