Family Dentistry and Over-all Oral Health at Marina Del Rey Dentistry
Here at Marina Del Rey Dentistry “Family Dentistry” is offered with the most affordable consultation fee and quality service. When you talk about family dentistry, it involves the medical services which include the over-all maintenance of oral health and hygiene for patients in different age groups. The family dentist’s goal is to maintain low levels of plaque build-up around the teeth of his/her patients, fill and treat cavities, eradicate tooth decay and keep their patient’s gums healthy.
Family dentistry is considered as the primary level of defense to prevent serious dental problems. The “American Dental Association” or ADA advises the general public to visit their family dentist for a regular check-up in a minimum of two check-ups per year. During these check-ups the patient should have his/her teeth undergo general or deep cleaning to prevent plaque build-up which usually causes tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are also recommended to aid in coating the teeth to make it stronger and less prone to the said decay. If during the check-ups, a cavity is detected – a filling can be done to prevent any serious progression of any tooth problem. All these services are offered here Marina Del Rey Dentistry with the most optimum level of customer service.
Family Dentist Qualifications
Family Dentists first needs to earn an undergraduate degree and pass the “Dental Admission Test” or DAT and complete a three to five year of dental school to be certain that he/she will possess the competitive traits to give excellent service to patients as a dentist. The school of dentistry is an intensive curriculum in medical school. After the student graduates, he/she must ace the “National Board Dental Examinations” or NBDE to get a license to be able to practice his/her profession.
