Family Dentistry Services In 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.  

Keeping your teeth clean now can pay huge dividends later, when having a clean bill of dental health can be the difference between losing your teeth and keeping them. Learning how to take care of your teeth is the first step toward keeping them healthy for the rest of your days.

At Gibberman Dental, you, your spouse, your kids, and everyone else under your roof can rest easy under our dental care in Alexandria, VA. 

What Is Family Dentistry?

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.

Oral Examination

During your family's initial consultation at Gibberman Dental, they'll receive a visual examination conducted by our doctors, followed by charting and periodontal probing before a personalized treatment plan is put into place. X-rays will also be taken of your family's periodontal structures so that a proper diagnosis can be made of any proximal decay existing in their teeth that would have otherwise been overlooked.
