What is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry is the term for a dental practice that provides care for patients of all ages. A family dentist offers pediatric dentistry as well as dental services for adults. The whole family can go to one dental practice to receive the dental care they need.

Benefits of Family Dentistry

The major benefits of family dentistry can be narrowed down to the 3 C’s: 

  • Convenient. Enjoy the convenience of taking the whole family to one dentist for complete dental care. There’s no need to take the kids to a separate pediatric dentist when a family dentist can treat both children and adults. 
  • Cost effective. Save money and gas when the whole family can go to the dentist at the same time. Make your appointments together and everyone can get the care they need without making multiple trips. 
  • Continuous. When children start their dental care at a pediatric dental practice they will eventually need to transition to a dentist who treats adults. But going to a family dentist eliminates the need to change dental practices later on. Your care is continuous and your complete dental history is on file. The dental team and staff know you and your family’s complete dental history. 

Services We Offer

We provide the following dental services to families:

Preventive Dentistry. Teeth cleanings, oral exams, and X-ray diagnostics are all preventive measures to keep your teeth and mouth healthy.

Restorative Dentistry. Fillings, root canals, and crowns are all restorative procedures that repair damage to your teeth and protect them from further damage.

Cosmetic Dentistry. Improvements to the appearance of your teeth, such as whitening treatments, veneers, crowns, bridges, and dental implants are all cosmetic dental services.

Airway Dentistry. Snoring and sleep apnea are caused by a blocked or partially blocked airway. In many cases these sleep conditions can be corrected or improved with dental interventions. Evaluating growth and development of the dental arches as well as a growing child’s sleep is also a very important part of pediatric dentistry.

Emergency Dentistry. An urgent dental matter that needs immediate attention would be considered a dental emergency. A cracked or broken tooth, a severe toothache, a dislodged tooth, or a soft tissue injury are all examples of dental emergencies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a family dentist as good as a pediatric dentist for my child?

A family dentist has training and experience with both pediatric and adult dentistry. Schaus Dental Studio provides the same quality dental care for children that a pediatric dentist does, especially in relation to discussing a child’s growth pattern and sleep. There are some situations that a pediatric dentist may be necessary and we have great relationships with a couple pediatric dentists in the area.

As an adult, are there any disadvantages to going to a family dental practice?

A family dental practice provides the same quality of care that an adult focused dental practice does. There are no risks or concerns that would cause an adult to avoid a family dental practice or to specifically seek a practice that only sees adults. 

How often should adults and children go to the dentist?

Both children and adults should go to the dentist for routine dental cleanings and exams every 6 months. This allows for professional removal of plaque from your teeth before it can harden into calculus and become a bigger problem that is more difficult to remove. It also allows your dentist to identify any potential dental or oral health concerns and provide treatment.

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

On average, children and adults should brush their teeth twice a day and floss once a day. If there is a high risk of dental and oral problems, such as a child with braces or an adult who has recurring gum disease or frequent cavities, they may need to brush and floss more often.
