There are certain telephone numbers that families keep closely available. The family doctor is on that list and the very next number on that priority list is usually the dentist. Dentistry plays a large role in keeping families healthy as parents age and children move from infancy through childhood, adolescence and young adulthood.
In Sacramento, your choices are as wide and varied as the unique dental needs of each family member. Some dentists promote their areas of specialty, such as pediatric or cosmetic dentistry. For the general needs of the entire family, a family practice is the most appropriate choice. Your family dentist acts as your general practitioner with regard to oral health. If there are further issues that require a referral, such as misaligned teeth or advanced periodontal disease, this professional will recommend the best course of care for those specific problems.
It takes work to find the perfect dentist for your family. Checking social media, friends’ recommendations and professional dental organizations is a good place to start. Making an initial appointment will give you ample opportunity to interact, discuss your family’s needs, and ask questions, such as insurance concerns. Finding the right family dentist is one of the most important decisions you can make. We at Artisan Dentistry in Sacramento hope that you make our practice your home.
