Does your family currently go to several different dentists? It’s not uncommon for families to take their children to a dentist who only does pediatric dentistry while teenagers and adults go to a different practitioner who only treats adults. Unfortunately, taking family members to multiple dentists can be inconvenient. Here are a few of the top reasons you should consider taking your entire family to a practice that offers family dentistry services in Bethel, CT.
The primary reason to go to a family dental practice is for convenience purposes. You won’t need to worry about making appointments at multiple locations, and you’ll be able to bring multiple family members with you for back-to-back appointments. That’s much easier than dropping a child off at one location while you travel to another location for your own dental appointment.
When your entire family visits the same dentist, you develop a relationship with your dental provider that’s based on trust. Your dentist and his or her supporting staff will become familiar with your family’s dental needs and will be able to give you the support you need to help your family members maintain good oral health.
It’s much easier to have your family’s dental records in one place, instead of having them spread out across multiple locations. If you ever need to access a family member’s dental records for any reason, you’ll know right where they are.
Children (and adults) are less likely to experience dental anxiety when they know and trust their dentist. Taking the entire family to one dental location can reduce dental anxiety and improve your likelihood of having a positive treatment experience.
