What Makes a Family Dentist Different From a General Dentist?
Family dentists focus on treating the oral issues of your entire family, at all ages. This includes pediatric dentistry. In contrast, some general dentists mostly -or exclusively- treat adults. A family dentist can provide expert care for you and your entire family.
By choosing a family dentist in Lombard like Dr. Blacher, your family can get all of their dental needs treated under one roof. We offer comprehensive dental care and minimize referrals, which makes it easy for you and your family to get the dental treatment you need even on a busy schedule.
The Importance of Preventive Care From a Family Dentist
At our office, we focus on preventive care. The best way to treat dental health issues like gum disease and cavities is to prevent them from ever forming. That’s why we emphasize the importance of your routine teeth cleaning visits.
By receiving proper cleanings every six months and establishing proper at-home oral hygiene habits, you and your family can minimize or eliminate your risk of cavities and gum disease. Preventing issues like tooth decay and gum disease saves you time and money and keeps your smiles looking bright. So don’t wait. If you’re overdue for an appointment with a family dentist or you’re new to the area, contact our office right away.
When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist for the First Time?
The answer may surprise you! The AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) recommends that you take your child to the dentist for the first time when their first tooth starts to erupt, or when they turn 12 months old.
However, if your child is older and still hasn’t seen the dentist, don’t worry. Now is the best time to start seeing a family dentist. If you’re located in Lombard, get in touch, and we’ll make sure your child gets the dental care they need.
We know that finding a new family dentist can be intimidating. That’s why we offer office tours for all of our new patients. If you’re not yet sure if we’re a good fit for you and your family, just contact us for a tour and a consultation with Dr. Blacher. You can learn more about our approach to dentistry, and our family dentistry services in a comfortable, friendly environment.
