5 Benefits Of Having A Family Dentist

Family DentistWe all know the health benefits of regular dental check-ups, but have you ever thought about the additional benefits of having the whole family visit the same dentist’s office? At the office of Dr. Carol Jin, we have put together a list of the top five benefits of having a family dentist.

  • Save On Time & Travel
  • Minimize Dental Anxiety
  • Get Access To A Variety Of Services
  • Track Dental History Easily
  • Learn Better Dental Habits Together

1. Save On Time & Travel

When the whole family visits the same dental practice, it means not having to travel to several different clinics for routine check-ups. You also simplify appointment scheduling. You only have to remember one phone number and travel to one address.

2. Minimize Dental Anxiety

If the thought of visiting the dentist provokes anxiety, you are not alone. Dental anxiety can develop early and become an issue that results in delayed visits or avoidance of treatment well into adulthood. Having family check-ups may help minimize worries in younger patients by establishing a healthy patient-dentist relationship early on.

3. Get Access To A Variety Of Services

A family dentist can provide a broader range of services, making it possible for us to treat patients of all ages. Along with oral hygiene, we can also address cosmetic needs and tooth restoration services like dental implants.

4. Track Dental History Easily

Moving from practice to practice can make it a challenge to track down medical records or keep an eye on changing issues with your teeth. Having one family dentist take care of your entire household minimizes the risk of lost documentation and the hassle of having to start over and explain existing conditions over and over.

When everyone from your kindergartners to your teens, mom, dad, and grandpa all see the same dentist, it makes spotting genetic tooth problems easier to spot early.

5. Learn Better Dental Habits Together

The first step to maintaining good oral hygiene starts at home. Your family dentist provides advice on great at-home care for every member of your household. Together, you can prevent cavities, gum disease, and other serious issues just by checking in on each other at home.
