Just as every family has a primary care physician, it’s just as important to have a family dentist…. And here’s why.
Every parent wants to start their children on the path of good dental health habits early. One way to do this is with a consistency that comes from having a regular family dentist. It is the consistent care that they provide that can really make a difference.
Greater ease and comfort.
Many people face anxiety when they go to the dentist. But this anxiety can be greatly relieved if you’re going to someone you have known for years. Many of our fears come from worrying about what we don’t know or understand. But if you go consistently to one dentist, you know exactly what to expect when you walk into the office.
This is also a really good idea when it comes to getting kids used to the dentist. They don’t have to worry about the stranger they are going to and can instead visit someone they look up to and trust.
If you go to a new dentist, you either have to request for your files to be transferred, bring them yourself, or just hope for the best. But with a consistent dentist who sees you each and every time you come in, you are getting consistent care. Your dentist will know what type of work you have had done in the past. They will know if you have a gag reflex or if you are a “white knuckler” who grips the armrest of the chair like you’re going to tear it off. By knowing these personality quirks as well as the medical history, they can provide you with consistent and accurate dental care.
Family dentists are also more likely to provide you with emergency dental attention at a moment’s notice as opposed to just wandering into a random dental office looking for assistance.
Finally, you get the satisfaction of having personalized customer service. Everyone likes walking into a business where they are greeted personally and called by name. No one wants to be thought of as just a number. If you have a consistent dentist, they will also be able to take care of your appointments and answer your questions with more ease.
Having a consistent, regular dentist caring for you and your family adds so much convenience and many benefits! If you’re looking for a family dentist, check out Bedminster Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. We offer a variety of services and love adding new patients to our “family”.
