There are so many different types of medical professionals out there that it can be difficult to determine what kind of doctor you and your family should see. And that includes dentists. For patients with families, choosing a family dentist can make dental health a lot more convenient. Keep reading to find out what we mean.
What Exactly Is A Family Dentist?
It’s important to clarify what a family dentist is, as many confuse them with general dentists. While they are very similar, there is a difference. Family dentists have extensive experience in performing dental procedures for all ages and are well equipped to meet a variety of smile needs. In contrast, general dentists may limit their practice based on certain qualifications—age, for example. So let’s delve into why you may want to see a family dentist instead of a general dentist:
1. Family Dentists Can Save Time And Energy
If each member of your family has a different dentist, that means you’re going to have a make a lot of calls making different appointmenta. It also means you’re also going to have to drive to a lot of different offices. Over time, yearly appointments and multiple checkups can turn into quite a hassle for the average busy family. With a family dentist, however, all you need to do is set aside one day for dental visits at our office, and that’s it. You, your child, and your elderly parent can all receive dental treatment under the same roof.
2. Family Dentists Are Often More Flexible
Family dentists understand the unique needs families have in a way a general dentist may not. We know parents have demanding jobs, and kids have busy school schedules and extracurricular activities. Thus, we try to accomodate your schedule more than the average dentist who works 9-5. At our North Wilmot Road location, we are open Monday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Tuesday through Thursday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and Friday from 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM. For our Oracle Road location, we are open Monday through Wednesday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and Friday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. We look forward to seeing every smile in your family at a time that is most convenient for you.
