What’s the Difference Between a Family Dentist and a General Dentist?
It’s a big choice to find a new dentist. You want to find a dentist who not only does the right things for you but also makes you feel welcome and at ease. If you have a family, you may also want to look for a dental office that can take care of the needs of everyone in the family.
Most dentists will call themselves either general dentists or family dentists, or they might use both terms interchangeably. Don’t worry if you don’t know what the difference is! We’ll talk about what family and general dentists are, how to choose between them, and what services we offer as a family practice.
What makes a family dentist different from a general dentist?
The main difference between a family dentist and a general dentist is whether or not they see kids.
Family dentists take care of the teeth of people of all ages, from babies to seniors. Most of the time, general dentists work with young adults and adults, but they may also see high school students.
The only major difference between family and general practices is the age of the patients. General dentists are what family dentists are. But not all family dentists are general dentists.
Most dental offices for families will make it clear that they care about families and will see children. If you are looking for a dentist in your area and their website doesn’t say “family,” it’s likely that they are a general dentist.
If you have a very young child, it’s a good idea to ask a dentist about the youngest age they see patients. For instance, a family dentist may start seeing kids as young as 3 or 4 years old. Some will even take babies and young children as young as 6 months to 1 year.
How to Decide Between a General and a Family Dentist
We consider our practice a Family Practice at Coolbreeze Dentistry.
Most of the time, it’s easy to decide between a family dentist and a general dentist, but there are a few things to think about. Most families with children choose to see a family dentist, but some choose to see both a family dentist and a pediatric dentist. Pediatric dentists are different from general dentists because they only work with kids and teens under the age of 18. Family dentists give kids all-around care, but some parents may choose to take their very young children to a kids’ dentist. In some cases, a kids’ dentist can help kids who are afraid of the dentist feel more at ease because the office is designed for kids. As your child gets older and more confident, it will be easy for them to switch to the family dentist that everyone else goes to.
General dentists are great for adults of all ages, from young adults to older people. But even if you don’t have kids, there’s no reason why a family dentist wouldn’t be a great choice for you. Even if they don’t have kids or if their kids are grown up, many patients like the warm, friendly atmosphere of a family practice.
Seeing a family dentist now is great if you want to start a family in the future. You’ll be able to build a good relationship with your family dentist before your kids need to see him or her.
We offer eight main types of dental care at Coolbreeze Dentistry.
A big part of general dentistry is care that keeps teeth healthy. This category is all about how to keep your teeth healthy by getting regular checkups, professional cleanings, and oral cancer screenings. Think of it as everything your dentist does to keep your teeth as healthy as possible.
Restorative dentistry is all about fixing problems with your smile, like missing teeth or teeth that are very badly broken. Restorative care includes services like fillings, root canals, and even dentures. We also do bridges, crowns, and implants for teeth.
Periodontal care is all about preventing and treating gum disease, from mild gingivitis to severe periodontitis. Periodontal therapy is the process of deep cleaning the pockets in your gums that are around your teeth. Imagine getting your teeth cleaned by a professional, but on a much bigger scale.
Dentistry for kids
Pediatric dentistry is a special kind of dental care for children. It starts as soon as your child gets their first baby tooth and includes both preventive care and care to fix problems. Sealants are a great extra service for kids’ teeth.
If you want to improve the look of your smile, cosmetic dentistry is the way to go. We offer porcelain veneers, in-office or at-home teeth whitening by a professional, and Invisalign. Porcelain crowns and dental implants are two other options that can be used for both looks and health.
Oral surgery is a common procedure at family dentist offices today. This means that we can help you with dental implant surgery, the removal of your wisdom teeth, and other tooth extractions right in our office. Ask us about laughing gas if you want a more relaxing time.
