General & Family Dentistry

Everyone needs dental care, adults and children alike. At Dr. Devlin’s dental office in State College, patients of all ages can get the important general and family dental help they need, all under one roof. Whether you’re seeing us for a routine checkup or someone in your family has more advanced needs, we know we can offer excellent, personalized service.

How Often Should My Family See a Dentist?

This is a very common question. To enjoy good oral health, we recommend that patients of all ages see Dr. Devlin twice a year, about six months apart. As your general and family dentist in State College, regular visits like these give Dr. Devlin a chance to routinely look for signs of very common oral health problems, like gum disease and tooth decay. Finding and treating these conditions early is vital for good general and family dental care.

If Dr. Devlin finds anything, he will work with you to create a truly effective treatment plan designed exclusively for your needs. Your regular visits to our State College dental office will also give us a chance to clean any extra plaque or calculus away from your gum line. Plaque and calculus are what cause gum disease and cavities. Regular brushing and flossing at home will help you keep your smile clean in between visits, but professional cleanings are still vital for enjoying good oral health.

What Can I Expect from a Visit to Dr. Devlin’s State College Dental Office?

First of all, you can expect a warm greeting from the people at our front desk. You’ll also find that we treat our patients like family. We want to go beyond mere chit-chat and really get to know our patients. Your appointment will begin with a professional hygienist cleaning your smile. Then Dr. Devlin will come by to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for signs of any serious conditions. If you have any questions about what we find, or about a treatment we recommend, don’t hesitate to let us know. We love answering questions about care.
