Family Dentistry Q & A

Why do people choose family dentistry?

Family dentistry is appealing to people for numerous reasons. Perhaps the most important is the efficiency that comes with having a trusted dentist provide care for your entire family. That means fewer trips to the dentist, and more time spent doing the things that matter most.

Another advantage of family dentistry is the peace of mind that comes from understanding the dentistry approach that your dentist uses to shape his or her practice.

For example, if having a dental professional take the time to address all of your concerns and thoroughly explain treatment options is essential to you, then having your chosen dentist provide that same level of care to your loved ones is comforting.

What dental services can a family dentist provide?

Dentists who practice family dentistry receive the same training as dentists who choose a different practice approach. Your family dentist can provide the following services:

  • Thorough dental exams - We use Dexis digital x-rays that have reduced radiation compared to conventional x-rays
  • Professional cleaning
  • Filling cavities
  • Gum care
  • Bridges, crowns, and dentures
  • Alignment services, including Invisalign

This is far from a comprehensive list. In short, as a family dentist, Dr. Lee can provide the full scope of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services.

What if I require specialized care?

Dr. Lee is highly skilled in all aspects of general dentistry and has the expertise to address a wide range of dental issues. Most common dental problems can be treated in-house, often during the same visit, although some procedures require multiple appointments.

If you or a member of your family requires more advanced care, such as in the case of advanced gum disease or complex oral surgery, Dr. Lee can refer you to a specialist. Because she remains active in continuing education and professional organizations, she has developed a network of trusted colleagues and can guide you toward an excellent specialist.

If you need tertiary dental care outside of the Foothill office, Dr. Lee coordinates with the provider to ensure that you receive consistent care before and after any specialized care. That can make a big difference when it comes to monitoring for proper healing and function.
