What are the qualities of a good family dentist? 

If it’s been a while since your family last changed dentists, you might feel a little overwhelmed at the prospect of choosing a new treatment team. 

Determining whether a dentist is the right choice for you is a highly personal choice. Only you can know if someone is a good fit, but there are a few qualities you can look for if you want to choose an exceptional dental provider. 

When you’re considering making the switch, consider asking yourself the following questions:

How do I feel about this dental office culture? Do our personalities seem to mesh well with the dentist(s) and their dental staff?

Does this dental office offer extra amenities, such as televisions, headphones, or blankets to make my visit more comfortable? 

Is this dentist good with children? Do the treatment staff seem to enjoy working with pediatric patients? 

Does offering gentle dentistry in White Bear Lake seem to be a priority to this dental office? Do I feel comfortable about the care I would receive?

How is the dentist’s communication? Will they explain procedures and treatment options thoroughly? 

Does this dental office offer modern dental technology that will make my treatment more comfortable and more convenient?

As a provider of family dentistry in White Bear Lake, we understand that there’s a lot to consider when choosing your family’s next dentist! If you ever have questions about our procedures or the quality of service you would receive from our caring dentists, we invite you to contact us for more information. 

Do I need to take my children to a separate pediatric dentist? 

Not at all! At White Bear Smiles, we’ve been treating children for years. When we say we’re a family dentist, we genuinely mean we can provide excellent treatment to each member of your family.

Your children are always welcome here. We can begin our children’s dentistry treatment when your children reach their toddler years and have the majority of their baby teeth. 

When we treat children, our goal is to start slow and first get them acquainted with the dental office and being in the exam chair. Then, once they feel more at ease with their surroundings, we can provide essential pediatric dentistry services such as:

  • Fluoride rinses
  • Dental exams
  • Teeth cleanings
  • Sealants for molars

We encourage all parents to bring their children in starting at a young age so we can help them develop excellent dental hygiene habits early on. 

One of the most significant advantages of bringing your son or daughter to our dental practice is that we can grow with them and provide treatment into their adult life. You won’t have to find a new dentist for your child once they’re no longer considered a “pediatric” patient, and they can stay with us for many years to come. 

When your child is ready for their next dental check-up, please call us at White Bear Smiles! 

Can you see my entire family at once? 

Typically, yes. As your family dentist in White Bear Lake, we want to make it easy for your whole family to get the care they need under one convenient roof in as few trips as possible. We know it’s easier when your entire family can knock their dental appointments out in one day, so we do everything we can to make scheduling your treatment easy and beneficial for you. 

Our dental practice is open Monday through Friday, beginning at 7:30 each morning. If multiple family members want to schedule their teeth cleanings for the same day, please contact our front desk by calling (651) 426-8998. We will always do our best to schedule overlapping dental appointments for family members. 

Which general dentistry services are available at your dental practice?

At White Bear Smiles, we offer a wide range of general dentistry treatments to protect your family’s smiles. 

When you visit us, we can address any dental needs or concerns you have and provide you with treatment, including:

  • Dental exams and teeth cleanings
  • Digital dental x-rays 
  • Same-day CEREC crowns for teeth
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Zoom! professional teeth whitening 
  • Children’s dentistry
  • Geriatric dentistry
  • Emergency dental treatment 

We recognize that keeping your family’s smiles shiny and clean sometimes takes more than a twice-a-year dental exam. We’re pleased to offer comprehensive general dentistry treatment than can address restorative and cosmetic concerns as well.
