When choosing a family dentist there are many things to consider. How much experience and specialized training does the dentist have? Does the dentist include children in the practice and make special accommodations for their care and comfort? What is the practice's policy on after hour emergencies? Do they offer pain-free and anxiety-free dentistry options? Did they welcome you warmly and in a caring manner? The right answers to these questions will assist you in making the correct decision when choosing a family dentist. It is also important to keep in mind that a convenient location and office hours that fit your family's schedule play a role when choosing a family dentist. A family dentist will be your primary health care professional when it comes to the care and treatment of your teeth and gums. A family dentist is licensed to diagnose your dental problems, develop a treatment plan and provide that treatment. Most family dentists are aided by dental hygienists and dental assistants who are responsible for professional dental cleanings, exposing and developing x-rays, patient education and other tasks related to your visit.
