A Family Dentist can be beneficial to everyone. Since they are not limited treating to one specific age group, like pediatric dentists or specialty dentists, they can treat anyone at any age which makes them perfect for families. These dentists can treat a wide variety of ages, so they are perfect for children, this way they can see them all the way from their first appointment to their last. Children can sometimes fear the dentist as well as other medical things, developing trust and confidence with one dentist is significant for their oral health development, and lifelong care.

Family Dentists, like anything, can have both positive and negative attributes. The positives far outnumber the negatives, for which there are only a few. For example, a family dentist typically cannot perform specialized treatment, but they can refer you to a specialist. These dentists can also be in quite a high demand, which might make it difficult to get appointments on short notice. The positives however are numerous and include, a lifelong relationship with your oral health provider, convenience when scheduling multiple appointments for the family, and a wide scope of general care available to you and your family for everyone’s lifetimes.
