A Bacolod family dentist is something that I prayed for when we started having children. Since I am very particular with dental health, I knew that I had to partner with a good dentist for that. And we got three at Comfydent Dental Clinic.

Why Choose a Family Dentist?

A family dentist understands how children’s teeth change with age. Additionally, they also recognize that children may fear going to the dentist, so they are more sympathetic. To avoid this, we have been bringing the kids with us to the dentist since two years old.

Family dentists employ a gentle approach so that children will develop positive associations with regular dental checkups. Their pediatric clinics are well-lighted and have decor that are appealing to children.

Benefits of Having a Family Dentist

Here are the things that make it worth it to have a family dentist.

Convenience of Visits

Family dentists, especially multi-specialty ones, are equipped to provide care and treatment for all ages and various dental problems. No need to go to several doctors just to get things done.

I really appreciate having a family dentist. So convenient!

Additionally, they have your record and history, so there’s no need to detail your condition with every visit.

Scheduling Appointments

The staff of our dentist reminds us when it’s time for a visit. They send us a text message every six months so that we can schedule a cleaning.

I also appreciate the fact that they accept appointments. There are Bacolod dentists that only offer the first-come, first-serve system. It’s really a waste of time, having to wake up early and go to the clinic just to be the first one on the list.

However, I just want to mention that there is still some waiting to be made because the dentists also try to serve all their patients well. But it’s okay, it’s better than waiting for God knows how long just to get treated. And since we knew that there will be a waiting time, we brought our kids’ homeschooling lessons.

Detection of Dental Problems

Regular and consistent visits to our family dentist lead to the early detection of problems. For example, I didn’t know that Shane already had permanent molars. And since we don’t get to brush that part well because of her poor gag reflex, it now has a cavity.

So the dentist cleaned that tooth and filled it today to prevent further deterioration. Thankfully, it was discovered early. And we will have to keep brushing that area very well.

Prevention

A family dentist usually gives advice on how to avoid general problems like tooth decay. They also show our kids how to properly brush teeth. In order to avoid future problems, they apply sealant and fluoride protection on the teeth.

Recommending Treatments

Family dentists can recommend prevention and treatments effectively because they know the history of their clients.

When our eldest Shawna’s permanent teeth were growing, they were big and misaligned. Our family dentist recommended pre-orthodontic trainer for kids or T4K.

Updates

Having a family dentist means getting updates on oral health as well as new technologies and products that you can use.

One of the new dental products that the dentists at Comfydent Dental suggested to me is the Curaprox Ultra Soft toothbrush. It’s awesome especially for those with sensitive gums and from those who suffer from gingivitis.

The only downside is the cost — it’s way more expensive than regular toothbrushes. But honestly, the difference in brushing comfort is worlds apart. Now, my gums are spoiled rotten and it doesn’t want to be touched by other brands. Uggh. Time to re-align the family budget. haha

5 thoughts on “Benefits of Having a Family Dentist

  1. I am blessed to have a family friend whom we consider as our family Dentist. My son has autism and that is one factor I always consider, he should be comfortable with the Dentist, it is so hard if ever he will have a “trauma” and good thing my Tita is very hands on 🙂

    1. Oh you are so right. Kids without handicaps can get scared, how much more if they have autism. Glad you have found a dentist for your son. I know of friends who also have two kids in the spectrum and they also go to Comfydent. 🙂

  2. Probably about time to have another visit to our dentist with the kids and have their teeth checked.

    If budget allows, we would definitely check out Comfydent Dental 🙂 I like the idea that they would update clients of their next appointments, esp since some of us tends to be forgetful every now and then, with our busy schedules and all. And reading about their services makes me confident that my kids would no longer fear having to take a visit with their dentist. 🙂

    1. Visit Comfydent Dental moms. One of the best Bacolod dental clinics to date. Their facilities are modern and the dentists are young and always up to date with the latest in dental products and technologies. I am a stickler to oral health, so regular visits to the dentist is a must for our family. 🙂

  3. Truly, a family dentist can be a gem. Ours became a family friend becoz I gave her (and her assistants) such a hard time on my first visit 😁 A hard time is such an understatement, lol. After much kicking and screaming (about half a day and I’m not exaggerating), I had to admit she was a good one. She also saved my sister & I from expensive braces and offered us a cheaper alternative.
