What is the role of a dentist in the community?

Dentists play an important role in the community by providing essential oral health care services. They are responsible for diagnosing and treating a variety of dental conditions, such as cavities, gum disease , and tooth decay. Dentists also provide preventive care, such as regular cleanings and fluoride treatments, to help patients maintain healthy teeth and gums. Additionally, dentists can provide cosmetic services , such as teeth whitening and veneers, to improve the appearance of a patient‘ s smile. By providing these services, dentists help to ensure that individuals in the community have access to quality oral health care.
