General and Preventive Dentistry

Good oral health should be a priority for everyone. As more and more research shows, there is a direct correlation between oral health and overall wellness. At West Creek Dental, we offer the high-quality dental care your family deserves. Our staff is friendly and experienced, and we pride ourselves on providing dental care with a smile. Our services include care for young children, adults, and seniors.

We do not believe that a high-volume corporate clinic is for everyone, so our goal is to provide a family-friendly vibe with a personal touch—and all the professional expertise you would expect.

We promise to make your experience at West Creek Dental one of the best you have ever had.

The Role of the General Dentist

Much like you turn to your family physician for wellness checks, your general dentist serves the same purpose when it comes to your oral health. Along with the American Dental Association, we recommend preventive care visits every six months. Even if you are not experiencing any specific dental issue, these routine “wellness checks” give us the opportunity to discover problems that are still below the surface.

What General Dentistry Includes

Our comprehensive South Austin dental office provides the dental care your family needs to maintain healthy smiles, including:

  • Dental examinations and teeth cleanings
  • Periodontal assessment and treatment
  • Dentures, including full, partial, and Flexite brand
  • Cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening, veneers, and tooth-colored fillings
  • Restorative care such as dental crowns and dental implant restorations
  • Tooth extractions
  • Invisalign invisible braces
  • Children’s dentistry
  • Emergency dental care with same-day appointments

Prevention Comes First

We work with our patients to build a foundation of good oral health that includes routine preventive care. When you come to our South Austin dental office twice a year, Dr. Poonam Gokhale is able to check the health of your gums and look for dental issues that might be lurking below the surface—especially gum disease and tooth decay. Dental issues that are discovered earlier rather than later are easier to treat—and usually less expensive and less invasive.

We also offer preventive treatments such as fluoride and sealants to further protect mouths from cavities.

Why Choose West Creek Dental

Our one-dentist practice means you’ll see Dr. Gokhale each time you come in. We believe in nurturing relationships with our patients through the years, and that includes spending as much time as needed when you are here. You’ll never feel rushed because we allow plenty of time for each appointment.

We want to get to know you and ensure you are educated about your oral health. The more educated our patients are, the better able they are to make good decisions about their teeth and gums.

We Always Welcome New Patients

If you are seeking a new dental home or if it’s just been a while since you’ve been to the dentist, we are here for you. Call West Creek Dental, your South Austin dental office.
