Luckily, your family dentist can help you organize you and your family’s dental health into a routine that works for your busy lives.

What does a family dentist do? 
Family dentistry specializes in patients of all ages at various points in their lives. This means that your family dentist will see both your grandmother to help with her dentures or your youngest child for their very first dental visit. Family dentists focus on treating all of the common dental conditions with procedures like dental fillings, root canal therapy, routine cleanings, and restorations like crowns and bridges. Additionally, family dentists may also offer cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening.

What are the benefits of a family dentist? 
Family dentistry allows your whole family to see the same dentist, without any unnecessary trips to dentists specializing in only adults or only children. Schedule the whole family’s dental examinations and cleanings on one day, taking one trip and only one day off from work or school. Additionally, family dentists keep your entire family’s dental records in one place for safe-keeping, making transferring or requesting records easier than ever.

Family Dentistry in Hacienda Heights, CA
People of all ages benefit from seeing their dentist at least every six months for regular examinations and cleanings. These preventative visits help your dentist find issues with your teeth before they become more complex problems. Regular cleanings remove any traces of plaque or tartar left behind after brushing and flossing, preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Be sure to brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once to keep them healthy between visits.
