Family Dentistry

Family dentistry is a preventive field of dentistry that’s critical for the proper development of teeth and for good overall oral health and hygiene. But, at Dr. Robert C. Dost & Associates, family dentistry involves so much more than just coming in twice yearly for exams and cleanings. Our dental team in Woodbridge, VA, strives to cultivate and develop healthy oral habits for everyone in your household.

Family Dentistry Q &A

Lake Ridge Dental Associates

Why do I need a family dentist?

You need a reliable family dentist, like Dr. Dost and his associates, to help keep everyone in your household on track when it comes to oral hygiene. Making and keeping regular checkups and having your teeth cleaned and examined intermittently will help you, your spouse, and your children avoid more serious dental issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, or oral cancer.

Regular visits are key to the early detection and prevention of costly and painful dental problems. They’ll also help keep your family’s smiles bright, white and genuine. When you book your family’s dental visits with Dr. Robert C. Dost & Associates, you’re make an investment in their future.

What should I expect at my family dentistry appointment?

When you book a family dentistry appointment with Dr. Robert C. Dost & Associates, expect to feel at home. Bringing decades of experience to the table, our dental team is  friendly, compassionate, and trained to make you feel at ease while getting to the root of your dental issues.

At your first appointment, you’ll meet some of the staff, fill out a few forms, and talk about what prompted you to come in. Then you’ll receive a comprehensive dental exam, and Dr. Dost will make you aware of any issues he finds. After that, you’ll discuss your treatment options, and Dr. Dost will then create an individualized plan to address your specific needs.

What if my dental appointment reveals a bigger problem?

In a way, no matter what dental you’re diagnosed with, it’s actually a good thing: Dr. Dost has caught your issue and can now fix it. Early detection will help you avoid the pain of toothaches and swollen gums, but it will also make treatment less invasive and more affordable.

Even if you leave your family dentistry appointment with challenging news, you don’t have to worry. Our dental team  will do everything they can to prevent your condition from worsening and to repair any damage already done.
