Your Family Dentists serving Alexandria, VA
We want our patients in Alexandria to know that a family dentist is similar to a general dentist, as each provides services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health. While both terms can be used interchangeably, there is a slight difference between the two.
What is a Family Dentist?
There are dentists that restrict their practice to certain age groups, while our family dentists will care for your entire family—from young children to older adults. Both of our family dentists are responsible for ensuring that plaque buildup around the teeth is kept to a minimum, that tooth decay is eliminated and cavities are filled, in order to maintain healthy smiles for your entire family.
When should I visit a family dentist?
Considered to be the first level of defense against dental complications, a family dentist is viewed as your first step for preventive care. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you visit your family dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. These dental checkups help to ensure the health of your teeth and gums while eliminating plaque buildup and the prevention of tooth decay.
Let our family dentists monitor the condition of your family’s dental health while keeping an updated record of your dental history to ensure healthy, happy smiles for a lifetime. To make an appointment with our dentists at Gibberman Dental, call (703) 823-6616 today!
