There are obvious reasons why going to different dental specialists can be advantageous. However, having this type of setup can be extremely time-consuming and possibly stressful. Wouldn’t it be better to be able to drive to a single dentist who specializes in both children and adult oral care? This can be quite advantageous considering the unique dental needs of each member of the family.

Here at Three Fountains Family Dental Inc. in West Columbia, SC, our family dentists, Dr. Peter Stoltz and Dr. Brooke Stoltz, offer various dental treatments fit for all families. So what are the other reasons you should choose a family dentist?

Genetic Issues

Imagine a single dentist treating all the members of your family. This would make it simple for your dentist to trace any potential genetic problems that may exist and propose a treatment early on. Parents who have proven to be prone to gum problems and tooth decay, for example, may have children who will experience the same dental issues.

This will allow the family dentist to take additional steps to secure the oral health of the other members of the family. These symptoms will be able to save children from possible painful dental health problems they can encounter as they grow older.

Complete Dental Care

Family dentists have established a record of providing an extensive range of dental care services that include teeth cleaning and teeth replacement. This means that a family dentist is more than capable of responding to all oral needs at any stage of your life. So you can practically grow up with your family dentist in West Columbia, SC, who would have comprehensive knowledge of your dental history and that of your family.

Tracking Progress

Because of the long history that your family shares with your dentist, it wouldn’t be difficult to keep track of the dental progress of every member. As all of you go through the different stages of your life, your family dentist walks along with you as the guardian of your dental health. This translates to having a virtually predictable dental future because your dental records from youth to adolescence is intact in one place.

Personalized Dental Service

Experienced family dentists see patients of varying ages and with different oral needs. This experience allows them to create personalized dental services suitable to the specific needs of every member of your family. Even children who prove to be difficult to convince to go in for a dental checkup can be ably handled by a family dentist.

By sticking to a family dentist, familiarity is built up. So as your children grow older, they become more comfortable with dental visits. This translates to improved oral health for your entire family.

Dental Emergencies

There is no need to panic when facing a dental emergency. With a family dentist, you can be assured that you have a go-to expert when facing a dental emergency. Active children are particularly vulnerable to dental emergencies because of sports and other outdoor activities. A family dentist gives you the peace of mind that no matter what happens to the teeth of any member of your family, you can count on your family dentist for help.
