Do you take all members of your family to a common dentist, or do you have to go through the hassle of scheduling individual appointments for each one of them? The concept of family dentistry makes it extremely simple and convenient for patients to get diagnosed and treated by the dentist. It also offers several benefits, which wouldn't be available if you chose individual dentists for each dental concern.
What does a family dentist do?
A family dentist is essentially a general dentist who provides treatment to almost all common dental concerns to all members of a family. The patient's age wouldn't be a factor here, as family dentists treat patients irrespective of their age. In simple words, we treat infants, children, teenagers, adults, and aged individuals for all their oral conditions.
What services do family dentists offer?
- Routine consultations
- Periodontal treatment
- Oral cleaning
- Teeth whitening
- Composite bonding
- Gum contouring
- Orthodontic solutions
- Oral infection screening

Why should you choose a family dentist?
- Family dentists act as a one-stop destination for all your dental needs. They would be trained to treat all types of common dental conditions with utmost care.
- The dentist may offer you a price discount once you start visiting them regularly, based on mutual understanding.
- It would be easier to utilize your dental insurance with a family dentist. The benefits you receive could be more compelling.
- A single consultation would suffice for all family members when you visit the dentist for a routine bi-annual consultation. Scheduling appointments, visiting the dentist, getting diagnosed, and treated would be more convenient than ever with a family dentist.
- When it comes to treating younger patients, it could become slightly tricky for new dentists. But, when you visit the same family dentist regularly, children tend to get more comfortable with them, making the treatment easier and more effective.
- Family dentists would maintain a well-updated record of your oral health history, which can come in handy when you develop any unforeseen oral condition.
