Have you been thinking about making the switch to a family dentist? Dr. Kenneth Sharp of Stonebridge Ranch Smiles in McKinney, TX, explains how you and your family can benefit when you all visit the same dentist.
Driving all over McKinney, TX to take your family members to their various dental appointments uses up your precious paid time off, increases wear and tear on your vehicle and forces you to spend more time in the car then you would probably like. Family dentists offer the ultimate in convenience. Thanks to the availability of family appointments, you can schedule one visit for the entire group on the same day.
Excellent care for the entire family
As their name implies, "family" dentists are skilled at treating dental issues that affect the entire family. There's no need for your children to see a pediatric dentist when a family dentist is skilled in diagnosing issues that can affect kids. Family dentists are equally at home treating problems that tend to occur in adults and senior citizens, such as gum disease or the need to replace missing teeth with dentures or dental implants.
Every year, family dentists take continuing education courses to ensure that they're knowledgeable about the latest dental techniques, advancements and treatments. Dr. Sharp is so committed to providing a high level of care that he spends more than 50 hours annually on continuing education, far exceeding the 12-hour requirement mandated by the State of Texas and the American Dental Association.
