Benefits of Going to a Family Dental Physician

As a parent, your family’s dental needs should also be a top priority. These needs should be a priority for your dentist, too. That is why families should consider visiting a family dental physician so that all of the family’s dental needs can be attended to in one setting. There are quite a few benefits to keeping all of the family member’s dental records under one roof. Here are a few reasons why you should consider a family dentistry practice.


Prevention is the number one way to avoid dental problems. Many times dental issues such as cross bites, brittle teeth, and even gingivitis tend to run in families. When you have all of your dental needs met by a family dentist they will be aware of the genetic dental tendencies that run in your family. This knowledge will allow them to make decisions and offer preventative care options that may be able to prevent certain dental conditions from occurring.

Positive Experiences

When you take your children to a family dentist the benefits are long lasting. Your child will develop a relationship with the dentist that will last into adulthood. This is highly beneficial to your child. It means that they will form a positive relationship with their dentist and prevent dental phobias that have become commonplace in dental offices all across America. This relationship also provides the dentist with the opportunity to monitor your child’s oral health needs and make recommendations as they grow into young adults.

Save Time and Money

A family dentist is especially important in today’s overscheduled world. Trying to schedule several appointments for all of your family members at dental offices all over town just doesn’t make sense. What makes the most sense is choosing one dentist for all of you family members. You will save time and money by not having to make numerous trips throughout the year.


If you need help finding a family dental physician give your insurance provider a quick call to find out what dentists provide family care in your network. If you do not have insurance, ask friends and family for referrals, preferably friends and family that have children the same age as yours. Lastly, you can visit practice in the area and inquire about their family dental services.

    Prevention and a positive experience had been what I was hoping for Dindin and we got it. And her dentists absolutely adore her! :D

  2. This is a good post. I don’t know if it’s because we moved into a home with well water (no fluoride in the bottled water we now drink) or what, but we’ve gone from a family who never gets cavities to everyone having little ones form. If you don’t catch them right away you’re in a world of trouble!! Early detection really is key!
