If your family is like most these days, your lives can be summed up in one word: busy. Between school, parents’ work, sports, and other extracurricular activities, it can be tough to fit in the other stuff like doctor’s appointments and dental checkups.
There are pediatric dentists and dentists who specialize in adult care. But the truth is, there is absolutely no need to complicate your schedule by running around town taking each family member to a different dentist. Instead, you can visit a dentist for the whole family
At 1st in Smiles, we are a family dentist — meaning we have the training, skills, and experience to treat every member of your family, from infants to grandparents. We know all the tricks for keeping squirmy toddlers entertained while we examine their teeth; can straighten out your teenager’s smile with Invisalign; and provide all of the restorative procedures that an older patient may need.

Experience the Advantages of a Family Dentist
A family dentist is basically one-stop shopping for your entire family’s oral health. We provide a wide range of services and are highly skilled at all of them. This means less time wasted running around town for you. We may even be able to fit all of you in during one visit, meaning you don’t have to keep coming back for multiple appointments. Here are some of the services we offer.
Cleanings and Exams
Routine cleanings and exams are at the heart of our practice. Preventive dentistry is key to keeping the entire family’s smiles healthy, and it is a huge emphasis for a dentist for the whole family. We will clean your and your family’s teeth of stuck-on tartar, give them a meticulous flossing, and polish those pearly whites until they gleam. Our dentist will examine the teeth thoroughly, checking for early signs of gum disease and tooth decay. We recommend you bring baby in within six months of the first tooth erupting or before the first birthday. At 1st in Smiles, your child’s first visit is FREE.
Orthodontic treatment is practically a right of passage for teenagers, but we offer orthodontic options for all ages. Invisalign clear plastic aligners are invisible on the teeth and a particular favorite orthodontic product for adults.
As a dentist for the whole family we offer a wide range of procedures for fixing broken, chipped, and decayed teeth. Fillings are by far the most common, but we can also fit you with custom-crafted crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
Cosmetic dentistry includes procedures that are designed to make your teeth look fantastic. We offer procedures for a range of price points, from the relatively inexpensive teeth whitening to dental veneers, which have the potential to utterly transform your smile. We can also combine cosmetic dentistry techniques into a custom smile makeover.
Gum Disease Treatment
Without healthy gums, your teeth have nothing to hold them in place. A gum examination is standard for each checkup and if we notice signs of disease, we will recommend and implement treatment to bring them back to health.
At 1st in Smiles, we are committed to keeping your entire family’s teeth and gums healthy. To schedule an appointment at a dentist for the whole family, you may call us at 972-905-9266.
