understanding the basics
what is family Dentistry?
Family dentists are distinct from pediatric dentists because they treat patients of all ages. While a pediatric dentist only treats kids, a family dentist, or “general dentist” will treat your entire family, regardless of their age.
In most cases, family dentistry is primarily focused on preventive care like teeth cleanings and oral exams, as well as restorative procedures like fillings and crowns for cavities. Depending on the family dentist, however, you may also be able to get cosmetic treatment, orthodontic consultations, and even dental implants and other advanced treatments.
of seeing a family dentist
Wondering why you should see a family dentist? Convenience is one of the biggest benefits. At the office of an experienced family dentist like Dr. Jeron Winslow, you can get expert care for your entire family under one roof. Coming to The Grove Family Dental as a “one-stop-shop” for dental care ensures you do not have to visit multiple dentists and specialists in the area, saving you quite a bit of time and money, in most cases.
If you have kids, a family dentist is also a great choice because they can grow with your family, and see your kids throughout every stage of their lives as they grow and mature, tracking their oral health, providing advice on proper oral care, and developing a real relationship with you and your family members.
You will also benefit from customized and personalized dental care after seeing Dr. Winslow and the team at The Grove Family Dental. We will learn more about you, your family members, and your unique dental challenges, and develop custom treatment plans to keep your mouth healthy.
what to expect
from your first visit
At your first visit, you will get x-rays from one of the team members at The Grove Family Dental, so that Dr. Winslow can check your oral health and identify past dental work and any other issues he may need to know about.
Then you’ll get a teeth cleaning from one of our hygienists, who will scale your teeth to remove plaque, polish your smile, and floss your teeth to remove any remaining particles. Then, Dr. Jeron Winslow will provide you with a comprehensive oral exam and oral cancer screening.
Once your exam is over, Dr. Winslow will discuss your oral health with you, and any follow-ups or additional treatments that may be required. He can also answer any questions you may have about at-home oral care, caring for your children’s teeth, and other such dentistry-related questions.
