Family life is awesome, but let’s face it, family life also means being busy… like all the time.
Between school, work, sports, and social activities, any type of convenience that comes your way probably seems like a gift at this point.
At Genesee Dental Group, we believe convenience shouldn’t be considered a “gift,” rather convenience should be the norm, which is why we offer family dentistry under one roof.
If it’s your first time looking for a local family dentist or you’re not exactly sure what family dentistry is, then no problem. We’ll go over some family dentistry basics and help you decide if it’s for you.
Spoiler alert: If you’ve got a family of humans you love, then the answer is yes.
What is family dentistry?
Family dentistry helps patients of all ages (young to older) maintain, improve, and restore their oral health.
You see, each stage of life has dental needs:
Some dental needs are the same for every stage of life, like preventative dental care…
While others are more common in teen and young adult years, like braces.
As people get older, they may need restorative or cosmetic dentistry to improve the look and structure of worn or damaged teeth.
Through all these different ages and stages: Do you know who’s with you and your family?
Your trusted family dentist.
A family dentist is one who’s with you and your family for the long term. After all, great dental health is a lifetime of healthy habits, including going to the dentist regularly for cleanings, exams, and scheduled treatments.
With many services under one roof for your convenience, a family dentist offers comprehensive dental care.
But what does that even mean?
Let us explain.
Comprehensive dental care explained:
Comprehensive dental care includes the different ways to keep teeth healthy – from preventative treatments to restorative and cosmetic dental procedures.

Why choose family dentistry?
The convenience of comprehensive dental care in one spot for the whole family is one of the top reasons to choose a family dentist. Let’s make that super clear.
Another significant factor to consider is the experience a family dentist has with children. A family dentist knows how to work with younger children, so they have a positive experience from their first dental visit to future visits.
Your healthy mouth, teeth, and gums start with healthy habits, and a great family dentist helps teach children how to care for their teeth properly and maintain excellent hygiene at home.
The positive initial experience will also help ease dental anxiety or fear of the dentist so that children feel comfortable at the dentist for many years to come.
Last but not least, family dentistry helps families save time and money.
How is this possible?
Well, a professional teeth cleaning helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease. We don’t doubt you’re a great brusher, but everyone’s mouth has some hard-to-reach places.
Our hygienist has your back – and by “back,” we mean your back teeth!
Also, by going to the dentist twice a year, it’s easier to catch problems early on and fix them before they get out of control.
