What Is A Family Dentist? Answering The Most Common FAQS
April 3, 2019
If you’re looking for a family dentist to take care of your dental health, Dr. Bickel of Redmond Art of Dentistry offers everything your whole family needs under one roof. We provide treatment for every member of the family, and we want our patients to be informed about what we do. Here are some of the answers to the questions we hear the most at Redmond Art of Dentistry:
What’s The Difference Between A Family Dentist And A Pediatric Dentist?
Family dentists treat patients of all ages, while pediatric dentists usually focus on children, up to the age of 18 years old. As a family dentist, Dr. Bickel can treat patients of all ages, from infants to grandparents, and he offers personalized, compassionate care.
What Are The Benefits Of Seeing A Family Dentist?
The biggest benefit of seeing a family dentist is that you’ll have an all-in-one dental practice where you, your children, and your entire family can get treatment. You won’t have to drive between dental offices or work with multiple dentists to schedule different appointments. You’ll get comprehensive and preventive treatment in a single office.
This also helps you maintain better oral health. When you see Dr. Bickel for routine dental appointments, he’ll become familiar with the oral challenges facing you and your family, and provide informed, preventive treatments that help you and your kids avoid issues like cavities, gum disease, and oral injuries.
What Services Do Family Dentists Offer?
Family dentists offer general dental care, such as oral exams, teeth cleanings, and fillings. At Redmond Art of Dentistry, we also specialize in restorative dentistry, such as dental implants, as well as cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, with treatments like veneers and Invisalign.
When Should My Child See The Dentist For The First Time?
The American Dental Association recommends that you bring your child in for their first visit around their first birthday, or when their first tooth erupts, whichever comes first. Familiarizing your child with the dentist from an early age has a number of benefits. If you have an older child who hasn’t had a visit with a dentist yet, now is the best time to start! Contact our team for an appointment right away.
How Should I Choose A Family Dentist Near Me?
We recommend visiting any prospective family dentist for an office tour, and to interview the dentist. If you have kids, bring them along! During your visit, you can meet the dentist, learn more about their practice, and ask any questions you may have about oral care for your kids, and the treatment offered by the dentist. Meeting a dentist in-person is the best way to learn more about a dentist and see if they are a good fit for you and your family.
