Comfort because you know where you are going and who you are seeing; you and your family dentist are partners in your family’s oral health.
A family dentist can provide services to all members of your family, no matter what their ages are.
If you have small children, they will need regular dental exams and x-rays to determine if there are any dental problems present. Small children also benefit from regular professional cleanings and fluoride treatments.
As your children become older, preventive sealants are an important step to protect against tooth decay. Recommended ages for sealants are between 5 and 7 for first permanent molars, and between 11 and 14 for second permanent molars.
