Family Dentistry Service

There is a difference between general and family dentistry. While many of the services provided are similar, a family dentist will offer treatments to patients at a much younger age, enabling him to build a relationship of trust with smaller children. This is essential for long-term dental health. Phobias and anxiety that can surround dental visits as an adult often start in childhood. Selecting a family dentist who understands this and works to make patients of all ages feel safe and cared for is one of the most effective ways to instill a sense of comfort with the dentist that lasts for a lifetime.

In addition to providing a safe and welcoming environment for pediatric services, your family dentist should offer general and restorative options for older children, teens, and adults alike. These include:

  • Routine visits for cleanings and checkups
  • Dental fillings and crowns
  • Orthodontic services
  • Specialty dentistry such as TMJ treatments
  • Cosmetic options including tooth whitening and porcelain veneers

Offering a wide range of services enables your family dentist to provide a single office in which your family’s oral health and beauty needs can be met. This ensures your family dentist fully understands all of your needs and can better personalize treatment options to produce the smile you deserve.
