At first, having a specialist for each member of your family may sound like a good idea. However, a few months of driving across town for braces appointments, routine cleanings, and sudden toothaches will make you seriously reconsider. Fortunately, you can free your schedule without compromising the high-quality care you deserve by choosing a family dentist in Oshkosh! Read on for four benefits that you and your family will love.
#1. It Simplifies Your Dental Care
From elderly patients to small children, a family dentist can treat every member of your household at one convenient location. That way, you can say goodbye to the headache of coordinating your family’s dental appointments with different providers on different days. Instead, you can schedule all the services you need at one convenient location and simplify your life!
#2. Enjoy a Comprehensive Array of Services
Since family dentists center their practice around treating patients of all ages, they specialize in offering a comprehensive array of services. So, if an older member of your family needs to be fitted for dentures, your teen wants to straighten their teeth with braces, or you want to upgrade your smile with a professional teeth whitening treatment, they are ready to help!
#3. It’s Easier to Track Your Dental History
Jumping from provider to provider can make tracking down your dental history a nightmare. However, if you have established a relationship with one dentist, then all the X-rays, charts, and previous treatments can be easily located. Plus, you won’t have to worry about anything falling through the cracks!
#4. Help Prevent Dental Anxiety
Did you know that 20% of school-aged children have a dental phobia? Plus, nearly 50% of adults experience moderate to severe anxiety around going to the dentist. Fortunately, having a dentist who is more a member of your family than a stranger can take the fear out of routine appointments. By watching you (and your whole family) comfortably get the treatment they need, your little one can follow suit and grow up to practice good oral health habits.
If your calendar is jam-packed with dental appointments at different providers, then it is time to make the switch to a family dentist. That way, each member of your family can get the world-class care they deserve without compromising your schedule!
