There are many benefits to having a family dentist. As a parent, you always want the best for your family and at Broadway Smiles, we want to help you in this pursuit. For that reason, we have compiled a few reasons it would be a good idea to find a family dentist and make it a part of your calendar.
Like any medical field, there is a lot that a dentist can learn about your teeth based on your family history. Having a family dentist can mean that one dental clinic is responsible for your entire family’s oral health. If there are any trends your dentist notices, they can easily diagnose and provide preventative treatment if necessary.
Dental clinics can be a source of anxiety for many kids and adults. Having a single dentist that you can build a relationship with can help reduce that anxiety for a lot of people. You and your kids will begin to build trust with your dentist and allow for easier communication during appointments.
It is recommended that you visit a dentist at least twice a year. Having multiple dental clinics will inevitably lead to more commuting and allocating more days off for appointments. It is always going to be easier to schedule all your appointments on the same day and visit the dentist as a family. Also when it comes time to reschedule, your family dentist can easily book your family into a convenient time slot for everyone!
At Broadway Smiles, we always recommend you visit a dentist as a family. Not only does it make the trip easier for your kids, but it will also engrain good habits for your kids and allow you to plan your days better.
