Scrambling to get your kids in the car and make it to the dentist on time? At South Penn Dental, we know that making it to your dentist appointment can be a challenge. Having to schedule two separate appointments at two different dentistry practices also doesn’t make the job easier. Instead of going to a general dentistry that only accepts patients within a certain age group, consider going to a family dentistry that specializes in dental procedures for all ages. Here are four reasons why you should use a family dentist.
Schedule appointments for the entire household
A family dentist simplifies dental care because he can treat everyone in your household. No more driving around town from one dentist to another, instead schedule all of your family’s routine cleanings together. Going to a family dentist is also convenient for kids because they don’t have to switch dentists once they reach adulthood.
Flexible and convenient hours
If you’re a parent who’s constantly on the go, then the last thing you want to worry about is scheduling dentist appointments for your children. One of the benefits of going to a family dentistry is the convenient hours. The majority of dental practices are open until five, so you can pick up your kids from school and drive them right over.
Establish personal relationships
Going to the dentist becomes easier over-time, but it’s even easier if you have a family dentist. The longer you go to your dentist the more comfortable you feel because you’ve formed a personal relationship. The same applies to kids, children are more willing to go to the dentist if it’s the same one that they’ve been going to since they were five.
Variety of services
Many dentistries will accommodate different treatments to ensure that you don’t have to travel between providers in order to get the oral health care you need. At South Penn Dental, we not only offer exams and cleaning, but also cosmetic dentistry, whitening, restorative dentistry and same day emergency treatment.
Whether you’re looking for a simple cleaning, teeth whitening or cosmetic dentistry, we’re here to help at South Penn Dental. Not only will we schedule a time that works best for you and your family, but we’ll also make you feel welcome and comfortable. Give us a call at (405) 681-6601 to set up an appointment.
