Benefits of a Santa Barbara Family Dentist
In addition to saving time and energy, seeing the same dentist has other benefits.
We will schedule you in a way that minimizes your trips to our office by scheduling your whole family at the same time whenever possible. We can also work with you and your family's schedule, so you won't have to miss work or school.
Your child will get to keep their dentist throughout their childhood years and into adulthood. This means they get to keep seeing someone they trust implicitly, someone they're comfortable with - and that's invaluable.
Additionally, if your child sees you getting your teeth cleaned regularly and without pain or fear, they're more likely to feel at ease when visiting the dentist and because you all see the same Santa Barbara family dentist, they'll learn a lot from your example.
Keeping your family on the same dental schedule will also help ensure that everyone sees the dentist regularly. Routine dental visits allow your family dentist to find issues early. If they detect some decay, the filling will most likely be a shallow one. If there's a crack in the tooth or too much pressure on the TMJ (temporomandibular joint), those issues can be remedied early as well.
Catching dental issues early can prevent pain and help keep dental costs low.
Another perk of seeing a family dentist - you'll all receive the same oral hygiene instructions. You'll be able to support each other with good dental home care and ensure that your kids brush and floss properly.
