Choosing a Family Dentist
When looking for a dentist, you’ve probably seen terms like “general dentist” and “family dentist” thrown around quite often, but what is the actual difference? Which one would be best for your family?
Both are able to provide a wide array of dental services in order to help patients preserve their smile and dental health, but the key difference is that a family dentist is willing and able to serve patients of all ages. General dentists will often only see patients in a certain age bracket, while a family dentist is happy to treat grandkids to grandchildren and everyone in between!
This means that if you have a family, you can easily get everyone’s teeth taken care of by just one dentist. Dr. George Atsalis is proud to call himself a family dentist, so whether you bring your child or yourself in to see him, you can trust that he’ll be able to provide exactly what you need.
Another advantage of seeing a family dentist like Dr. Atsalis is that he’ll be able to take care of your family’s teeth throughout the different stages of your lives. A young child’s dental needs are much different from a teenager’s just like an adult’s are much different than a senior’s. Understanding these distinctions can make all the difference for a person’s dental care, so of course, you want a dentist who is completely familiar with them.
All in all, when it comes to taking care of everyone’s smile, a family dentist is clearly your best bet, and Dr. Atsalis is more than ready to fill that role. One of his favorite parts about his job is getting to know multiple generations within the same family and getting to see the children grow up. With him, you can trust that everyone you care about will always have a beautiful, healthy smile.
