As we go through various stages of life our dental health takes different turns. From childhood to old age, our lifestyle, diet and health vary drastically. A dentist requires lot of experience to be able to treat patients of different age groups in their own way. Family dentistry is ideal since dentists who treat a family will be aware of the medical history of every person in the family. A family dental practice will be associated with a family for many years. This lets patients in the family feel more comfortable being treated from a dentist who is known to them for long. The treatment through family dentistry is focused on preventive care and hence good dental health is achieved by and detection and early treatment of infection or any defects. Through family dentistry dentists create healthy communities and beautiful smiles in a city.
