What is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry is a term that indicates a dentist focuses on preventative dentistry and general dentistry. However, as you can see from the above list, Dr. Goodling provides so much more.

  • Twice-yearly cleanings and exams: Twice-yearly exams are critical for patients of all ages because they help catch oral issues like tooth decay and gingivitis before they become more severe.
  • Fluoride treatments and sealants: Fluoride treatments and dental sealants prevent tooth decay. Your dentist will discuss how often these treatments should occur in your children.
  • Filling any cavities: Tooth decay is a common childhood condition. You may be surprised at how many children we see who have signs of tooth decay at their very first dental visit.
  • Straightening smiles: What sets our dental practice apart from many is that we offer orthodontic treatment; many family dentists must refer out for teeth straightening treatment.
  • Perio treatment: We offer many types of gum disease treatment to stop this serious condition in its tracks at the earliest signs of development.

How Dentistry Benefits You

Having a family dentist you like and trust benefits you and your family in many ways—many of which we have already touched upon earlier in the page.

Here are just a few of the benefits of family dentistry:

  • Dental care is easier when the whole family goes to the same dentist.
  • Your family dentist gets a comprehensive picture of the family’s oral health and medical history.
  • Family dentists are versatile; most dental treatments can be done in one location.
  • You get to know the staff, and the team understands your family.
  • Your dentist and his team will keep you to an exam and treatment schedule, eliminating the pressure of remembering what treatment is due next.
  • Parents can set an excellent example for their children by emphasizing how critical dental care is starting from a very young age.
