General Dentistry

The friendly and talented team at Dental Center of Florence is dedicated to providing individuals and families with healthy smiles for life.

For this reason, our general dentistry also includes preventive dentistry. This means our dentists are eager to provide the proactive treatments you need to avoid costly and time-consuming oral health conditions later on. And we treat patients of all ages, from young children to senior adults.

Drs. Keith Laws and Laura Herfel—your dentists in Florence—also have a talented team of associate doctors in our dental office. This means you and your loved ones do not have to wait to see a dentist or call and hope for a timely appointment.

When it comes to your smile health, we are always here for you—and your convenience matters.

Preventive and General Dentistry in Florence, KY

The American Dental Association has found that twice-yearly exams and teeth cleanings help prevent cavities, infections, and periodontal disease. Your dentist in Florence agrees with these findings. However, if you have an oral health condition like gingivitis, your dentist may recommend a more customized treatment schedule and a more specific oral health routine at home.

Our twice-yearly exams and cleanings include:

  • Oral cancer screenings
  • X-rays as needed
  • Periodontal checkups
  • Comparing oral health changes between visits
  • Dental sealants or fluoride treatments if warranted
  • Thorough teeth cleaning

Our general dentistry practice considers the maintenance treatments you need to restore your oral health—a tooth-colored filling, for example, to treat a cavity, or a root canal treatment to restore function to a damaged or infected tooth. Your dentist can also replace old silver fillings with our tooth-colored options to enhance the appearance of your smile. 

Tooth replacement, if you have tooth loss, is also part of our general dentistry plan. Missing teeth not only impact your self-esteem, but it can also impact your oral health.

Same-Day Dentures in Florence and an On-Site Lab!

We offer small-town hospitality but never skimp on innovative dentistry. At Dental Center of Florence, if a technology or innovation comes along that makes for a better dental experience, our dentists are eager to bring that advancement to you.

For this reason, we offer same-day dentures in Florence for your convenience. Our on-site dental lab and excellent technicians literally craft your dentures while you wait. This means you come into our dental office and leave the same day with a new smile!

We also offer other same-day services and pride ourselves on being a one-stop dental office for our patients. With our team, you do not have to be referred out for an extraction or a root canal, for example.
