Family dentistry defined
Dental practices have various labels that can become confusing, making it difficult for some patients to understand what family dentistry is. As a versatile field of dental care, family dentistry is the branch that focuses on diagnosing and treating the dental needs of patients regardless of sex or age. Family dentists may also be called general dentists.
Our family-friendly practice focuses on preventing and treating dental problems. We understand that communication is crucial as we work to develop strong, long-term relationships with our patients. We develop a sense of trust and understanding to create a comfortable environment for patients young and old. With the knowledge and understanding that needs change with time, we offer a range of comprehensive services to meet our patients’ needs at each stage of life.
What are family dental services?
Young children need to get off on the right foot in learning proper oral care. We work with children and their parents in teaching the proper care of baby teeth, and later, the erupting adult teeth. Brushing and flossing are as important for children as they are for adults. Developing good habits at an early age establishes a lifelong routine of proper oral care.

Comprehensive family dental care
Our team wants each member of your family to have a healthy smile. Maintaining good oral health and overall wellness requires teamwork. As we build trusting relationships with our patients, we take the time to provide home oral health tips to preserve patients’ healthy smiles. Preventative dentistry includes routine dental visits. Unless otherwise directed by the dentist, routine visits are scheduled every six months. These visits involve cleaning and flossing the teeth to remove built-up plaque. The teeth and gums are assessed to check for problems such as periodontal disease. The timing of dental visits is set so that if problems do arise they are caught and addressed early.
Restorative dental treatments address issues that threaten your oral health. Whether a patient experiences tooth pain, a broken tooth, or missing teeth, treatment options are available. If problems arise, patients feel confident knowing our experienced team is available to help. Our advanced technologies allow us to provide accurate evaluations and efficient, effective treatment options.
We offer cosmetic dental services to help you achieve the straight, white smile you deserve. Whether you are searching for teeth whitening or veneers, we can help you achieve a beautiful smile. For patients who want to straighten their teeth, we offer Invisalign clear aligner trays. No matter what your dental needs or stage of life, we have you covered.
