Family dentistry is a specialty in the general dentistry category. A general dentist can treat conditions that affect the teeth and supporting tissue at any stage of life.
Family dentists like those at Killeen Family Dentistry work to build relationships with the families that come to the office. Children do better when they come to one office for all their dental needs because they build trust with the staff there.
A good family dentist treats each stage of the patient's dental life, baby teeth to adult teeth. The service includes anything a general dentist does like:
A family dentist is trained to work with children and to understand their special needs.
A pediatric dentist only treats children. A family dentist, like those at Killeen Family Dentistry, takes patients of all ages.
Mom can bring the little ones in for a cleaning and then stay to get her checkup too. Pediatric dentists stop treating a patient once they reach the age of 21.
Anyone can come to the office for oral care, but the primary benefit of a family dental practice is that the whole family goes to one dental office.
Parents can coordinate all trips to the dentist for the whole house at one time. With everyone in the family getting treatment under one roof, there is a higher level of trust and confidence too.
Not all the patients that come to Killeen Family Dentistry have kids, but that doesn’t matter. The team treats individuals and families alike.
Family dentists might not do cosmetic procedures, for example, like a dental implant or bridge. They can send the patient to a specialist for something like that, but most other procedures occur right in the office.
In that respect, a family dentist is similar to a primary care physician. Everything starts with the family dentist, and if the patient needs a specialty service, the Killeen Family Dentistry team can make a recommendation.
