Get Involved with St. Jude Children's Hospital
We at Miami Smile Institute love to give back to the community, that's why we would love to have you join our team and help us raise money for the St. Jude Run/Walk on September 23, 2017. Our entire staff will be in attendance and we would love for our patients to join us. We are going to have team t-shirts made special for those who would like to be a part of our team. We will also be collecting donations. The families at St.Jude don't have to pay for any treatment they receive so every penny makes a difference. Join us! You can make a difference in a child's battle with cancer and have fun while you do so. If you would like to know more about the St. Jude Run/Walk and want to know how to get involved, don't hesitate to give us a call today. We will tell you everything you need to know.

The first line of defense against oral health problems
In general dentistry, the dentist is the primary care provider for patients of all ages and is responsible for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (jaw and face) parts of the body. Even though general dentists primarily provide preventative care and minor restorative therapy, they are often able to perform a wide array of other dental procedures, including some minor cosmetic treatments.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients visit their general dentist at least once every six months to ensure proper oral health and functionality. Regular oral health check-ups and maintenance help to prevent the development of serious dental problems that may require more extensive and costly treatments. General dentists are highly educated and trained in multiple facets of dentistry, providing a variety of different services for you and your family including:
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
- Gum disease (Periodontal) treatment
- Root canal therapy
- Teeth cleanings
- Dental fillings
General dentists who do not perform a certain treatment will provide you with a specialist referral.
