A family dentist is a dentist who has the training and experience necessary to provide quality dental care to patients of all ages, from young children to older adults and seniors. Most dentists only provide care to a specific age group or demographic, such as children or seniors. However, at AlmadenSmiles, Daljit Chhabra DMD, our family dentist can offer complete care for patients of every age, including preventative dental care, restorative procedures, cosmetic treatments, and more. In addition to having the experience required to provide quality care for a wide range of patients, a family dentist also provides the convenience of scheduling multiple appointments for the entire family at once. This can save families a great deal of time and hassle. Our dentist can provide your family with comprehensive dental care that will meet every household member's needs.
The Benefits of Visiting a Family Dentist
- You get the specialized care you need from a qualified dentist. The services you receive from your general dentist will be tailored to meet your oral health needs, and any treatments you get should always be completed safely and effectively.
- It can be more affordable to visit a family dentist than pay for multiple visits with specialists. Family dentists can often take insurance plans to help offset the cost of visits, which isn’t always the case with other providers.
- You don’t have to worry about scheduling appointments at multiple locations or trying to coordinate different schedules for various people. Your family’s dental care can all be done in one place, so you don’t have to worry about coordinating multiple appointments or locations for different family members. This can help everyone stay on the same page regarding their dental care.
- A family dentist can treat people of all ages, including children and teens. This means you don’t need to find a separate provider for each family member – instead, you can count on the same qualified doctor to provide your whole family with the quality care they need.
What Services Do Family Dentists Provide?
Most family dentistry practices offer a full scope of general and family dental services designed to meet the needs of each patient. This includes cleanings, exams, and x-rays. A dentist may recommend fluoride treatments or sealants for children to protect teeth from cavities. Additionally, they can perform standard restorative procedures such as fillings, crowns, and bridges. Some patients benefit from more advanced services such as periodontal therapy and orthodontics. Professionals can even help improve the appearance of a patient’s smile with cosmetic care like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. Patients of all ages can benefit from the comprehensive services offered at a family dental office.
With regular care from a family dentist, you can rest assured that you and your family are maintaining healthy smiles and eating foods that support your oral health.
