Dr. Katia Friedman practices general dentistry. General Dentistry is the area of dentistry you are most likely to be familiar with. If you have undergone a scale and polish, a filling or have had dentures fitted then this all falls into the category of general dentistry. A general dentist is someone who is concerned with the care and maintenance of your teeth. He or she will place on emphasis on preventative care as well as undertaking restorative treatments. This preventative approach includes check ups every 6 months and dental cleaning.

Some general dentists are also able to undertake cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry which is concerned with improving the appearance of your teeth, and your smile.
