Your Smile is the First Impression You Give.



General dentists are the main providers of dental care to people of all ages. At Premier Dental Care your General Dentist is responsible for the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment of diseases, disorders and/or conditions of your oral cavity and maxillofacial area structures and their impact on your overall health. This includes regular checkups, fillings, bondings, and dentures, crowns, bridges, extractions as well as cosmetic dentistry.


General dental exams are usually accompanied by a cleaning. Teeth cleaning is done by a dental hygienist, while the exam is performed by a dentist. If you have good oral hygiene and no history of serious dental problems, a regular checkup and cleaning is recommended twice a year. If you have an ongoing condition, a history of gum disease or other dental issues, your dentist may recommend more frequent appointments.


Part of a dental exam includes checking for cavities, which are areas that have decayed or rotted away a hole in the tooth. If left untreated, the decay can spread. A tooth can become weakened by extensive internal decay and can sometimes suddenly fracture under normal chewing forces. Our dentists will recommend filling a cavity as soon as possible. Only a dentist can diagnose a cavity, although if you suspect you have one due to sensitivity to hot or cold or discomfort, it’s important to schedule an appointment so your dentist can perform an exam.


Fillings are performed by your general dentist with local anesthesia. First, the dentist will clean the affected tooth inside and out to clear away the decay. They will then fill the cavity. Fillings can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, silver, and plastic resin. Your dentist will tell you what is available and recommend a material based on the size and severity of your cavity.


Unlike a filling, a bonding is usually used to repair the outside of the tooth for cosmetic purposes. Bondings can be used to fill an area of decay, but they are more frequently used on a chipped or discolored tooth to normalize its appearance.


Bondings normally don’t require anesthesia and can be performed in a dentist’s office. The dentist will first select a shade of resin that matches the color of your tooth before applying the resin putty on the affected area. They will then mold the resin to the correct shape and let it dry.


Dentures can be an excellent solution for people who have lost their natural teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury. It’s also possible for dentures to dramatically improve your smile and restore your confidence. General dentists can make dentures for patients with many missing teeth or severely damaged teeth that need to be removed.

Since dentures are customized to fit your unique dental needs, your dentist will need to perform a consultation in order to make a recommendation.


Your general dentist will refer you to a specialist when you present with issues requiring specialty care. Root canals, implants, bone grafts, extractions in some cases, osseous surgery, tissue grafts, and orthodontics are some examples of when a referral may be necessary. Premier Dental Care is a Multi-specialty practice and we can refer you to in-house specialists which affords you the convenience and quality of care that this team approach provides.

"I had the hygenist Lynne this past Saturday for my cleaning. She was personable but also extremely thorough, and I think she will help me keep my teeth the healthiest they can be. She took more time to explain to me how I can stop some of the decay in my teeth, and that some of it is probably genetic or caused by stress and things like that. So she was great! The gentleman at the front desk was good at his job but regarding billing and payments, etc. I also had initially made the hygienist appointment with one of the other hygienists and was told that I should have let them know last time. The hygienist I saw previously was the one who put this appointment in the system. If the hygienist makes the appointment for someone, it seems to make sense that you would get the same hygienist. It gives more consistency in the care of your teeth. I have a lot of issues in my mouth or things that may get mentioned to me if I get someone new Maybe if a hygienist puts in an appointment, it should automatically be listed in their schedule rather than in a general schedule. Lynne did make my appointment and I hope I can keep that one next time."

"Maybi is the absolute best hygienist I've ever been to. She's patient, kind, and considerate, and each quarterly cleaning seems like a piece of cake. Dr. H. is personable and caring and I was thrilled they have Saturday appointments when a crown fell out. It's a pleasure to have this dental practice around the corner from me, too. Like good neighbors, Premier Dental Care is there!"

"Doctor H is the best! Great dentist and even better person."

"My son came to see Dr Hassanein while on break from college. He has had terrible experiences with dentists in the past and was anxious going in. Dr Hassanein and her staff were incredibly kind and comforting as they met his complicated dental needs. He loved them and has no hesitancy whatsoever going back. Can not recommend them enough!"
