Family Dentistry

Considered to be the first level of defense against dental problems and abnormalities, family dentistry is viewed primarily as preventive dentistry. The American Dental Association recommends visiting your family dentist for a checkup at least twice a year.

Family dentists provide services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health for a wide range of patients, from young children to the elderly. What services can you expect from family dentistry?

  • Cleanings
  • Fillings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Extractions

Family dentists will regularly check for cavities and take x-rays when necessary. If your dental problem needs specialty treatment, a family dentist will refer you to specialists.

At Dr. Matthews, our dentists have pursued additional training in cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants and cosmetic dentures. We are constantly striving to improve the patient experience for the entire family.
