What is general dentistry?

At Musial Dental Center, our main priority is the health and proper functioning of your smile. General dentistry, the branch of dentistry dedicated to preventing and treating tooth decay and other damaging conditions, allows our dental team to keep your smile bright for a lifetime. We offer a wide variety of powerful preventive and restorative dental treatments to meet all of your family’s dental needs. We suggest visiting our caring dentist, Dr. Valerie H. Musial, at least once every six months and if you are experiencing any of these signs of decay or disease:


  • Tooth pain or a persistent toothache
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Bleeding, swollen gums
  • Broken or lost dental restorations
  • Swelling in your cheeks or gums
  • Abscesses or lumps in your oral cavity
  • Spots on your tooth enamel


Our goal is to prevent tooth decay from occurring and quickly treat any harmful conditions.
