Most American families are so overloaded with school activities, sports games, and work that they sometimes forget about important things like going to the dentist. But what if we told you that scheduling dental appointments doesn’t have to be stressful and time-consuming? What if you no longer need to worry about working around everyone’s schedules or asking off of work for two separate days?
When you have a family dentist, life becomes a little less stressful and your smiles become a lot healthier.
The family dentists are general dentists who specialize in children’s dentistry. If you’ve been searching for a one-stop-shop for your family’s oral health care needs, search for a family dentist near you today.
In addition to keeping your family’s smiles healthy, a family dentist offers the following benefits:
1. Having a family dentist makes life simpler.
Scheduling dental appointments for your family shouldn’t be stressful. With a family dentist, you can make one phone call to schedule dental appointments for your entire family on the same day. This means less time off work, less driving, and less stress on you.
When your whole family goes to one dentist, your oral healthcare provider will have access to all of your children’s family dental history. This will allow the dentist to prioritize how your child’s dental issues are treated.
2. Your children are more comfortable.
A family-focused dentist will benefit your children in three ways:
- If dentists cause your child to feel anxious or nervous, allowing your child to observe you interacting with the dentist can put them at ease when it’s their turn in the dental chair.
- The dental office will be family-focused. This means that, when your child walks in the door, he or she will have a play area or a kid-friendly show to watch on tv to make them feel welcome.
- Your child will be able to visit the same dentist throughout his or her childhood, teenage years, and adulthood.
Each of these will help your child form a healthy and positive relationship with the dentist that will ensure they prioritize their oral health.
3. Your family dentist will offer comprehensive dental care.
Because a family dentist works with patients of all ages, they must be specialized in treating a cavity, completing a tooth extraction, fitting a patient for a dental bridge, and everything in between. So, whether you need preventative, restorative, or cosmetic dental care, your family dentist can provide it.
Here are some of the services your family dentist will offer:
- Fluoride treatments
- Dental sealants
- Bone grafts
- Dental crowns
- Root canal therapy
- Dental implants
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
- and more….
Some family dentists also have in-house orthodontists and/or oral surgeons for your convenience.
