When searching for a dentist, we know that you have many options; however, we also know that everyone has a unique dental situation, especially when it comes to people of different age groups living under one roof. Accordingly, turning to a family dentist such as our very own Dr. Chad Olson and Dr. Neda Falak in Prior Lake, MN, can often be the best approach to ensure that every member of your family gets the dental care they deserve.
Here are the benefits of turning to a family dentist:
Look Out for Inherited Issues
Did you know that everything from gum disease and decay has a genetic component? This means that if an adult has periodontal disease or problems with cavities, their children are also at an increased risk for developing these same issues. When you turn to our Prior Lake, MN, dentist, however, we not only monitor the development of your child’s smile to pinpoint some of these issues early on, but we also provide preventive actions so as reduce any risks to their dental health.
Keep Track of Your Child’s Development
Your child’s smile goes through a variety of changes as they get older, so it’s important to have a family dentist who can see your child through all these stages to make sure they are reaching certain milestones. That way, if there are developmental issues, our dentist will be able to detect them during one of your child’s biannual checkups. After all, even your child’s baby teeth play a crucial role in speech development and your little one’s ability to chew. With regular checkups, we can make sure that your child stays on a healthy track
Have a Dentist You Can Turn to in an Emergency
When you have a trusted dentist that you always turn to for care, it’s easy to know exactly where to go when a dental emergency arises. Since children (especially young athletes) are particularly prone to dealing with dental injuries that require immediate care, it’s comforting to know that you have a dentist from whom you can get comprehensive and prompt care.

Turning to a family dentist means that you can get dentistry for the whole family in one place, which means less traveling and fewer trips to the dentist. Now the entire family can get their routine checkups without having to see multiple dentists! In fact, we can even schedule cleanings for your family on the same day to make getting checkups easier.
