What is Family Dentistry?

As its name suggests, family dentistry involves dental treatment for the whole family, young to old. And it requires experience and knowledge on how to diagnose and treat oral health concerns as they relate to patients of different ages - especially since the dental needs of a child will vary greatly from that of an elderly individual.

Every life stage is unique in its oral health concerns but, with family dentistry, you have a dental team that can confidently care for the needs of your entire family.

Benefits of Family Dentistry

Having one dentist for your entire family can have several advantages, such as:

  • Convenience. Everyone in your house can visit the same dentist so you can stop having to drive all over Texas to meet your family’s dental needs.
  • Set the foundation for children. When everyone has the same dentist, young children can be encouraged to take a bigger interest in their oral health. This can set them up for a lifetime of good oral health.
  • Grow with your dental team. When your family gets to know our dental team, it is only natural for a bond to grow - and this makes coming to the dentist more comfortable and enjoyable.
  • Comprehensive dental care. A family dentist has a wide range of dental treatments and procedures to address anything that arises, from patients of all ages.
  • Lifelong dentist. Rather than starting at a pediatric dentist and then having to switch as they age out, a family dentist can be a lifelong dentist option for your children.

Can a dentist treat a child with primary (baby) teeth?

Yes, absolutely. It is important for children to see the dentist regularly - even with their primary teeth. This is a great time for the dentist to monitor the teeth and jaw and make sure everything is developing correctly.

How often should my family visit the dentist?

Ideally, your family should visit the dentist every 6 months for a professional cleaning and oral examination. Though, at the very least, these visits should be scheduled annually.

Will dental insurance cover family dentistry services?

Every insurance company is different, but it is common for most family dentistry to be covered, at least in part, by your dental benefits. Check with your particular insurance company to gain a better understanding of your benefits or our staff would love to help make sure that your questions are answered prior to beginning your experience with us.
