A family dentist is much like a family doctor – they are your first point of contact for any questions or concerns you have about your dental health or if you are experiencing any abnormal symptoms related to your teeth, gums, or mouth. They are also focused on preventative and proper care of the teeth, gums, and mouth for patients of all ages, starting even before young children have their first tooth. Family dentists will perform regular checkups and cleanings, provide patients with the proper techniques for brushing and flossing, and perform preventative screenings, such as x-rays, to monitor for early signs of concern.
By having a family dentist, you will have a single saved location for all of your dental records, as well as the dental records of any family members, to help monitor for dental diseases or conditions that run in the family. A family dentist can also ensure that any necessary information is shared with dental specialists, as needed for additional treatments, and keep track of any specialist treatments to have all procedures documented together.
There are many options available to help you choose a family dentist, and with dentistry being a common discipline, there are certainly lots of family dentists to choose from. First and foremost, you need to figure out what is most important to you in a dentist, as well as other key insights that will help you to narrow down your search. You need to think about their location and hours, as many clinics are open the same Monday to Friday daytime hours as a lot of people have to work. Finding a clinic that is open on evenings and weekends may be important to you. Also, if you know of any existing conditions that you or any of your family members has, finding a dentist familiar with that condition could be incredibly important as this could potentially save you a trip to a specialist for treatment.
Acceptance of your insurance policy can also be important, and if they are able to direct bill to the insurance versus you having to pay up front and submit to insurance yourself. Once you’ve considered all of the factors that are important to you, you should have a narrowed down list. From there, you can book a meet and greet appointments with your top choices. You can sit down and meet with them to ask any remaining questions and get a feel for their personality and professionalism.
Family dentists are largely focused on preventative care of the teeth, mouth and gums, starting before patients even get their first teeth, and continuing on through the course of a patient’s life. Many of the procedures they perform are preventative in nature, although some may offer cosmetic treatments as well. While it is best to check with your individual dentist, as well as your insurance company, most family dentists will accept insurance from a wide range of insurance companies. Your insurance company may have a list of preferred medical professionals that they will provide coverage for, or enhanced coverage, so it is best to reach out to them as well to see what your particular insurance company prefers.
It is also a good idea to get an understanding of how billing and coverage works to ensure that you aren’t out of pocket for too much should you need further treatment in the future. Working with your dentist and insurance company will ensure that everyone is aware of what is covered and what the best process is for determining how much, if anything, of future treatments, will be eligible for coverage.
