Why is family dentistry important for oral health?

At Kennedy Dental, we put patients first. For us, this means a strong emphasis on prevention—the simple treatments of today to save you time and money in the future.

Besides our emphasis on preventive dentistry, we are also a family dentist first. For individual patients, this means our family dentists in Bellevue, NE has experience treating multiple issues across all age groups. For families, this means we can treat every member right here in our office.

How Family Dentistry Improves Oral Health

This means the dentist can fill your child’s tooth cavity in the morning and treat an older family member for periodontitis in the afternoon. It means professional teeth whitening before your next life event, followed by an Invisalign consultation the same day. A family dentist may also offer advanced services like TMJ and bruxism therapies. Family dentistry is about diversity and convenience.

Family dentists also emphasize prevention. That means regular dental exams and teeth cleanings to lower the risks for future complications like cavities, root infections, and gum disease. In addition, these types of exams help you keep your smile for life.

Preventive dental visits may include:

  • Comprehensive exams
  • Periodic x-rays
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Teeth cleanings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Dental sealants

Following exams, your dentist discusses all findings with you and is always happy to answer questions.

Family dentists may also offer convenient hours—our early morning appointment slots, for example—because they know how busy family life can be and want to make dentistry as accessible as possible. Convenience may also include special savings plans to help families gain better access to care financially.
