Family Dentistry in Rapid City, SD

Family Dentistry in Rapid City, SD

While most people are familiar with “family doctors,” a family dentist is slightly different. A family dentist provides routine dental care for various patients, including children, teenagers, adults, and seniors. In addition to caring for a patient’s teeth, the dentist may provide regular cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions, and other general dentistry services. The benefit of seeing a family dentist is that they know the personal health history of everyone in the family and can treat everyone accordingly. For example, they may recommend fluoride treatments or night guards for children to prevent tooth decay. Adults may require teeth whitening services or crowns to teeth that have experienced a large amount of wear and tear over the years. And for seniors, we may be able to provide them with dentures or other restorative procedures to restore their smile. A family dentist can perform oral surgery, sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, gum therapy, and more.

The Benefits of Family Dental Care

Consistency of Care

When you visit a family dental practice, you can look forward to the same kind of care from your dentist for every patient in the family, rather than going to a different dental office every time a particular family member needs a checkup or procedure (e.g., going to a pediatric dentist when your child needs a dental checkup). This consistency leads to better oral health for everyone and ensures that your children feel comfortable getting their teeth checked every year at the same time everyone else does.

A Tailored Approach to Treatment

Your family dentist will work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your household's needs. From routine preventive care to procedures like braces and dental implant placement, you can trust that you’ll receive quality, comfortable care for the whole family from a dental office whose priority is the health of your teeth.

We focus on maintaining your oral health and providing a relaxing environment for you to receive care.
