When patients think of the dentist, they often think of those who specialize in either children or adults. However, there are family dentists available that encourage parents to have their entire family seen under one roof.
What are the benefits of family dentistry?
The primary advantage to having a family dentist is the ability to have everyone seen with the same dental professional. This makes it easier than ever to get children and adults in for their routine appointments without having to drive around town to different specialists. Dr. Michael Westman has experience working with patients of all ages, ensuring comprehensive care for the entire household. We offer back-to-back appointments for our families to make it simple for busy, active families to get their visits in without delay.
Additionally, working with a family dentist allows the entire household to build a personal relationship with the dentist. This means less anxiety, especially for younger children who may be unfamiliar with a dental professional and their surroundings. Dr. Michael Westman works slowly with children to help them feel at ease in his care and walks them through the procedure so there are absolutely no surprises and nothing scary. He is pleased to have the opportunity to help many generations of family members in his practice located in Racine, WI.
