Prosper Dentist: What is a Family Dentist?
Not all dentists are the same. When looking for a dentist, you have to decide if a general dentist or a family dentist fits your needs. Your Prosper dentist, Dr. Vimal Patel, has advice for what you need to know to make the right decision for both you and your family.
What is a family dentist?
Family and general dentists both do a lot of the same work. The difference is that family dentists accept patients of any age, whereas some dentists only accept older patients. Family dentists specialize in preventative care and perform procedures like fluoride treatments and sealants for children. A family dentist has all of the services an adult patient needs, too, and so can meet the needs of anyone who would normally go to a general dentist. Since a family dentist can provide age-appropriate preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and prosthetic dentistry, they provide a lifetime of care for any member of your family. Children do not need to visit a different dentist when they get older and you can always keep bringing your entire family to only one office. A family dentist forms an important part of your overall healthcare team.
Why a family dentist?
A family dentist is a marriage of expertise and convenience. Children are commonly afraid of going to the dentist, so having experts used to dealing with children is helpful. Family dentists also have places with amusements like movies or video games for children to play while waiting for their appointment to help parents. With a family dentist, you can get all of your loved ones' dental needs met at the same office. A family dentist can save time, while also ensuring great dental care for your family, no matter how old it is. Since a family dentist grows with your family, you can build a relationship with your dentist and know that you will always have a familiar, dependable face looking after the dental health of your family.
