Family Dentistry

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry refers to the “one-stop” approach to dentistry that Dr. Felix provides. She offers high-quality dental care to anyone in your family, whether it’s dealing with teaching good oral hygiene habits to your child, or addressing your oral health as an adult later in life. It’s convenient and ideal for all members of your family to seek dental care at the same office.

Family dentists like Dr. Felix are specially trained to treat children and make visits to the dentist’s chair comfortable and even fun, not scary. Dr. Felix is also skilled when it comes to saving your natural teeth, or in cases of missing teeth, restoring your smile with cosmetic dentistry services.

What family dentistry services are available?

At Vista Family Dental Care, Dr. Felix routinely sees children for dental appointments starting at a young age to educate them on proper brushing and flossing techniques. These habits, if established early on, can help minimize the risk of future oral health problems and promote good oral hygiene.

Dr. Felix also provides standard family dentistry services such as:

  • Fluoride treatments
  • Regular professional teeth cleanings
  • Treatments for cavities and gum disease
  • Standard annual checkups
  • Endodontics (tooth saving treatments)

She also performs more in-depth screenings such as X-rays when you report symptoms like tooth pain, tooth sensitivity, or irritated gums. Depending on your condition, Dr. Felix can also recommend other services to restore your smile if you have damaged or weakened teeth.  

Why is family dentistry important?

What makes family dentistry unique is its focus on treating children. Not only is it convenient for you to get your child excellent dental care at the same office you visit, but going to see a talented family dentist like Dr. Felix sets your child up for a future with strong, healthy teeth and gums.

If your child doesn’t address their oral health early on in life, they’ll have an increased risk of developing gum disease or experiencing tooth decay in their later years. Building up good oral hygiene habits as a child is essential.
