What Is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry consists of the dental services and treatments needed to safeguard your oral health through every stage of life. We accept children as young as one year old through to seniors enjoying their golden years. You can trust that we will welcome you and your loved ones regardless of their age or current oral health situation.

Dental Care for Children

Toddlers and children face a unique set of oral health situations as their milk teeth erupt. Our team works with many children, including our own, and we take the time to get to know your child and create a positive experience for them every time they visit.

From your child's first appointment to gentle cleanings and pulpotomies, you can rely on our team to make your little one a priority. We also educate your kid on the importance of a daily dental hygiene routine as well as proper brushing and flossing techniques using kid-friendly language.

Dental Care for Teens

As your teen grows, their adult teeth come in, and their jaw and smile develop significantly. Our friendly team monitors the alignment of their teeth and bite, and if we see any issues, we will refer you to a trusted orthodontist.

We understand the teen years are fueled by sweet snacks, pizza, and sugary drinks, all of which directly impact your teen's oral health. Our team takes the time to explain the importance of healthy food choices and helping your teen protect their smile at home. You can rely on our team to perform cleanings, fill cavities, keep an eye on their gum health, and craft sports guards to protect their smile on the athletic field.

Dental Care for Adults

Adults face a unique set of oral health concerns. Tooth decay and gum disease become more serious issues because the loss of an adult tooth is permanent. Our team offers the treatments you need to protect your smile and overall health. We provide biannual cleanings, gentle root canal therapy, and dental restorations to maintain the integrity of your bite and the beauty of your smile.

Dental Care for Seniors

The seniors in your family often battle gum disease and tooth loss, but our team has the necessary services to protect their dental health. We strive to help the elderly keep their natural teeth for as long as possible, but we also offer dental restorations when needed. Our practice offers traditional as well as implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures. We artfully match the dental restoration to blend seamlessly with their smile.
