What are the Benefits of Family Dentistry?

Children have different needs when it comes to their oral health. It’s important to have your children visit a dentist who is aware of these needs and is experienced working with children.

A pediatric dentist specializes in children while a family dentist cares for oral health at all stages of life. This means that you and your children can go to the same dentist. That same practice can also care for your children’s teeth as they grow into adulthood, meaning they will never have to switch dentists.

Why do we have to visit our family dentist twice a year?

  • For cleaning You might brush and floss twice a day, but you can still be missing important spots. Our family dentist has special tools that are designed to get into those hard-to-reach spots.
