For some reason a lot of people look at a dentist as “optional care” when the reality is dental care is just as important as care for any other area of your body. Maybe it is because that people think of teeth as something that is attached to beauty so they think that they are not quite as important as their eyes or their ears. A lifelong commitment to dental care starts with childhood. Teaching your children from a very early age that visiting the dentist and getting oral health care is as important as visiting the MD for an annual checkup will promote:
- A life of good oral health
- Less expense for dental work
- More confidence
- Avoiding dental handicaps
A family dentistry practice can provide comprehensive dental care for the entire family. Children look to their role models (parents) to make their way in the world. A parent that takes oral health seriously and that goes to the dentist of regular care will promote the same behaviors in their children. Having one group that the whole family can go to together can make huge difference in how children view going to the dentist.
