Family Dentistry Q&A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is a dental specialty that focuses on providing comprehensive oral health care for patients of all ages, including children, adolescents, and teenagers. 

At Eric Klein D.D.S. & Associates, the team delivers exceptional care for the whole family. The team has the training and qualifications to care for your children as they grow.

What does family dentistry include?

Eric Klein D.D.S. & Associates performs numerous family dentistry services at their office, including:


Teeth cleanings

A teeth cleaning is a preventive treatment that removes plaque, a sticky bacteria, from your teeth. Without treatment, plaque releases toxins that erode your tooth enamel and cause cavities (tooth decay). Bi-annual teeth cleanings are essential to preserve your family’s oral health.


Dental exams

Dental exams are preventive screenings that allow the team to evaluate your oral health. During these bi-annual assessments, the team checks your teeth for decay and erosion. They also assess your gums and the tissues inside your mouth to identify signs of gum disease, oral cancer (using VelScope technology), and other dental ailments.


Dental sealants

A dental sealant is a protective coating that seals out bacteria. The team may recommend sealants for your child if they have teeth in danger of developing cavities.


Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are attractive alternatives to traditional amalgam (metal) fillings. These restorations treat cavities (tooth decay) using materials that blend in with the natural shade of your teeth.


Nutritional counseling

Absorbing nutrients requires healthy teeth and gums. As holistic dentistry providers, the team prioritizes whole-body care that starts with educating patients on proper nutrition.


Fluoride treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that can strengthen and remineralize teeth for enhanced strength. The team may recommend regular fluoride treatments at your child’s bi-annual teeth cleaning and dental exam.

Why is family dentistry important?

Family dentistry strives to provide comprehensive care throughout life, with a strong focus on preventive treatments. Keeping your children’s smiles healthy now can help them avoid costly and invasive restorative treatments, like crowns and bridges, in the future.
