Are you looking for a friendly and professional Calgary dentist who can meet your and your children’s oral health care needs? Here are some tips and tricks for finding the top family dentist in your area.


Good oral health is important at every age. Healthy gums and teeth are important for a lot more than an attractive smile — they also signal good general health and a personal sense of well-being — which is why practicing proper dental hygiene at home is so important for you and your family. 

Here are some tips you can follow to protect your family’s oral and overall health 

  • Schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings with your holistic family dentist 
  • Avoid frequent snacking and limit your family's intake of sugary, starchy foods. Replace them instead with raw vegetables, whole grains, and fresh fruits
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once a day
  • Invest in custom mouthguards for family members who play sports to protect their teeth and gums from injury 

If you neglect to take care of your teeth at home and don't visit your holistic family dentist regularly, you could be at an increased risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. The good news is that changing your oral health care habits will make it more likely that you and your family will achieve and maintain a lifetime of total well-being.

Tips and Tricks for Finding the Best Family Dentist in Your Area

If you want to look after your family’s oral health, then finding the best family dentist should be your number one priority. Whether you have recently moved to a new area or you’re ready to move on from your current dentist, here are five tips and tricks to help you find the best dentist for your family’s needs: 


1. Ask family and friends for recommendations:

One of the best places to start when looking for a family dentist is asking family, friends, co-workers, and even your primary care doctor for recommendations. Once you have a list of potentially reliable and excellent dentists, you can do more research to see which ones are currently accepting new patients.

2. Check the dentist’s health insurance policy: 

The cost of dental treatments will vary from clinic to clinic and you want to find a dentist you can afford. If you are going to be paying through health insurance, first confirm that the dentist you’d like to visit accepts your provider. You can usually find this information on their website or by calling their clinic.


3. Pay attention to the hours and location: 

Trying to juggle the varying schedules of family members can be a huge challenge, so make sure you find a dentist who has convenient hours that align with your routine. This means that you won’t have to rearrange your family’s daily routine to get them the oral care they need. Make your life easier by focusing on dentists who are close to you so you won’t have to waste too much time getting to and from the clinic.


4. Ask for a consultation before booking your first appointment: 

If anyone in your family has anxiety about visiting the dentist, asking for a consultation prior to booking an appointment can help them feel more at ease. While you are at this consultation, get to know the dentist more and ask questions about their services and care. If your family has a positive experience, you can feel confident when booking your first appointment.


5. Visit the dental clinic: 

Visiting a dentist’s office will tell you a lot about their quality of care. Not only will you learn how clean the facility is, but you’ll also have a chance to interact with the staff and see how friendly and professional they are. While you are looking around, make sure to inspect the equipment. The best dentists invest in the latest technology to provide the highest quality of care for their patients.

FAQs 

Q: At what age should my child start seeing the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children first see a dentist as early as six months of age and no later than one year of age. During this time, your child will have some of their baby teeth and your dentist can examine the health of them. After this first visit, be sure to schedule regular checkups every six months.


Q: How often should an adult see the dentist?

Children, teens, and adults should visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and checkup. Patients who are at a greater risk of gum disease or oral cancer might be required to visit their dentist more frequently. 


Q: How can I schedule my next checkup?

Simply call our dental clinic! Our team will be happy to help schedule your next appointment at your convenience. If you are a new patient, please let us know and we will provide you with all the information you require for your first dental visit.
