In our last blog article, we told you that August is National Family Fun month! We shared some ways that you can celebrate by making family dentistry fun at home.
In that article, we focused a lot on kids’ oral health. As a family dentist in Orlando, however, we see people of all ages, right here in our office! There’s no need to travel across town to make sure everyone in your family is taken care of. Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessica here at Overmeyer Family Dental have a lot of ways we can help your family enjoy going to the dentist.
Caring Team and Atmosphere
Have you ever been to a doctor and didn’t enjoy your appointment just because you felt uncomfortable? Was it the doctor’s or staff’s demeanor toward you, the clinical feel of the office, or the way you felt judged? Even aside from any painful procedures, these can make your time there very unenjoyable. And if you’ve taken your kids some place where they’ve experienced this too, you may not have gone back.
Here, we make dentistry enjoyable! We welcome you and treat you like family – it’s in our name, after all! After decades of experience with all ages, we know what it takes to make you like coming to our office. It’s important to trust someone who has experience with both kids and families, and we truly enjoy getting to know you and making you feel comfortable. In fact, we have three generations of some families who’ve been seeing us!
We’ll make your visit low stress by keeping you informed of what we’re doing along the way. And if you’re still afraid of coming (maybe it’s been a long time since you’ve gone to the dentist or had a bad experience in the past), we can make your visit even more enjoyable with sedation dentistry.
Dental Exams and Cleanings
If you’re an adult, we welcome you to bring your child to your dental exam. By doing this, your child will see that it’s fine to go to the dentist and that there’s nothing to be afraid of! They’ll also get used to the office and to us, and this will help them look forward to coming back because it’s all familiar territory. Ask them to look at how great your teeth look when you’re done, too! When they come for their own appointment, they may even get to “ride” in the dentist chair!
A bonus for you and your family members is that we take digital dental X-rays. These take just seconds and save a lot of time and discomfort common with old film X-rays.
Painless Short-Term Orthodontics
Does your teen need braces? What about you? Did you not get a chance to get braces when you were younger, or have your teeth changed since? We offer two ways to straighten your smile in a much more pleasant way than braces: Invisalign and Six Month Smiles!
Invisalign is great for busy adults and teens who don’t want people to notice that they’re getting orthodontic care. In less time than braces, Invisalign can straighten your teeth by using comfortable clear aligners that are almost completely invisible! Plus, you can remove them when you need to eat or brush your teeth.
Six Month Smiles is great for anyone who really just wants to focus on their front teeth that show when they smile. That’s how this treatment is so effective – in an average of six months, your smile will be beautiful! You can enjoy a new appearance and new smile that quickly!
Painless Gum Disease Treatment
Perhaps it’s been a long time since you’ve seen the dentist and now are facing gum disease treatment. Don’t fear – we can even treat your gum disease with our painless LANAP procedure! No scalpels or surgery needed, just laser technology and the skilled hands of our doctors!
This is another way we can make your oral health care fun! We can walk you through some surprising foods that can help keep your teeth and mouth healthy. If you read the last blog, you’ll remember we said that using this information is a fun way to go grocery shopping with your younger kids, letting them pick out tooth-friendly foods.
Last but not least, we help keep dentistry stress-free for the family with our easy, no-interest financing options and helping you file your insurance claims. We also have specials for the family, including a thorough initial exam for only $78 per new patient (regular $191)! Professional exams and cleanings are key to maintaining your oral health and saving you time, pain, and money in the long run!
