What parent isn’t busy? We know that it takes time to schedule appointments for everyone in your family. It is hard to balance all of the places you and your kids need to be on a daily basis. You should not have to do the same for your dentist appointments. But what is the difference between a general and a family dentist? Learn here and why you should choose Sherman Oaks Dental as your Naperville family dentist.
A general dentist receives extensive training and education. General dentists have a primary goal: to maintain a healthy smile. While this is also the purpose of all dentists, general dentists may restrict their patients to a specific age group. This does not work if you have to make an appointment for yourself and your 5 and 9 year old children. You will be running all over town for dentist appointments and we know as a busy parent you do not have time for that.
“One Stop” Solution
A family dental office has the convenience of a “one-stop” solution for all of your family’s dental health needs. Family care is unique because they provide a variety of treatments in the same office, whereas many practices are built around a specialty of some sort. They offer more than one specialized dentist in their practice. Whether you need a dentist that has experience with children or gum disease, you can find what your family needs in one office.
Similar to general dentist a family dentist is extensively trained. They must receive their undergraduate degree and attend dental school before they see any patients. The main difference between a general dentist and family dentist is that a family dentist performs dental procedures for all ages.

Whether they’re teaching a toddler proper brushing techniques, or showing an elderly patient the correct way to clean their dentures, family dentists will ensure you and your family maintains excellent dental care habits outside of the dental office.
