A Family Dentist To Grow Up With

A Family Dentist To Grow Up With

For you to enjoy good oral health, even in your old age, you need to have regular oral checkups performed by a qualified dentist. So, as a parent, you must ensure that your children get the necessary oral treatment whenever they have a complication. And although there are so many dentists qualified to treat you and your children, it is always wise to have a family dentist take care of your family’s oral care needs.

The main difference between general dentists and family dentists is that general dentists are more restrictive concerning age groups they can treat. In contrast, family dentists focus on treating the entire family. There are many other benefits of having a family dentist near you that you can grow up with. This article reviews some of the main reasons why you need to have a family dentist.

Benefits of a Family Dentist

Simple Dental Care

Since a family dentist specializes in treating everyone in the family, from the young ones to the elderly, you do not have to hire a specific dentist for each family member. With one qualified family dentist, you will save time and money that may be wasted while setting appointments and driving to different clinics around town. You just set one appointment for all family members. It also becomes easy for family members to see the same dentist from their childhood through adulthood.

Flexibility in Treatment

Since family dentists offer a broader range of oral treatments than their general counterparts, they can treat different oral complications. For example, it is easy for a family dentist to install oral braces for children and make dentures for the old. They can also offer preventative treatments such as dental cleanings and cosmetic treatments like fitting veneers and teeth whitening.

Consolidated Treatment Records

Having a single-family dentist makes it easy for each family member to access their oral treatment records because they are usually stored in one consolidated family file. It also makes it easier for the dentist to track the family’s dental history when recommending treatment. Furthermore, the family dentist can assess everyone’s progress and monitor any developing issues all at once.

Lastly, make sure the dentist you choose for your family has all the necessary skills and qualifications to serve as a family dentist. With the right dentist, your family will always enjoy simple, versatile, and reliable dental care.

  • Just wanted to leave a quick review on Claudia! She is an excellent dental hygienist. She is very thorough with her cleanings, she has a sweet personality and takes the time to explain things to you. I 10/10 would recommend Claudia to all of my friends and family.

  • Could not possibly thank Dr. Houck, Gabby, and staff enough for the wonderful care I receive. In addition to excellent dentistry, their compassionate approach and communication really sets them apart. They are always kind, caring, and take time to explain things in detail. Easy to contact the office with any needs, and they are always quick to respond. Highly recommend.

  • If you’re a believer in good vibes and positive energy then this is the place for you. Everyone here is so warm & inviting. They really do feel like family, ya know, the ones you actually like! I’ve been going here for years but when I had my daughter, there was no question about where i would take her for her dental needs. They are so great with her and she is never nervous when we go because they just radiate positivity and make her feel so calm and relaxed. I can’t recommend them enough. Oh, they are also really great with Botox 😉

  • We love IHDC! They do everything possible to ensure our safety, and Alaine is an absolute gem! She treats my daughter with the patience of a saint and we love her for it! The whole team is amazing!

  • My hygienist was Claudia, and I now have a best friend forever. She was so welcoming and kind, put me completely at ease, walked me through all of the procedures, costs, and reasons why, and introduced me to everyone who walked in or by the door. Dr. Smith was equally as helpful and amazing. Every person went out of their way to ensure my comfort and understanding. I NEVER write reviews, and was so impressed that I couldn't wait to get home and write one!

  • Amazing place. Started taking our family there in 2014. Professional, kind, and most importantly excellent at every level of service.
