Family Dentistry Q&A

What is family dentistry?

John H. Hartman DDS is proud to provide the community with family dentistry, meaning that the office serves all ages. An entire multi-generational family, including toddlers, teens, adults, and seniors, can all share the same dental care under one roof.

What are the benefits of family dentistry?

There are several advantages to having Dr. Hartman look after the oral health of your entire family.

If your children are just beginning to see a dentist, they might feel more at ease and comfortable with a familiar face: mom or dad’s dentist. And because Dr. Hartman treats patients of all ages, you don’t have to look for a new dentist for your children when they get too old for their pediatric practice.

When you’re able to see the same dentist from adolescence through adulthood, you also enjoy a continuity of care that can significantly benefit your oral health. The longer he treats you, the more familiar Dr. Hartman becomes with your dental history. 

Seeing a family dentist can also greatly improve the logistical considerations of dental care. Instead of having to drive everyone in your family to a different office every six months when it’s time for their routine cleaning and exam, you can block an afternoon of appointments and get it all done in one welcoming office.

What family dentistry services do you offer?

Dr. Hartman offers a full spectrum of general and cosmetic services, including:

  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Implant dentistry

The best way for a family to maintain optimal oral health and beautiful smiles is to practice good preventive care, which involves proper at-home care like brushing and flossing and maintaining regular checkups and exams with Dr. Hartman.

How often should my family get cleanings and exams?

Generally speaking, most people should schedule a routine exam and cleaning once every six months. Ultimately, though, your cleaning schedule depends on the current state of your oral health and your unique dental needs.

Some patients are less prone to cavities and have an easier time keeping their mouth clean, and therefore might not need cleanings as often. Other patients have teeth that are simply more susceptible to decay, and might need more frequent cleanings.

If you have gum disease, Dr. Hartman recommends more frequent cleanings until your condition is under control. To learn more about family dentistry, schedule a visit with Dr. Hartman today by calling the office or booking online.
