Your teeth and gums impact the health of the entire body. Without good oral hygiene and regular checkups, you can get sick more often and increase your risk for diseases. In addition, issues like cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay can cause incredible pain that makes it difficult to enjoy not just your favorite foods, but your whole life. Fortunately, taking simple steps like getting your teeth cleaned regularly, fixing cavities, and having regular dental examinations can prevent gum disease and additional dental health problems. That’s why Dr. Hines provides preventative care and general dentistry services for patients of all ages — to help our patients live life fully. From a child getting their teeth cleaned for the first time to a patient suffering from tooth sensitivity or someone needing a major dental procedure, the highly trained staff at Premier Dental Care will provide excellent dental care.

Painless Dentistry

If you’re afraid to go to the dentist, you’re not alone. Millions of adults suffer from some form of dental anxiety, so Dr. Hines is dedicated to treating patients without causing any oral pain. Whether you have mild anxiety or severe fear, the team at Premier Dental Care knows exactly how to keep patients comfortable no matter what type of dental procedure is being performed. In fact, we’ve earned a reputation throughout Washington as a dental office that can be trusted for providing high-quality and pain-free oral health care.

What is a General Dentist?

The term “general” is often used to describe dentists who provide only the basics and refer patients out for more complicated treatments, but our dental office goes beyond regular care. Dr. Hines and the staff at Premier Dental Care provide a wide variety of services for patients throughout the 20012 area, starting with preventative care like dental exams, teeth cleanings and gum treatments that can keep infections from developing and spreading. Eventually, infections can create bone loss in both the teeth and jawbone, which can lead to teeth falling out. Many adults suffer from some form of tooth loss, which makes preventative health care a necessity — not an option.

Dr. Hines also performs restorative dentistry by fixing tooth injuries in a way that both appears completely natural and makes it possible to eat, speak, and behave normally. The staff at Premier Dental Care helps patients throughout the Washington area keep their natural teeth for as long as possible, which is incredibly important for the millions of adults who injure their teeth every year while playing sports, getting into a car wreck, or injuring their teeth at work. By focusing on restorations, Dr. Hines and the staff at Premier Dental Care make it possible for patients throughout the Washington area to keep their natural teeth for as long as possible.

If a patient does lose their tooth, Dr. Hines can replace it using a variety of modern dental procedures. This makes it possible for adults of all ages to maintain functionality that can only come from having a full set of teeth.

To learn more about what options are available for restoring or replacing your teeth, call (202) 723-2400 to schedule your appointment. Dr. Hines will conduct a thorough exam and make recommendations for what can be done to restore the full functionality and appearance of your smile. Patients throughout DC trust Dr. Hines to take care of all of their dentistry needs because of his commitment to excellence and dedication to his patients.


For the most part, any type of dental care you need can be completed in our local office, and patients from throughout the District of Columbia visit our office because they know we can keep their teeth and gums healthy. But if Dr. Hines sees the need for a dental procedure that’s outside his areas of expertise, our office will refer you to an oral surgeon or other provider. That doesn’t mean the end of our patient relationship, however. After we bring one of our trusted partners into the conversation, we continue to collaborate with them on a regular basis toward a shared goal of keeping our patients in the best possible health.
