FAQ For A Family Dentist

🦷 How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
  • Every six months is the recommended guideline for when to book a trip to the dentist, but every person’s oral health is unique. Depending on the state of your teeth and gums you may need to visit your local family dentist more often, or possibly less, in the 9-12 months range if you aren’t experiencing any issues, and your teeth are in decent shape.
🦷 When Should My Child Have Their First Visit To The Dentist?
  • Visiting the dentist early on and regularly can help to improve your child’s comfort level with going to the dentist. Which will lead to better oral health in the long run.  Here at Hawley Lane Dental, we recommend an initial assessment with a family dentist in your area around the one-year-old mark.
🦷 What Should I Consider When Choosing A Family Dentist?
  • A family dentist is hopefully a relationship that will last your lifetime, so choosing one can require a considerable amount of thought. When visiting the potential dentist’s office for the first time you should look at, how easy it is to book an appointment, are there significant wait times? How organized and clean is the office? Does the dentist explain everything he or she is doing? Is my family comfortable with the staff, how friendly are they? And does the dentist have a good reputation in the area?
