Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is oral health care for people of all ages. Parkside Dental offers dental treatments, orthodontics, and diagnostic technology to maintain or restore your oral health. 

The team helps you and all members of your family stay on track with oral health care and are ready to address your concerns. They encourage you to visit every six months for preventive teeth cleanings even when you don’t have tooth pain or any other indications of an oral health problem.

Which services does family dentistry offer?

Parkside Dental provides the full spectrum of dental treatments and services you need to keep your teeth healthy. You and your loved ones can come in for:

Dental cleanings and oral exams

Cleanings and exams typically happen during the same appointment every six months. The team looks for signs of oral health issues by evaluating your X-rays and digital impressions and uses the cleaning to remove plaque buildup. 


Orthodontic treatments align your teeth by moving them into proper alignment with dental devices. While some treatments are more complex, many people can align their teeth with traditional braces or clear aligners. 

Emergency Dentistry

Emergency dentistry addresses urgent dental concerns, like tooth decay, disease, and injuries. You might need extractions, root canal therapy, or other treatments when you visit with a dental emergency. 


Dental restorations replace missing or damaged teeth. They can also help cover imperfections in your smile. Crowns, bridges, veneers, and dentures are all available at Parkside Dental. 

When should I schedule family dentistry appointments?

At Parkside Dental, family dentistry covers babies, children, adolescents, and adults. The team is highly skilled in working with every age group, and can help your family maintain your smiles for life. 

It’s important to establish dental care for your children as early as possible. You should bring your child in for their first dental appointment by the time they’re one year old or whenever their first tooth erupts. The first dental visit involves a brief examination and possibly a gentle cleaning. It lasts for just 30-45 minutes, and the team makes sure your child feels comfortable and at ease during the appointment. 

For adults, you should schedule oral exams and dental cleanings every six months. You can schedule your dental visit at the same time as your children so you can save the trip to the office.
