What are the benefits of a family dentist?
Seeing a family dentist has many benefits. It makes getting dental care easier for your family since it is all under the same roof. Family dentists build relationships with their clients. It is easier and more common to feel comfortable with a family dentist. It is also useful for one dentist to see everyone in your family, because they understand your oral health and genetics better.
Why is family Dentistry important for oral health?
Family dentistry is important for your oral health because it creates and protects the foundation of your teeth and gums. Family dentists keep your teeth healthy for all of your life.
How do I choose a family dentist?
The best way to choose a family dentist is to choose someone who you and your family feel comfortable with. Learn about their certifications, past history in the community, and more by asking the office staff. It is useful to get referrals from friends or family to find a reputable family dentist.
When should I bring my child to the dentist?
The sooner the better! We recommend scheduling your child’s first dentist appointment within six months of their first primary tooth growing in. This way, we introduce good oral hygiene habits early on and help them get used to seeing a dental professional regularly. For our younger patients, we typically provide an exam of the teeth, gums, and jaws to track development and can even provide a gentle cleaning if necessary.
