What Are the Benefits of Family Dentistry?

It may come as a surprise, but not every dental practice accepts children and teenage patients. Some dental offices prefer to work with older adults who require restorative treatments like dental bridges, dentures, and implants. At Seasons of Smiles, our staff welcomes patients from all stages of life. We are proud to offer family dentistry services, such as routine cleanings, exams, and cavity treatments. If you are looking for a family dentist who can handle the oral health needs of your entire family, we welcome you to contact our Camden Maine office online or call (207) 236-4740.

What Does a Family Dentist Do?

Working with children and teenagers takes patience and a special type of care. This is part of what sets a family dentist apart from doctors who focus solely on performing restorative or cosmetic treatments. Our friendly staff understands the unique needs of busy families. Practicing family dentistry goes beyond performing procedures.  Our dentist, Dr. Norman Medina, and team members understand the importance of incorporating oral hygiene education into our interactions with patients. Teenagers, and especially children, are prone to developing cavities due to their diet and inconsistent oral hygiene habits. Often, tooth decay can be prevented through twice-a-year dental cleanings, the application of proper brushing and flossing techniques, and the use of preventative treatments that include fluoride and potentially sealants.  Family dentists also provide treatments for all stages of life. Teenagers and adults can benefit from Invisalign while older adults may require some of the restorative treatments, including dental implants, our dental practice offers.  By working with a family-friendly dental practice like Seasons of Smiles, your family can benefit from:

  • Prevention of dental problems: Dr. Medina will treat potential dental problems early on while teaching good oral hygiene habits to your children and teenagers. Preventative care is especially important for our younger patients so they can enjoy the benefits of good oral health for years to come.
  • A one-stop-shop for comprehensive dental services: While some dental offices focus on adult care or pediatric dentistry, Seasons of Smiles offers family dentistry treatments to patients of all ages, from children to older adults. 
  • A learning experience: Visits to the dentist should be fun and educational for your children and teenagers. Dr. Medina and our staff will take the time to teach the fundamentals of brushing while explaining why proper oral hygiene habits are important.
  • A familiar face: It is important for children to trust and feel comfortable with their dentist. Our office rarely has to refer out procedures, meaning your entire family can have a dental home through every stage of life.
