Family Dentistry

Being a parent means you always have something to do. Cooking, cleaning, soccer practices, appointments – there’s a never-ending list of responsibilities and obligations. And of course, your family’s health and well being are at the forefront.  When you’re considering a family dentist, there’s probably a lot you want to know. The good news is that the team at Filgiano Dentistry are here to answer all your family dentistry questions

What is family dentistry, anyway?

Of course, the first thing you need to know about family dentistry is what it is.

If you’re looking for a dentist that offers a full suite of solutions for your family, then a family dentist is a great option. No matter what your age, your dental hygiene and health are important. Family dentists are trained to take care of your teeth no matter how old you are. Whether your newborn needs their tongue-tie tended to, or you’ve got a toothache that won’t quit, family dentists are trained to deal with whatever issues you might have. 

Family dentists versus general dentists: what’s the difference?

On the surface, family dentists and general dentists can appear to do the same thing. Both are concerned with oral care at all stages of life, and act as a primary dental care provider.  The main difference is that family dentists have specific experience working with kids and teenagers.

We here at Filgiano Dentistry have years of experience working with kids of all ages, and know that creating a comfortable space for your children is important. We take the time to make sure your child has a positive experience when they come to us, and hopefully a visit to the dentist is something they look forward to.

Why do you need a family dentist?

The fact that you’re reading this assures us that you’re aware of the need for good dental hygiene and care.  But the question remains, why do you need a family dentist?

Growing bodies have growing teeth, and therefore they have specific needs. Having a dentist who understands the requirements of every stage of your child’s development ensures they’re getting the best care possible.

At Filgiano Dentistry, we realise that for kids, a trip to the dentist can be a scary thing. That’s why we work hard to create a friendly atmosphere. We strive to make a comfortable environment for you and your family, so that a trip to the dentist feels more like a visit to a friend than to a stuffy, scary old office.
