Running a family, especially a busy one, is no easy task. From the kids’ sports practices and ballet recitals to your work meetings and daily schedule, it can be hard to keep track of who needs to go where and when. However, your family Columbus, GA dentist at North Park Family Dentistry can help you tame at least one area of your life with family dentistry.Family Dentist

What makes family dentistry special? 
Dentists tend to specialize in one age group. Some focus only children and some only see adults. Family dentists specialize in all age groups, from your teething toddler to your denture-wearing grandmother and everyone in between.

The Benefits of Family Dentistry
Family dentistry allows you ease of scheduling so that your entire family can see the dentist in one trip. The lack of scheduling conflicts allows you to save yourself the time and confusion of running from dentist to dentist. Since the kids’ appointments can be scheduled at once, it saves you a trip and perhaps even taking a day off work. With all of your information in one place, the need to call around to transfer records is eliminated. Additionally, your Columbus dentist can get to know your whole family, forging bonds that are priceless.

How can my family avoid cavities between visits? 
A strong at-home oral routine is crucial to keeping the teeth of people of all ages healthy and decay-free. With their love for candies and sugary snacks, children are especially notorious for getting cavities. Be sure that everyone in your family brushes their teeth at least twice a day and flosses once to reach the plaque and buildup which toothbrush bristles cannot. Finally, the strongest weapon in your oral health arsenal is your dentist. Everyone in your family should see your dentist at least twice a year for regular examinations and cleanings.

One of the most pressing issues for new families who have just moved into an area is finding good, quality medical care for their children and themselves. Thankfully residents of Columbus, GA who are looking for a good family dentist don’t have to look very far or long—Dr. Tyler K. Myers, DMD of North Park Family Dentistry, offers full-service family dentistry at his practice on Capstone Court. His office looks just like a quaint, modern single-family residence where his patients can feel right at home.

New to Town? 

Dr. Myers is a member of the ADA and a community volunteer who provides quality dental services to Columbus area residents. He is a proud father himself, so he understands the importance of finding a reliable dentist when a family has just moved into town. It can be difficult for patients to let go of their attachment to their former dentist and adjust to a new one.

Creating a Positive Dental Experience 

The main goal of most parents is to find a family dentist that is not only reliable but kind and compassionate. No parent wants their child to feel fearful of the dentist because it can be detrimental to their future dental health. Ideally, children will continue to seek, as adults, a dentist with the same qualities and maintain a healthy view of visiting the dentist on a regular basis.

Dental Office Conveniently Located in Columbus 

Besides their children’s comfort, the other main concern for parents is convenience. It’s important that the dentist is local to the area—only a short drive away. A family of four will visit the dentist for basic checkups at least eight to 10 times per year, and that doesn’t include additional visits to correct cavities, get braces or have root canal treatment. This is why it’s so important for most parents to find a dentist that’s local. Dr. Myers’ Columbus dental office is in a very convenient location for Columbus, Georgia residents.
For a highly qualified and convenient family dentist in the Columbus area, residents can call on Dr. Tyler Myers. Appointments can be requested by calling (706) 507-0606.
