What is Family Dentistry?

As a family dentistry practice, the team at Olathe Dental Care Center knows how to take care of all smiles, young and old. A family dentist is unique because it takes care of oral health during each stage of life rather than just focusing on a single age group. Because they see ages from young to old, you can trust that all members of your family will get the customized care they deserve when seeing their family dentistry.

Family dentistry is concerned with addressing the oral health of patients at every stage of life. Family dentists are very similar to general dentists, but typically have more experience working with children, some family dentists are even qualified pediatricians, how cool! This means that when you come into the office twice a year for your routine checkups, we will provide thorough exams and cleanings to make sure that there is no plaque and tartar buildup, and that any buildup we do find is removed before it causes issues. A great family dentistry should focus on ensuring a positive dental experience for your entire family, every time.

Seeing a family dentistry should be a routine part of your family’s life, with cleanings and exams every 6 months – or twice a year. Children have vastly different dentistry needs than older people, and a qualified family dentistry will provide complete oral care from baby teeth to permanent teeth, and every tooth in between! Some of the most common services a family dentistry provides include:

  • Regular cleanings and exams.
  • Fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
  • Cavity checks and fillings.
  • Gum disease treatment.
  • And more!
