A general dentist is a health professional who specializes in caring for teeth, gums, and other tissues in the mouth. A dental specialist treats children and people who need special care for their teeth or gums.
The UPMC for You network includes general dentists and specialists. We cover exams, cleanings, and fillings for all UPMC for You members.
