Family dentists are dentists who have completed dental school and are trained to treat patients of all ages, from childhood to adult. These dentists can serve the entire family, making them a “one-stop shop” for everyone’s needs.
What makes family dentists different from other specialized dental fields is that they’ve focused a part of their dental school training on pediatric dental care and the techniques and approaches that can help a child develop good dental hygiene into adulthood. This allows them to provide specific dental care to infants through 21 years old and beyond through all the unique health challenges that go along with the developing mouth.
Family dentistry is just one of Bright Now! Dental’s offerings of comprehensive dental services, and with flexible scheduling and multiple locations, we make it easy for your entire family to get the affordable care you need, when you need it.
A family dentist is a dentist who is able to offer a variety of services for all dental needs at every stage of life. From young, developing children who need special care to older adults with specialized oral health conditions, a family dentist can help you through the many stages of life and any dental health condition that occurs.
Taking your child to regular cleanings and dental checkups at your family dentistry is important to establishing a lifetime of good oral health. Many family dentists have specialized training in pediatric dentistry, which can help ensure you and your child focus on maintaining good dental health hygiene such as regular brushing, flossing, and cleanings at the dentist.
Family dentists who are familiar working with children are better able to calm anxious children and treat antsy ones, and will often have more inviting waiting and treatment rooms for children, with toys or fun décor. Family dentists can also provide resources, guidance, and treatment options for childhood-specific dental issues like thumb-sucking or baby-bottle dependence.
