What Makes Family Dentists Unique?
Family Dentists vs. General Dentists
General dentists typically treat adults and offer routine dental procedures. However, family dentists like Dr. Williams and Dr. Ma dedicate themselves to treating the entire family and patients of all ages. At EaDo Family Dentistry, we see children and grandparents at every stage of dental health. From infants to seniors, we treat all of our patients with the same level of respect and care.
That’s what makes a family dentist unique. By seeing a family dentist regularly, you cultivate a relationship with them over the years and ensure that your children get customized, gentle care throughout their entire childhood. Since your entire family can visit the same dentist for care, it this also makes it more convenient for you to schedule routine appointments for every member of your family.
Understanding The Importance Of Routine Dental Care
Family dentists primarily focus on routine dental care and preventive dentistry. At EaDo Family Dental, we believe in a conservative approach so we focus on preventing common issues like tooth decay and gum disease, as well as education to make sure our patients are taking proper care of their teeth and gums.
Here are just a few benefits of routine preventive care from a family dentist:
- Visiting us every six months allows us to track your oral health and identify potential concerns, like tooth decay that’s progressing into a cavity, or gingivitis.
- Regular cleanings and exams help us track your child’s dental development, and ensure their mouths are healthy.
- Seeing us for an oral exam and teeth cleaning can prevent issues like cavities, which may require a filling or crown, or even a root canal if left untreated. This means you can save both time and money, and avoid spending extra time in the dentist’s chair.
- Most dental plans cover a dental cleaning and oral exam every six months, so you may not even have to pay out-of-pocket for your appointment if you’re covered by dental insurance.
- You can ask any questions you have about caring for your own mouth, or keeping your child’s mouth healthy and preventing common oral health issues.
For these reasons and many more, you should always make it a point to visit your local dentist in Houston, TX every six months! You’ll save time, keep your mouth healthy, and enjoy plenty of other benefits!

During a pediatric dental exam, Dr. Williams or Dr. Ma will monitor your child’s formative years of dental health to predict changes in their dental health and prevent the need for larger or more expensive treatments down the line. Our mission is to help your child giggle and smile through their six month cleaning and exam and look forward to coming to the dentist every time!
Child’s First Visit
Dentists nationwide will agree that your child’s first dental appointment should occur within six months of the eruption of their first baby tooth. So if you’ve been experiencing late nights or early mornings as your red-faced baby begins to teeth, it might be time to schedule your child’s first visit to the dentist. Don’t be fooled when baby teeth fall out and new teeth come in! Your child’s first set of teeth often defines how his or her dental health will be affected over time. With regular visits to the dentist early on, your child’s oral health is monitored in its earlier stages to support better overall health over time.
