Our family dentist in Smyrna Dental Group specializes in treating patients of all ages. We treat patients as young as six months old to patients in their 90s. During regular dental visits, we provide a wealth of services to help keep patients’ smiles healthy. Here are some of the benefits of visiting a family dentist:

Routine Care

Your family dentist has likely cared for other members of your family for years; in fact, your dentist may have even treated you as a child! This level of familiarity with your family’s medical history can help you feel more comfortable at the dental office and receive the best care possible.

Preventive Care

Preventative dentistry is the best way to keep your teeth healthy and prevent more serious dental problems in the future. Our family dentists are trained to look for early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral issues in their earliest stages, giving you a chance to address the concerns before they develop into severe oral health conditions.

Trustworthy Advice

At our practice, our family dentists are dedicated to honest communication and providing patients with the knowledge they need to make the best decisions for their family’s unique needs. We encourage our patients to ask questions about their treatment recommendations or at-home hygiene routines to ensure they are getting the most out of their visits with us and getting the results they want for their smiles.

Customized Treatment Plans

No two patients are exactly alike, so why should they have the exact same treatment plan? The family dentists at our dental practice understand that every patient has different needs and goals for their smiles, so our dentists work with each patient individually to create a customized treatment plan that helps them meet their unique goals.

Welcoming Environment 

From the check-in process to the delivery of your final preventive fluoride treatment and beyond, our dentists and staff strive to ensure your visits are as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Everyone in your family is welcome at our practice, and our team strives to ensure everyone feels welcome and relaxed at every appointment.

Better for Children

Since children typically have less developed teeth, they may require more frequent visits to the dentist than an adult would. The dentist can help your child develop a healthy oral hygiene routine at home and schedule regular appointments for monitoring and preventative care. This will help reduce the likelihood of cavities and other common oral health problems. Children are also more prone to developing orthodontic issues, such as crooked teeth and misaligned bites. A family dentist can also monitor the development of these issues and recommend orthodontic treatment if necessary or beneficial. This helps to prevent the need for more intensive treatment in the future, such as tooth extraction or oral surgery. Many adults choose to continue visiting their family dentists throughout their lives for affordable and effective dental care.
