The ABC’s of Family Dentistry
If you have a family, the best way to be sure everyone is receiving the best dental care is through the services of a family dentist. A dentist who can take care of everyone in your family, kids and adults alike, can help provide a cohesive treatment plan that takes your family’s needs and schedule into consideration.
The Advantages of a Family Dentist
Many dentists specialize, focusing on adults, children, or elderly people. A family dentist will treat patients of any age, performing necessary work like regular cleanings, restorations, fluoride treatments, sealants, and anything else patients might require. With a family dentist, you can schedule your whole family for appointments close together or even on the same day. This helps free up your time and makes it easier for you to be sure your family gets the best possible dental care.
A family dentist also has special experience with children. It’s important for your kids to feel comfortable at the dentist so they won’t develop dental anxiety in the future. A good dentist will talk to your kids to be sure they understand what’s happening, and will be sure their office and their waiting room is kid-friendly. If there are elderly members of your family, a family dentist will also be able to help with their particular needs. This can include tooth replacement, restorations, and dealing with bone atrophy.
Finding the Right Family Dentist
Choosing a family dentist is a process important enough to take some time with. You want to be sure to find someone who is qualified to handle both adult and pediatric dentistry, and who can relate well to your children. An excellent way to find a dentist that will fit your family is through referrals. If a friend or another family member in the area has a dentist they particularly like, give them a try.
Another way to find a good dentist is to research online. Look for a dentist who advertises as a family dentist, and whose experience and training backs this up. A consultation before you make an appointment can also help you assess the office environment and how good a fit the dentist will be for your family.
