What Is Family Dentistry?
The term “family dentistry” often describes a field of dental care that essentially involves treatments designed to help patients of any age. These treatments are typically what is considered routine and preventative procedures that prioritize oral health maintenance as well as care for common problems such as cavities and gum disease; however, many restorative dentistry options can also be thought of in the realm of family dental care. While the terms “general dentistry” and “family dentistry” are often interchangeable, family dentistry typically indicates a strong emphasis on providing treatment in addition to comprehensive educational tools that can help both children and adults improve their oral health regimens and establish habits that can produce healthy teeth and gums long into the future.
How Do You Choose a Family Dentist?
When choosing a family dentist, there are a few prominent things to look for that can be helpful in the decision-making process. One of the most beneficial aspects of family dental care practices is that you can often find a thorough selection of treatment options that offers individuals a convenient and efficient way to meet the dental care needs of their whole family. This is particularly important for busy parents who are looking for dental care offices that provide a full spectrum of treatment options for their children and themselves, allowing them to obtain the care they need in one location. This is why Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry has made it a top priority at our practice to offer an extensive menu of dental services right here at our office—we rarely need to refer patients to another practice for specialized care.
Another aspect of a good family dentistry practice is the environment the dental team has created and the approach to care they employ. Our dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and administrative team are all committed to fostering an atmosphere of safety, comfort, and positivity for all of our patients, especially children. We strive to alleviate anxiety about the prospect of dental treatment and help individuals of all ages enjoy the best possible experience.
