A family dentist simply denotes that the dentist is willing to treat children, along with adult patients. Both family and general dentists offer dental exams and cleanings, fluoride treatments, and cavity detection. There may be some differences in the treatments when applied to younger patients. Dr. Ki will be able to explain the specific differences during your child’s appointment.
A Dentist for Children
Dr. Ki is a family-friendly dentist. She is eager to help everyone with their dental habits, and like with all habits, the earlier you are able to establish good ones, the better off you will be. Helping our younger patients learn to brush properly and teaching them the value of flossing are just some of the habits we help form that are important to their continued dental health.
Your Child’s First Dental Appointment
The American Dental Association recommends that you bring your child in for their first dental appointment by the time they are 1 year old. This will help Dr. Ki be able to guide their dental development through the formative years and address any issues that may begin to arise early on. Like with all problems, catching them early is critical in giving your child the best chance for successful treatment. However, we mainly start dental work on children and teens.
A Dentist for All Ages
This is one of the reasons Dr. Ki should be your choice for your family’s dental care. As your family’s dentist, you will never have to go to anyone else for the dental care you need (barring any type of specialist referral). Your child can start their dental journey with Dr. Ki, and they will stay with Dr. Ki for the rest of their time at our practice. One of the more rewarding aspects of family dentistry is that we get to see some of our patients from the beginning of their oral development all the way through adulthood. At this point, we are helping them maintain the great smiles we watched over when they were young.
Friendly, Comfortable Dentist Office
One great way of helping your child be comfortable at the dentist is to bring them with you to your appointments. This gives them a chance to get comfortable in the office, and it gives our staff a chance to get to know them as well. Your child will watch you and know that the dentist’s office is not a place to be afraid of.
