You've just moved your 2.5 kids, suburban assault vehicle, and full set of lawn furniture to a new house in a new town. Of course your first concern, after your riding mower gets unloaded, is to find a dentist for your family.
If you are asking how to find a good dentist for your family, you might be asking the wrong question. These days, different dentists have different specialties and age groups that they might see most often. A small child would be better off seen by a pediatric dentist, and your soon-to-be-live-in mother-in-law would be better off with a geriatric dentist.
So instead of committing to one dentist for your entire family's variety of needs, consider finding a couple of dentists that are better suited for each member.
This is just the information I was looking for about dentists! My family did just move across the state and I have been trying to find all the health care places that I will need to be taking myself and my family to for years to come. I really like the tips about finding different dentists for different aged family member, I had never thought of that! Before I make any decisions, I will ask some friends and family and co-workers if they have ever tired this method of dental care for their family.
