Why Family Dentists Are The Best

A Place for the Entire Family

Hello there, and welcome back to the Kruckman Family Dentistry blog! As a dentist office in the Waconia area, we have spent a lot of time and energy making sure that we are able to provide the best family dentistry experience possible. Through a combination of a friendly, inviting atmosphere and comprehensive dental services, our dentist office is able to handle all of your family’s dental needs. Even though we know that our services are great, we realize that some people who read this post may not understand why a dentist that serves the entire family is something that they should even consider. To remedy this, we are going to use today’s post to go over some of the reasons that we feel family dentists are the best choice for families looking to make sure that all of their loved one’s dental needs are taken care of. Keep reading below to learn more.

Family Dentistry Brings it all Together

Traditionally, dentistry was split into two camps—pediatric and non-pediatric. It was thought that for adults and children to be able to receive the best in dental care, they needed to segregate the two fields. While this may have been an effective way to provide dental care in the past, we here at Kruckman Family Dentistry believe that providing services for the whole family under a single roof is the best way to go about providing exceptional dental services. Below, we have listed a few of the reasons that we feel this way.

  • Convenience: As most parents already know, coordinating dentist visit for themselves and their children can be quite a hassle. Either you have to schedule multiple appointments on separate days at different locations or you have to try and cram the appointments into a single day. When you choose us as your Waconia family dentist, scheduling is streamlined dramatically and the entire family can receive the services that they need at the same time and in the same building. This is extremely beneficial for families with multiple children and tight schedules because it can shave several hours of off of visits to the dentist.
  • Expansive Services: Another great benefit to choosing a dentist that specializes in family dentistry is the fact that they can meet all of your family’s needs, even as those needs change and grow. This benefit is especially beneficial for children because they will have a dentist who has literally been there for every step of their mouth’s development. Additionally, our staff takes great care in making sure that they take a gentle approach to the care of our younger patients. We want to make sure that we build a positive foundation with the children that visit our office so that they develop a positive association to not just their own oral health, but towards dental checkups and procedures as well.
  • Inherited Issues: When everyone in a family visits the same dentist, it is much easier for a dentist to spot issues that may run in the family. When parents show signs of oral health issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, the dentist can then make sure to give special care and attention to their children and watch for early warning signs of inherited oral health issues.
  • Dental Emergencies Handles: Adults are not the only members of the family that are vulnerable to chipping or cracking a tooth. Children are at the same level of risk as their parents in suffering tooth trauma. Because of this, it is nice to know exactly where to go if a dental emergency crops up for parents and children alike.
