We are a Family of Dentists, for your Family

A family dentist is similar to a general dentist, as each provides services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health. While both terms can be used interchangeably, there is a slight difference between the two. There are certain dentists that restrict their practice to specific age groups, while a family dentist will typically care for the entire family—from young children to older adults.

At Chris Childs Dentistry, family dentistry is at the heart of what we do. We take great pride in being responsible for ensuring that your family’s dental needs are met, ensuring plaque buildup around the teeth is kept to a minimum, that tooth decay is eliminated and cavities are filled, all in order to maintain healthy smiles for the entire family.

A lot of people wonder what exactly the difference is between family dentistry and general dentistry. The answer is they are very similar in the fact that they both revolve around oral hygiene and the condition of your teeth, but family dentistry places an emphasis on your child’s exceptional dental needs, as well. Family dentistry simplifies your dental care by excelling in treating both adults and children. We focus on your oral health at each stage of life because we realize that children and adults have different dental needs. Here at Chris Childs Dentistry, we are qualified to care for and treat both primary and permanent teeth making our practice fit for the entire family.

Luckily, because we are also a family dentistry, we are able to offer a lot of different services to satisfy dental needs of any kind. Our team serves patients of all ages, and we do our best to provide dental care that meets the needs of your family such as, but not limited to:

  • General Dentistry – everything you may need from regular check-ups to filling cavities.
  • Tooth Extraction – sometimes crowns and fillings don’t work to save a tooth, and you or your little one may need to have the tooth pulled in order to feel relief.
  • Treating Mouth Ulcers – a treatment to help relieve the symptoms of an ulcer or an open sore within the mouth.
  • Abfraction Treatment – a treatment that includes a filling or a gum replacement graft that will protect your teeth from potential cavities near your gum line.
  • Sedation Dentistry – a practice that helps remove the anxiety from dental treatment.

We strongly believe in starting preventative check-ups as early as possible for your children so that they will become aware of the importance of dental hygiene and learn from your habits. It also makes it easier and more convenient that you have the ability to knock out all dental appointments for both you and your entire family in one day!  Other family benefits include:

  •  Flexible appointment times
  • Comfortable, family friendly atmosphere
  • Combined appointments for family members
  • Serving as a dental health mentor or coach
  • Helping to establish good habits as early as possible
  • Special interactions are established with your dentist

…And much more!

By having the whole family come to the same dental group, we are able to establish great connections that lead to greater ease in the future. The connection between our team and your family will continue to grow over the years and will allow us to address situations in the future with comfort, help your child feel less scared to come to an appointment, and makes it easier to monitor everyone’s dental account under one roof. If everyone remains in the same place, it also allows for all of your dental history and records to remain in one location rather than having to stress about hunting it down in the future if there were to be an emergency.

We will oversee your family’s dental health, while setting the stage for beautiful smiles in all family photos for years to come. From routine cleanings and exams to cosmetic and restorative care, we are a full-service dental clinic that can meet all your family’s dental care needs and create a positive experience for all.
