What Are the Benefits of Choosing a Family Dentist?
For busy Elizabethtown families, it can be hard to keep track of who needs to see the dentist for a teeth cleaning, and when. It can also be quite hectic for mom or dad to take multiple days off work for everyone’s individual appointments and shuttling everyone around town for their respective dental treatments. Instead of trying to keep up with this chaos, why not choose one, high-quality dental practice that specializes in caring for every member of your family?
Elizabethtown’s Clagett Dental is a dental practice for everyone in your family. In addition to providing preventative treatments like bi-annual dental cleanings and dental interventions for adults, we also specialize in children’s dentistry too! Whether your family consists of you, a spouse, and children ranging from a little one who’s just cut his or her first tooth to a high school senior ready to fly the nest, our doctors have the training and experience of treating all age ranges, including senior citizen members of your family who might live with you like grandma and grandpa who may have more complicated dental requirements such as the need for dental implants or dentures.
Of course, there are many more reasons you should choose us as your family’s dentist. Additional benefits of working with Clagett Dental for your family’s dentistry needs include:
● Having one dental practice to work with for copays, billing statements, and more
● Building a relationship with our doctors so they can get to know your family and your unique needs over the years that you see us
● Streamlining appointments by being able to schedule the whole family’s bi-annual cleanings on a single day at one location
Is Choosing a Family Dentist Right for You?
Some parents think that they need to choose a kids’ dentist for their children. While it’s great for kids to see a dentist who is experienced with working with young patients, our doctors at our Elizabethtown family dentistry practice have that experience, and more!
Our experience in working with kids starts with our bedside manner. We understand that some kids have natural dental anxiety, so we work very hard to make them feel completely comfortable in our office and with our doctors. We know that since children can be naturally curious, their appointments may take longer than an adult’s appointments, we were absolutely happy to accommodate their needs! We want them to learn that the dentist is their friend and that proper oral hygiene is important to practice for life.
Additionally, we perform procedures that family members may need at any point in their lives. Common procedures we provide for all members of your family include:
● Dental exams
● Teeth cleanings
● X-rays, including x-rays for kids who may be nervous about having them taken
● Gum disease treatment
● Cavity fillings
● Same day crowns
● Dental implants, including teeth in a day
● ClearCorrect™ Aligners, which are an alternative to traditional braces
As you can see, we’re a full-service dentist for every member of your Elizabethtown family!
What Is the Cost of Visiting a Family Dentist?
At Clagett Dental, we work diligently to provide you with best-in-class dental care at a competitive price. We also accept a wide variety of dental insurances that local families have. The amount you will pay for your family’s visits and procedures will depend on your dental insurance provider, the coverages your specific plan offers, your copay amount, and whether or not you have an individual or family deductible to meet.
If you’re curious if we accept your insurance, or what your cost will be for an upcoming appointment or procedure, we’re happy to verify that amount with your insurance before you come in for your treatment. Simply call us at (270) 769-3306 to inquire.
What Is the Recovery Like With a Family Dentist?
The most common procedures we perform – family dental exams and dental cleanings – have no downtime. You and your family can come in anytime of the day and immediately go back to school, work, or your other daily activities.
Certain procedures, though, such as crowns, tooth extractions, and veneers, have different post-procedure recovery times and instructions. If you or your family member is scheduled for anything other than a dental exam or dental cleaning, our doctors will talk with you about your aftercare instructions and limitations during the appointment.
