Dr. Abdelrazek and the team members at Potomac Family Dentistry are absolutely amazing! Most recently, I found myself in the middle of a dental emergency where I was in sever pain. I called the office to schedule an appointment and Tina insisted that I come in the same day. I later found out that I needed a root canal due to an infection and had I waited, the pain would have only worsened. I am forever grateful to be a patient at this practice as every staff member cares about the well being of their patients.
What is a Dentist?
A dentist is a practitioner who treats various disorders of the teeth and mouth, including tooth decay and gum disease. Treatment can involve fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, tooth removal, scaling, and root canals. Dentists help prevent disease through regular checkups and by encouraging personal dental care (like brushing and flossing). All dentists take four years of undergraduate studies, followed by four years of dental school, to become either a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DDM).
