3 Tips for Choosing the Right Children's Dentist for Your Family
At Oakwood Dental, we get it. Running all over town trying to take care of every member of your family is stressful, and while busying themselves taking care of kids’ needs, parents sometimes put themselves (and their oral health) on the backburner.
What if you could find one dental office to take care of your whole family? We offer personalized treatment for adults in addition to children’s dentistry in our Castle Rock, CO practice.
Many dental offices don’t treat kids, so finding the right family dentist requires a bit of research. Here are some tips to get you started.
Choose a Dentist with Experience in Kids’ Dentistry
Children are not just little adults, so finding a dentist with the skills to communicate and educate your child, in addition to providing clinical dentistry in a gentle way is essential. Any dentist can call themselves a family dentist, so ask some questions about how many kids they treat in a week and what ages they welcome.
You can also check out their online reviews to see if parents have mentioned how great the dentist made the experience for their kids.
Find a Dentist Who Will Treat Your Whole Family
While taking your child to a pediatric dentist has its benefits, like colorful and fun offices, many parents prefer to avoid the potential chaos. Ask your dentist if he or she can care for every member of your family and how they adjust treatment to meet the needs of growing kids.
Do they evaluate children for interceptive orthodontics? What is their cavity prevention protocol? Do they communicate your child’s conditions to you right away?
Find a Dentist Who Makes You Feel Confident
You will likely find many dentists offering children’s dentistry in Castle Rock, CO. It’s essential that you find someone who makes you feel confident – both with their chairside manner and their technical skills.
We invite you to get in touch to book dental appointments for your family. We look forward to meeting you.
