What does family dentistry mean?
Family dentistry refers to a service provided by a dentist that encompasses all age groups. It is referred to as a Family Dentist because all members of the family are able to visit the same dentist. They are trained and able to provide services in pediatric dentistry as well as adult dental services. Due to their wide range of knowledge across all age groups, patients are able to stay with the same dentist or dental office, from a young age through to adulthood.
How do I choose a family dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends asking people you know as a starting point. Reach out to friends, family and coworkers to see if they have any recommendations. If you have kids, ask other families for their recommendations. You can also ask other medical professionals, such as your family doctor, for suggestions. If you are moving to a new city, check with your current dentist to see if they have any recommendations. Like many professions, dentists have contacts and colleagues they are familiar with in many different cities and can often provide some names of people they have met through networking, through school or attending conferences. If possible, narrow down your list to a few dentists that you think will work for your family, and schedule a meet and greet appointment with them and your family before making a final choice.
What should I look for in a dentist?
Finding the right family dentist is very important to the long-term health of you and your family. You want to find someone you are comfortable with, provides the level of care and information you are looking for, and can fit within your budget. You will also want to know their location and hours, to determine how visits to the dentist will fit into your schedule. It would probably be beneficial to understand how they handle insurance plans – do they direct bills, or do you pay up front? Some dentists will provide initial quotes for more elaborate dental procedures that can be sent through to insurance companies to determine how much the insurance plan will cover, so patients can understand how much they might need to pay for.
How often should I see my family dentist?
Patients of all ages should see their family dentist on a regular basis. Your dentist can make recommendations on how frequently you should visit based on your current dental needs. Some patients will also choose how often to visit their dentist based on their insurance coverage. Different dental services have different recommendations on time between visits, but patients should be visiting the dentist at least once or twice a year for regular cleanings and check-ups, or as needed if they have specific concerns between appointments. More elaborate services such as x-rays need to be completed on a less frequent basis. One thing is certain, dentists look forward to seeing their patients and will always keep you up to date on upcoming appointments. After each visit, you will be given a recommended return time to check on the procedure that just occurred. They always want you to save valuable time and avoid missing appointments in the future.
