General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentists like Dr. Lee Lichtenstein provide all of the preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures you need to maintain excellent oral health. He is uniquely trained to both prevent issues like tooth decay and gum disease and effectively treat them

What general dentistry services are available?

Dr. Lee Lichtenstein offers several different types of essential general dentistry services, including:


Preventive services allow you to maintain good oral health by heading off disease before it occurs. Dr. Lee Lichtenstein provides key preventive services include regular exams — often with imaging tests like X-rays, professional teeth cleanings, and fluoride treatments. He also instructs you on how to care for your teeth, gums, and mouth at home with proper oral hygiene habits.


Restorative services address issues like tooth decay, tooth pain, and gum disease. Common restorative procedures include root canal treatment and placing fillings, implants, crowns, or bridges to treat weak, damaged, or missing teeth. The goal of restorative services is to save your natural teeth, or restore your smile when you’re dealing with missing teeth in a way that prevents the shifting of the surrounding teeth.


Cosmetic services help enhance your smile and improve your self-confidence. Common cosmetic procedures that Dr. Lee Lichtenstein offers include teeth whitening and veneers, both of which require you to practice good oral hygiene afterward to maintain and prolong the cosmetic results.

Overall oral health

Part of general dentistry is monitoring how issues like oral infections or jaw problems can affect your overall health. Dr. Lee Lichtenstein is specially trained to assess how your oral health affects your overall health. For example, detecting an oral infection in your mouth early on when it’s easier to treat can limit your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, and identifying jaw problems early can prevent sleep apnea or allow Dr. Lee Lichtenstein to recommend treatment.

Why is general dentistry important?

Having a capable general dentist like Dr. Lee Lichtenstein can save you time and money and keep you from missing work or school with oral health issues that could’ve been prevented. Dr. Lee Lichtenstein is dedicated to keeping your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy using advanced technology and education. Part of the focus of general dentistry, beyond preventive care, is helping you maintain good oral health on your own with proper oral hygiene habits.

Meet Dr. Lichtenstein

A Board-Certified Doctor Caring for the Most Complex Cases 

Dr. Lee Lichtenstein is one of the extremely few dual-trained dentist anesthesiologists in the State of NJ who is Board Certified. Being a Board Certified Anesthesiologist* sets him apart from other dentists and even other sedation dentists who do not have his level of training, certification and over 20 years of experience.

Dr. Lee Lichtenstein successfully manages and treats individuals with a wide range of difficult issues who could not be cared for easily or comfortably in the traditional and conventional dental office setting.

What separates Dr. Lichtenstein from almost every other dentist is that he is a hospital residency trained anesthesiologist. Dr. Lichtenstein completed his anesthesia residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York (one of the cornerstones of Northwell Health in NY) and practiced part-time in the OR at LIJMC for 13 years. Anesthesiology was recognized as a specialty by the American Dental Association.

He is the only member of the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists with an office-based practice in New Jersey. Dr. Lichtenstein is the honored recipient of the 2018 Leonard Monheim Award. (
