What Is A Family Dentist?

If you’re looking for a family dentist in Oklahoma City, Crossroads Family Dental is a compassionate, friendly dental office. Dr. Faulconer, Dr. Dais, and Dr. Underwood have years of experience working with patients of all ages.

What’s the difference between a family dentist and a general dentist? What are the benefits of bringing your loved ones to a family dentist? Here are 3 of the things to keep in mind about family dentistry so you choose a dental home in Oklahoma City:

A Great Oral Education Resource For Your Kids

Your child’s approach to oral care and hygiene is determined not just by you, but also by the dentist you choose when they are young. If you choose a dentist who does not specialize in caring for children, they may not be as invested in making sure your child enjoys their dental appointments. If dental visits are intimidating or scary when a child is young, this increases the possibility of developing dental anxiety.

In contrast, a great family dentist with a pediatrician on-staff will provide your little ones with a much more child-friendly environment. A good family dentist will be able to communicate with your children on their own level, explain complex oral health concepts and topics in a way they will understand, and help educate you and your children about their teeth.

Your Lifelong Partner In Oral Health

A family dentist specializes in treating patients of all ages, from infanthood all the way through elderly ages. Family dentists treat the whole family at every stage of life.

That means that for everything from teething, to orthodontic consultations for teenagers, and dentures or dental implants for older members of your family, you can trust a family dentist to provide great service.

The longer you see the same family dentist, the better your relationship will be throughout the years. Your dentist will learn about your family, your oral health conditions, and your overall health. In turn, this means better patient care. You’ll have a “dental home”, where you can always get great service.

Your Best Option For Emergency Dental Care

When you see a family dentist and build a relationship with them, they will go the extra mile for you, which is particularly important in an emergency situation. Your family dentist should be your top choice for help in a dental emergency.

At Crossroads Family Dentistry, we offer same-day walk-in appointments to our patients for emergencies, and we will always do our best to accommodate you with after-hours, or even weekend appointments when necessary.
