Making an activity a family affair is most often beneficial. In particular, a family dental practice is great for everyone! Every member being able to visit a single dentist will help build your loved ones’ dental attitudes in a positive and collaborative way. Jepsen, Murphy & Associates offers services ranging from pediatric dentistry to dental restorations, as well as preventive dentistry for every age group. Read on to learn a few specific incentives for engaging in family dentistry.
Why Family Dentistry Can Improve Oral Health
When we do something on our own, we have less encouragement, which can lead to lowered enthusiasm. Working together toward any task will help you see that task’s completion. Dentistry is no different! By visiting a family dentist, you’ll enjoy benefits like the following:
- You and your children will build positive attitudes toward dentistry as a team. Dental anxiety is established at an early age. By showing your children that there’s nothing to fear, you’re helping them feel more comfortable with their own dental care for many years to come. Your children look up to you, and they will mimic your words and actions. Talking to them about the importance of dental exams will make an impression.
- Your children will feel more comfortable with their dentist and the office. Seeing the same dentist as their parents see will leave your children feeling reassured. Plus, they don’t have to deal with a scary new space – just return to one they’ve already visited with family members, and see the same smiling faces behind the front desk.
- Your entire family will learn more about oral hygiene and dental care – together. Working together toward healthy teeth is much more fun than going it alone. Get a brushing and flossing chart and encourage one another to keep up on oral health!
