Are you looking for family dentistry in Huntsville, AL?

Families do many things together but often have various medical and dental providers. The team at Twickenham Family Dentistry believes that there are benefits when children see the same dentist as mom, dad, and other family members.

Let’s explore these benefits!

#1 Peace-of-Mind for Adults and Children

When your child is called back to see the dentist, you have no idea how the staff behaves. Are they snappy? Impatient? Will they make your child fear the dental setting?

Taking your child to the same dentist you see eliminates this worry. You have built a trusting relationship with the team at Twickenham Family Dentistry, which eases your concerns and may also make your child feel more confident.

#2 Diverse Experience for Long-Term Dental Care

A dentist who works with all age groups has unique skills and can treat a child and then a senior adult with ease. In addition, an experienced family dentist can move between age groups and address a wider variety of oral health concerns.

This also means your child can see the same dentist into adulthood.

#3 Family Dentistry Is Convenient

Your family’s dental charts and records are in one location! Traveling to a single dental office for everyone’s dental needs instead of multiple trips around town.

Further, we work to see everyone on the same day whenever possible, saving you time and gas money on travel.

#4 Familiarity with Family Traits

Suppose specific oral health issues run in your family, including unique jaw size. In that case, your dentist can be on the lookout for these issues in your child, especially if we treat older family members in your household and know what may be hereditary.
