When is a dentist considered a “Family Dentist”?

Many dentists cater to one particular set of patients, such as pediatric dentists or geriatric dentists. Even a “general dentist” may provide services that are restricted to a certain age group. However, Dr. Dhulab is trained and skilled in providing all the basic dental services that any patient of any age would need.

When choosing a dentist for your family, it is always important to look beyond the services the dental team provides. The personality and “bed side manner” of both the dentist and the entire team is extremely important to take into account. You want to choose a dentist that is trustworthy, affordable and gentle when caring for your family. At our practice, you can trust Dr. Dhulab and his staff to provide gentle, caring dentistry that is personalized to your family’s needs. We treat you like our own family and put your oral health and comfort above everything. This is why our patients consistently choose us as their Matthews family dental practice.


Why Choose a Practice that Offers Family Dentistry?

Choosing a dentistry that offers services for the entire family not only saves you time, it saves you money. Specialty dentists offer the same level of quality as we do yet they are often significantly more expensive. We also save you time by providing convenient appointment times so that you can schedule dental visits for your entire family around your own schedule

We guarantee that your time is important to us. We never overbook as we are dedicated to providing timely and efficient dental work. We even allow you to fill out and submit your patient forms online so that you do not have to waste time in our office filling out paperwork. Everything we do at Idlewild Family Dentistry is done with your family’s time and needs in mind.

Our Family Dentistry Services

We provide a wide variety of dental services for patients of all ages and needs. Here are just some of our quality dental services you can expect at Idlewild Family Dentistry:

Fillings, Sealants and Fluoride Treatment

These services are great options for our younger patients. While fillings are vital for protecting against existing and future tooth decay and are used for patients of all ages, we strongly suggest sealants for younger children. Sealants are simply a thin, clear covering over the back molars to protect against decay. Often, young brushers cannot brush effectively and without sealants, they are vulnerable to tooth decay. Fluoride Treatment is another service that we suggest for patients of all ages, but young patients are especially in need of this treatment.


Root Canal Treatment

Unfortunately, anyone can suffer from a severely infected tooth. Regardless of your age or oral health status, tooth decay can result. When decay and infection reach the inner parts of the tooth, this can result in intense pain. Thankfully, our team at Idlewild Family Dentistry offers a method of restoring an infected tooth instead of extracting it. Our root canal treatment is effective, safe and treats the discomfort of an infected tooth.

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is damaged, cracked, chipped or needs extra protection, our team can provide restorative treatment with a dental crown. A crown covers and protects a vulnerable tooth to protect it from future damage or decay. At our office, we provide beautiful restorations that match the surrounding teeth and leave your smile looking better than before. We even guarantee to provide them in just one visit to our office thanks to our CEREC technology! Trust Dr. Mitesh Dhulab and his team when it comes to dental crowns.

Tips on Caring for Your Children’s Oral HealthPretty children

Educating our patients on how to care for their teeth between dental visits is important to our team. We also know how important it is for parents to teach young children how to properly care for their own teeth. That’s why we help parents by providing easy tips on how to care for their children’s oral health.

  • Teach them proper brushing/flossing habits- Once your child’s first tooth appears, begin to brush using a soft bristle brush and a very small amount of fluoride toothbrush (approximately the size of a grain of rice).
  • Teach your children to brush their teeth twice a day and to floss once a day.
  • Make sure your child gets accustomed to brushing their teeth for two full minutes.
  • Replace sugary drinks with water.
  • Ask your dentist about the benefits of placing sealants on your child’s molars to prevent against cavities.
