Today, no matter where you live, there are likely to be many family dentists around.
How do you get your research started?
A good place to start is to ask for suggestions before beginning your study. As your new dentist whether he or she knows any good dentists in the area your family will be moving to. Ask him or her about the dentist who will be their substitute and if possible, visit him or her if he or she retires.
You may also ask for suggestions from friends and family members. Recommendations from individuals you know and trust are often excellent starting points.
Your next bet is online, if you do not get a personal recommendation. Sites such as Yelp are useful online review sites.
Visit – one and talk to them directly when you have a list of possible dentists.
What are the qualities of a great family dentist that you can look for?
For a dentist appointment, particularly when your family has several appointments on the same day, hours apart, you don’t want to be driving clear across town.
In the same office as your kids, can you and your spouse get your dental treatments done? Is the dentist a real dentist of the family or does he or she practise paediatric dentistry only? While adults and children receive the same basic oral care, the dental needs of adults can vary from those of children. Kids, for example, may need sealants while teeth implants may be required for adults.
You are a busy parent and you certainly don’t have the resources to have the adults in your family handled in one location and your kids in another to go to several dental offices.
When attempting to schedule appointments, a dentist with a thorough list of services that suit both adult and child dental needs will save you time, gas money and headaches.
Degree of practise in Pediatric Dentistry
For the sole purpose of having business and becoming more successful, some general practise dentists will mark themselves as family dentists. They may be limited in their knowledge of engaging with and treating young patients.
In order to make it better and more convenient for children, paediatric dentistry alters and adapts the practises of general dentistry for adults. Specialized training and experience is popular among quality family and paediatric dentists in child sedation, orthodontics, oral medicine, child anaesthesia, child oral trauma and infant oral health.
