Family Dentistry

A family dentist provides comprehensive care for patients of all ages, from children to grandparents.

They often provide many specialized services at the same office, from root canal therapy to braces. 

When would I need to visit a family dentist?

Specialized Care For Every Member of Your Family

Pediatric and Senior Care

While general and family dentists often provide the same basic dental care, family dentists provide care for children, adults, and seniors. In contrast, many general dentists prefer not to treat seniors or children. 

Convenience

Because family dentists provide care for every member of your family, you can schedule all of your loved ones' appointments through the same office. For a busy parent, this saves time and money.

Multiple Specialties

Because your dental health needs change as you age, every family member may require different kinds of care. To accommodate all needs, a family dentist may have multiple specialties or work with different specialists at their office.

Tools of the Trade

General dentists and family dentists rely on many of the same tools and technological innovations, including: 

  • Digital x-rays
  • Probes
  • Mouth mirror
  • Local anesthesia
  • Forceps
  • Handpieces

Depending on the dentist, certain tools may be traditional or laser-based. For example, many dentists use Waterlase as gentler and more precise alternative to traditional drills. 

Convenience, Savings, and Healthy Smiles

Choosing a dentist who offers treatment for every member of your family can save you considerable time, money, and stress. Reach out today to schedule a consultation with a family dentist.
