I have been using the same family dentist in Clinton for a number of years now and ensuring that all of the family is signed up to the same dentist is something which is really going to offer you plenty of benefits. I have some friends who take the kids to a different dentist than they go to and it just sounds like way more trouble than it is worth. I would instead recommend that you put the effort in to find a great dentist and one which is happy to accept the whole family, and here is why.
The most obvious benefit here is that everyone can get seen at more or less the same time which saves you time and hassle, not to mention money. Instead of making multiple trips to different parts, you can simply arrange some consecutive appointments and then everyone can get seen together, doing things in any other way just seems strange to me.
Whilst all dental clinics can deal with adults not all of them are great at dealing with kids, a family dentist however is one which has dentists who are great with kids. This to be honest was my main reason for switching some years ago because my youngest just hated the experience and our old dentist never really seemed to know what to do with him. A family dentist is going to be well geared up for dealing with your kids no matter how nervous they may be, and there is something very relaxing for a parent when that happens.
Something which many don’t understand is just how nice it is to be familiar with your dentist and to have them get to know your family. Not only does this put me at ease when I go to the dentist but it is also something which helps out from a medical standpoint. Dentists know your teeth and anything which goes wrong or any early warning signs can be easily spotted. Seeing a different dentist every time is not something that I have ever been happy about and I would much rater that my dentist know a little about me and my family when I go to see them.
I have to say that there is also a cost saving to be made here and many family dentists will give you great prices if you are bring all of the family there. This may not be massive savings of course but the fact that they can trim a little off as a family discount is something that I for one will not be saying no to. This was never the main MO for switching to a family dentist but it is a nice little bonus which I enjoy.
These are just some of the benefits which you can count on when you take the whole family to the same dental clinic for check-ups and work.
