Family Dentists are not limited to one specific age group like pediatric dentists, they can treat any age person which makes them perfect for families. Since these dentists can treat a wide range of ages they are perfect to take kids to, they can treat them all the way from their first appointment to their last. Since children often fear the dentist, and other medical things, building trust with one dentist is important for their oral health development, and lifelong care. There are many benefits to going to a family dentist, for example long term care builds trust in both patients and clients, they provide a broad variety of care, and they are more convenient.
Convenience is one of the big benefits to going to family dentists, since everyone can go to the same dentist it is easier to keep track of records and appointments. You can also schedule the whole family’s appointments for one big block of time so everyone gets it done in one trip. There are however always drawbacks to everything, in the case of family dentists it’s that they are usually not specialized in any one discipline. If you or your child needs something specific done, like braces or dentures, they might not be able to get them done all in one place.
