Someone who can treat the whole family for their dental health is called a Family Dentist. Family dentists are similar to regular dentists in that they must go through the same schooling, but they also undergo additional education that allows them to treat people of all ages. Pediatric dentists are limited to only servicing children, unlike that, a family dentist can treat anyone at any age which makes them perfect for families. Since these dentists can treat children, adults, and seniors they can provide life-long care to your children.
Going to a family dentist can provide all sorts of benefits. These dentists are trained to examine, diagnose and treat children, adults and the elderly. They can complete all the typical services, such as cleaning, flossing, x-rays and performing check-ups. They can also whiten teeth, fill cavities, add sealants and they often can perform orthodontic procedures, such as adding braces, implants or dentures. This also makes it easier on the children, since they are sometimes fearful of the dentist, it can build a relationship to last a lifetime. Long term care builds trust in both the patient and dentist, they provide a wide-range of services, and are more convenient for families.
