What Is A Family Dentist?

A ‘Family Dentist’ is a health care professional who has a vital part in helping maintain good oral health for you and your family.

Family dentists see a wide variety of patients ranging in age from young children to older adults. They can care for a child’s baby teeth as well as adult teeth which makes them a logical, one-stop choice for your entire family’s dental care.

Most family dentists work in their own offices and have dental assistants and dental hygienists working with them to provide patients with the best comprehensive care.

Family dentistry, like general dentistry, provides preventative and restorative services.

These services include:

v    Regular cleanings

v    Examinations

v    Oral Cancer Screening

v    Dental Sealants

v    Fluoride Treatment

v     X-rays

v    Dental fillings

v    Tooth extractions

Many family dentists – like Dr. Frank Romano – have additional training and are qualified to offer a variety of other services such as cosmetics, endodontics (root canal therapy) and sedation dentistry.

When it comes to choosing the right dentist for your family, it’s important to find a dentist that best fits your needs. Each state has a dental association that can provide names of dentists who are members of the American Dental Association (ADA). The ADA will gladly assist you in making an informed choice.
