How your family dentist in Milford can protect your family’s smilesfamily dentist

Your family’s smiles are important to them, and taking care of your family is important to you. It can be a complicated task scheduling and coordinating your family’s health care needs, but there is a way to make part of health care simpler for you and your family. You should have a family dentist. It’s important to have one dentist who can take care of the needs of everyone in your family.

Dr. Bruce Schechter in Milford, CT wants to share how having one dentist for your entire family can make your life easier and help protect your family’s smiles.

Having a family dentist can save you time; you can schedule more than one family member at a time, eliminating the need for many appointments.

Having a family dentist can save you money; with regular appointments, your family dentist will treat dental issues while they are small and less expensive, preventing them from developing into big, expensive dental problems.

Having a family dentist can save you stress; you won’t have to go to several different dental providers for different members of your family. Your family dentist can treat everyone in your family.

One of the most important benefits of having a family dentist is great access to dental care. This is especially important if you or a family member has a dental emergency or needs after-hours-care. You will receive prompt attention by a dentist you know and trust.

Each member of your family will have different dental needs, and Dr. Schechter can treat them all. For example:

Small children can benefit from preventive services including cleanings and fluoride treatments, and older children can benefit from preventive sealants, which are placed between the ages of 5 and 14.

Teens and young adults can benefit from both preventive and cosmetic dental services, including orthodontic treatment to create a straight smile.

Adults and seniors can benefit from preventive and restorative services including crowns, implants or dental appliances. If you need a root canal, Dr. Schechter can help with that too!

Choosing a family dentist is one of the most important choices you can make. You want a dentist who can handle any dental problem, and answer all of your questions. For more information about family dentistry call Dr. Schechter in Milford, CT today!
