With the hype of pediatric dental practices, it is hard to understand whether family members need to see separate dentists or if they are better off seeing the same dentist. Because pediatric dental practices have been a “fad” over the last decade, it has given many doctors and parents undue concern and has caused many parents to be inconvenienced from running around town to different dental practices. Many people have lost hope that they can find a dental practice that will serve the needs of everyone in their family, causing many to give up going to the dentist altogether.
Heritage Dental is proud to serve patients of all ages. We offer exceptional dental care as a family dental practice here in Katy, Texas. Dr. Hieu Nguyen leads our dental practice with his Doctorate of Dentistry, extensive work with pediatric, geriatric, and special needs patients, and remains an active member of the American Dental Association and Texas Dental Association. He has great knowledge as a dentist and offers compassionate care to all of his patients.
A family dental practice has many benefits that other dental practices, which are geared for specific ages, do not. Convenience is a huge benefit, especially for parents of multiple children. Taking children to multiple dental appointments throughout the year to different dental practices is enough to cause more than a few gray hairs! At Heritage Dental we offer family appointments so that each family member can be seen in back-to-back appointments. This keeps parents from having to take children out of school multiple times, take time off work multiple times, and allows everyone to be on the same dental schedule. The greatest benefit of a family dental practice, however, is that one doctor becomes familiar with the oral health of an entire family. Due to genetics, an issue that a mother or father has can easily be an issue that one or more of their children will also have. Therefore, a specific problem can be caught early on in a child’s mouth in order to prevent the same issues that a parent has had. Having the same trained eye examine a family’s teeth and mouth on a continual basis allows a dentist and dental hygienists to become familiar with the dental history of an entire family and give them the highest standard of comprehensive and preventive care.
Please contact Heritage Dental to schedule an appointment for your family. With our flexible payment schedules, acceptance of dental insurance, and affordable fees, we are the dental practice that you can trust and afford.
