What are the benefits of family dentistry?
There are many reasons why a parent may decide to work with a family-friendly dental practice. First, it is much easier to line up appointments for everyone on one day, rather than trek children and adults to different professionals across town. Our practice will set up back-to-back appointments for everyone in the household so all family members can be seen on the same day without multiple visits. Second, a family dentist is familiar with generations of members, making it easier to spot genetic issues that may be hereditary, giving him a leg up on diagnosing common dental problems. Third, a family dentist builds positive relations with everyone in the household and can become a trusted provider for both children and adults. Dr. Michael Westman has a gentle hand and a wonderful attitude towards children and can make even the youngest patients feel at ease in the dental chair.
When should children start seeing the dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends that parents bring their children in for their first dental appointment by the age of one, or earlier if the first baby teeth have erupted through the gum line. This allows patient to touch base with a professional regarding their child’s oral health and wellness and ask questions about how to care for their newly developing smile.
