Dental Hygiene is important. Not taking good care of your teeth and gums today can have lasting effects down the road that may cause pain, as well as a sizeable dent in your wallet.

Getting in front of these issues early, especially for your kids, is important to the long-term health of your family.

When it comes to making sure that your family has the best dental care possible, there is really only one solution — a small, local dentist.

Today, we’re focusing on the benefits that small dentist offices can provide for you and your family.

Why Private Practices Are the Smart Choice For Your Family

Familiarity with Your and Your Family’s Needs

For anyone who has been to a smaller, private practice dental office, they’ll often say the best part about going there is the familiarity their dentist has with them. Not everyone loves going to the dentist (shocking, I know), and having someone you trust who knows your teeth inside and out can help calm any nerves.

You and your family will have a great rapport with the dentist and you’d be hard pressed to find a dental hygiene professional who has a family-friendly business that isn’t good with kids. This is another big benefit, as many young kids have trouble getting used to going to the dentist at first.

Overall, it’s nice to go to a dentist office where they remember your name.

The Care and Attention Your Family Deserve

In addition to familiarity, within these offices, you’ll find that your family will get the attention they deserve. Corporate dental offices tend to be run more like a conveyer belt at a manufacturing plant. Each dentist will move on to the next patient as quickly as they can, with the end goal to get through as many patients as possible.

At a smaller office, you’ll see how the dentist is more inclined to hear about how your day is going, how your family is, and overall make sure that your time is pleasant while you are in the office. Whether it’s for a regular check-up or a cavity filling, you’ll never feel like just another patient.

Warmer, More Friendly Atmosphere

Another benefit is the fact that smaller offices tend to have a more welcoming environment and atmosphere. This goes back to those who have anxiety about going to the dentist.

Instead of dreading your trip to the dentist, your family will look forward to the customer-service oriented staff and the overall warm vibe that the office gives off. This might not seem like a big differentiating point, but it can make all the difference in the world between a great experience at the dentist and a not so great one.

When it comes to dental procedures, many kids and even adults are frightened of the idea of novocaine — which is an extremely understandable fear.

This includes bonding, inlay/onlay restorations, composite fillings, crowns, veneers, canker sore removal, and desensitizing teeth. Laser technology allows for pain-free, efficient experiences at the dentist.
