General Dentistry

General dentistry is comfortable for all generations when they visit White Family Dental

General dentistry with White Family Dental in Lancaster County is provided to assure the best oral health for people and families at all stages of life.

Our first focus is your comfort and our ultimate goal is helping you to live a healthy life through good oral health. We do this with a friendly home town approach that can’t be found in nationwide chains and yet with five locations; we’re able to utilize the most advanced dental equipment and procedures.

This means that you and your family will benefit from better dental health and more comfort with each visit.

More than fixing teeth, we treat the whole patient. We can provide you with a plan for each member of the family based on his or her particular conditions and concerns. Over thirty years, Dr. White has built a reputation of quality and care that is unsurpassed in Central Pennsylvania. We’re now treating second and third generations of lifelong patients. Let us help you with your needs.

We offer a broad range of general and cosmetic dental services and when we begin with a general dental approach, we help you maintain a foundation of good oral health. We get to know the impact that a condition may be having on your daily life, and we’ll be able to introduce you to a new approach to help resolve or prevent health conditions that until now may seem unrelated to oral health.

Heart disease, diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea and snoring, acid reflux, breathing deficiencies and headaches may all be tied to good oral health and alignment of your jaw. Preventing and treating many of these conditions begins with a general dentist who never stops learning and always cares about your overall well-being. We offer a full range of general dental services as the first step in preventive care.

Some of the general dental services we offer at White Family Dental include:

  • Tooth colored fillings | At White Family Dental, we offer tooth colored fillings because they function, feel and look better than traditional metal fillings. Unlike metal amalgam fillings of the past, tooth colored fillings don’t have the potential negative side effects associated with mercury. They feel more like natural teeth and they’re more durable too.
  • Dental bonding | Dental bonding is a special tooth colored resin that can be used to help repair teeth and make your smile even more beautiful. This treatment can be used in a number of different ways. We can sculpt your tooth to a better size and shape, reduce space between teeth, and repair some damage, like a chipped tooth. Dental bonding is often done without the need of anesthesia.
General Dentistry for children is fun when they come to White Family Dental
  • Fluoride | Our fluoride treatments can help you prevent tooth decay. For anyone who has had some tooth decay, we recommend two professional fluoride treatments each year to help your smile stay strong and healthy. Fluoride helps to make our teeth more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria in plaque and sugars.
  • Sealants | Dental sealants can be used to help protect teeth from bacteria that causes decay, such as plaque.
  • Inlays/Onlays | If you have had a metal filling in the past, we can use one of our high quality inlays or onlays (depending on the type of filling) to replace them. Our inlays/onlays look like your natural teeth, and function great too. They’re better than your old fillings because they fit tighter to help prevent decay at the joint between natural tooth and dental material.
  • Gum Grafting | Gum grafting can be used to treat more severe cases of periodontal disease, and can also help combat receding gums. We always take special care in assuring your comfort and health.
  • ROUTINE CARE | General dentistry begins with a careful analysis of your mouth, the function of your bite and the overall health of teeth and gums. Regular cleanings and preventive care will help you live a happier and healthier life while finding trouble early to prevent toothaches and other problems.

The team at White Family Dental is dedicated to providing you with the best dental care at the highest level of comfort. Call today for an appointment!

I had a great experience until I told my dentist that I have a chronic pain condition and that I take pain pills. I'd had several serious issues with my teeth and read research showing a link between my condition and tooth decay.
I went there one more time for, I think, the third root canal I'd had in just a month or two. It took two hours and typically they try not to do more than an hour at a time. At the end, he told me he wouldn't be giving me pain meds. Every other time, they had. When he stepped out of the room, the dental assistant looked at me horrified and told me that I needed to tell him to give me some and she was completely shocked that he wasn't going to give me any after a two hour root canal. But he refused and said call if I really need them.
I was talking Tramadol for my Endometriosis, but it is not strong enough to deal with tooth pain. At that time, it had been nearly two years since I'd actually gone out to have fun as I'd been bedridden from my pain. It just so happened the day after my procedure, my husband and I had bought comedy show tickets and I desperately wanted to go. So I called and asked for a few pain pills because my tooth really started hurting the next morning. They agreed.
However, when I picked them up, the receptionist informed me that, "this is not a pharmacy" and they will no longer give me pain meds regardless of what procedure they perform. I was mortified as the whole waiting room listened... I just walked out and cried in my car. I'd never experienced that level of discrimination before.
A few days later I got a phone call from them. Suddenly, my pre-arranged monthly payments were no longer sufficient and I had to pay my balance in full before I could return. I'd just had Step 1 of the 2 Step crown procedure and asked if I could please just come in for that last appointment since I had just paid to do the first part. Nope, the second step wasn't immediately necessary so I could wait until my balance was paid.
I know this is a long review, but I'm hoping others who struggle with chronic pain will read this and know to go elsewhere. Hopefully others will feel the same way too. Discrimination of any type is not acceptable, especially in the medical /dental community. I was taking Tramadol, which is a step or two above Aleve- not near strong enough to help with tooth pain. I wish they would have gotten to know me first. They would likely be surprised to know I have my Masters in psychology, refused pain meds for the first three years of my chronic pain, and only wanted 5 pills max, just enough for a day or two and so I could go on a date with my husband for the first time in two years. Also, I really don't think anyone would pay for and go through a root canal for five vicodin or percocet. I've actually worked with addicts before I got ill and to be honest, feigning a need for a root canal would be counterproductive to the addict's need for the "no feeling" high. I'm so disappointed in them, as a person, patient, and therapist.
*I'm pretty sure Dr. White told the billing lady to call me and tell me that my payments were no longer acceptable. I believe he has been fully aware of what happened.
I am not contacting "you". This review was provided to help other people with illnesses or disabilities make an informed decision. No one with an incurable disease should have to face such immature and unethical behavior when seeking care.

No record? Wow... I didn't think you guys would stoop so low as to blatantly lie. And I'm pretty sure I'm not going to confuse the only dentist I've been to since I've lived in the state of PA.

Nice, people, Dr White very nice dr. I received
A call, saying after he n another dr discussed,
I was not a GOOD fit! To get a tooth pulled?
No explanation, except, my health history.
I was not encouraged, to say the least.
People, it is your decision, whether or not to
Pull ur tooth. Sometimes it does come down to money, $3,000 may glibly fly from some folk's repertoire, but for us not able to get able dental insurance, with our health plans,
Its a tossup. D.W.

Smiles n happy, peppy people, yes by all means , DO contribute to a positive dental
experience! I couldn't agree more. :)
Honestly, folks, I so wish those lovely qualities
could translate into cash. But reality, being
What it is, prevented my first plan , to save my tooth, then crown it. I just could not bear to
see my retired husband have to work so hard,
to pay for it. With a broken knee, I also have Post Concussive Syndrome, he takes care of me so well.The rest I still have no knowledge
of . Things are not always what they seem. :)

As matters turned out, he had been fed the
Wrong conclusion, by the first dentist's
Assistant. I straightened it out with the correct facts. We are ,^^^"friends" again. D.W.
