What Is Family Dentistry?
Family dentistry is used to refer to dental services for patients at all stages of life, from babies to seniors and everyone in between. You might consider your family dentist to be similar to your primary care physician, but for your teeth and gums—you’ll see your family dentist for preventative care and most other dental issues. If you require specialized care, such as oral surgery or braces, we can refer you to a specialist and work closely with them to ensure that you receive the care you require.
Benefits of Family Dentistry
Dental Home for the Whole Family
Coordinating dental care for your family is easier when you share the same dental home.
Every Age and Stage
There’s no “aging out” of seeing a family dentist, so you won’t need to find a new dentist for your kids when they reach their teens.
Routine dental checkups, cleanings, diagnostic services, and other treatments and procedures that keep your teeth and gums healthy are all considered preventative dentistry. Visiting the dentist for preventative care every six months is one of the best things you can do for your smile!
Restorative dentistry involves restoring the health, function, and appearance of teeth that have been damaged by dental trauma or decay. Dental fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants are among the treatments available.
Cosmetic dentistry boosts your confidence if you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth. Invisalign, bonding, veneers, and whitening treatments are all available to improve your smile by correcting cosmetic imperfections.
Why Choose New Baltimore Family Dentistry?

What does family dentistry mean?

How often should kids see the dentist?
Children should visit their dentist every six months for comprehensive oral evaluations and dental cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
