Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

As the name suggests, family dentistry means everyone gets dental care under one roof. It’s a chance for the whole family to get to know the staff and develop a relationship that lasts from generation to generation.

The dental professionals at Emery & Scuro, DMD, PC, have the training necessary to treat pediatric patients, teens, adults, and even seniors.

The most prominent advantage is the chance to make all of your family's dental appointments in one place. That means all the kids can have their dental check-ups in one day -- mom and dad, too. That is a convenience you don’t get when everyone goes to separate dentists.

Do babies need dental care?

Yes! Introducing a baby to the dentist at an early age eases some of the fear that can follow a person throughout their life.

By picking a family dentist early, your baby gets to know the doctor and staff while still young, which means less stress as they age.

When should the first dental appointment be for a child?

Ideally, a child should be seen at 18 months of age. That gives the dentist a chance to make sure everything is coming in correctly and provide mom and dad tips on dental hygiene and nutrition for the little one.

The staff at Emery & Scuro, DMD, PC, firmly believes that prevention is the key to lifelong dental health. Bringing a child to visit the dentist at a young age allows the staff to start that education early. That's a game-changer for children as they start school, become teens, and eventually parents themselves.

Without an initial exposure to the dentist, dental care can become a source of stress that leads to an adult's avoidance.
