Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry practices are prepared to treat every member of your family, from young children to older adults. Family dentistry is focused on educating children and adults on the best practices and habits to ensure good oral hygiene and health, so that patients can take a more active role in their dental well-being.

Family dental groups offer a comprehensive suite of dental services to provide treatment to all ages, thus providing you with one convenient source for all your family members’ dental health care needs. From regular checkups to specialized procedures, the family dentists at CaliDental have you covered.

What types of services does a family dentist offer?

Family dentists offer many of the same services that other dentists offer, all combined in one convenient practice. Some of the most common services include:

  • Regular exams and teeth cleanings
  • Fluoride treatment to strengthen teeth
  • Dental X-rays
  • Dental fillings
  • Crowns and bridgework
  • Dental implants
  • Root canals
  • Tooth extractions
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Complete and partial dentures
  • Orthodontics or Invisalign® treatment

Whatever your age or level of dental health, the team at CaliDental will work with you to find the right treatment for your needs.

What are the benefits of a family dentist?

The most obvious benefit of a family dental practice is that it allows you to book all your family’s dental procedures at the same place and, if you prefer, at the same time. But there are a number of benefits beyond convenience. 

Seeing a family dentist allows your children the continuity of seeing the same dentist throughout their childhood and into adulthood. This continuity gives your dentist an even better understanding of their unique needs and overall dental health. 

On top of that, family dentists have been trained to understand the specialized dental needs that affect children, teens, and adults of all ages. Family dentists also take the time to get to know the members of your family, and this helps limit dental anxiety and makes trips to your dentist a more pleasant experience.
