Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Family Dentistry?

Our practice is set up to address the dental care needs of all ages. Your family dentist gets to know your family's habits and medical needs and gets to advise the family collectively on shared dental values and care.

Why Choose a Family Dentist?

In our experience, one person who coordinates in most families organizes the dental appointments and advocates for all dental habits. By having a family dentist, your dentist gets to know the medical and dental needs of the whole family. You are collectively advised to incorporate good dental habits and hygiene into your lives. It also helps with those members of the family who may be suffering from a little dental anxiety.

What Services do Family Dentists Offer?

We see children as young as two years old in addition to teenagers with their specific needs for sport mouth guards, proper dental education, and in some cases, Invisalign or referral to an orthodontist for more involved cases. We take care of younger adults and mothers who may be expecting. We work around home and work schedules. More elaborate care, such as fillings, crowns, and implants, are provided on-site.

We take of the grandparents and their dental needs, whether it is routine checkups or partial dentures. We are available for emergency dental care of the family members, whether it is the result of an accident from a sporting event, chewing on hard objects, or toothaches. We are also here to get the family members ready for special events or occasions such as proms, graduations, weddings, and work events by providing in-office tooth whitening, filling in the missing teeth with implants or like, or even incorporating veneers to provide a more beautiful smile.

How Often Should Family Members Have Dental Check-Ups?

Yes, they are.

Do Family Dentists Offer Pediatric Dentistry Services?

Family dentists do provide basic services to children. However, for more specific needs, the family dentist refers the child to the Pediatric Dentist.

What is Preventive Dentistry, And Why is it Important For Families?

During preventative care, all plaque and calculus are removed. Proper brushing and flossing are reviewed with the patients. More importantly, your teeth and your mouth are examined for anomalies, and in case any issues are discovered, they are addressed before they become more extensive dental problems. Every individual needs to keep up with their Preventative care visits.

Are Family Dentists Experienced in Working With Anxious or Fearful Patients?

In our practice, we have seen many patients that started with dental anxiety. We explain and provide care at a rate that the patient is comfortable with. Many have returned and feel quite comfortable with our staff.

Are All Family Members Scheduled Together?

It depends on the family. When multiple young children are involved, we advise parents to attend or break the family visits into multiple visits.
