Family Dentistry and General Dentistry: Are They the Same?

Family Dentistry Catonsville Dental Care
Family dentistry holds so much value 

Catonsville Dental Care specializes in family dentistry. You can feel a sense of peace knowing that we can care for your entire family’s dental health needs. Our dental professionals are compassionate, empathetic, and warm yet experts in their respective fields. Our Monday-Thursday office hours are until 8:00. We understand that being a parent involves compartmentalizing. 

For that reason, our hours are late so that you can fit a dental exam into your busy schedule. What’s even better is that when you opt for a dentist’s office that practices family dentistry, you don’t have to drive to another place because we’re a one-stop-dental shop. Family dentistry has more advantages than general dentistry, and we’ll explain why they are not the same. 

General Dentistry Defined 

General dentists, like any dentist, receive extensive education before they come into practice. Typically, that involves four years of undergrad followed by four years of dental school. The primary goal of a general dentist is to ensure that you have a healthy smile. This goal is, of course, the mission of all dentists. However, a general dentist does not cater to patients under the age of 16. If you’d prefer not to travel elsewhere to help your 10-year-old know the importance of brushing their teeth and not indulging in too many sugary sweets (particularly around Halloween), bring them to Catonsville Dental Care. 

General dentists typically handle: 

  • Invisalign
  • Root Canal Treatment
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Bonding
  • And More

If you need a specialized service, a general dentist can make referrals. 

Family Dentistry Defined 

The main difference between a family and a general dentist is that a family dentist practices dental services for all ages. Once again, instead of visiting multiple dentists, you can bring your entire family to us. We hone in on educating patients of all ages on teeth cleaning practices, from your toddlers to even the elders in your family who need reminding that cleaning their dentures is important. We also offer a relaxed and positive environment for those who experience anxiety. Whatever your concerns about dental health are, bring them to use.
