Have you ever heard the expression "when it rains, it pours"? That old adage happens in life more often than we like, and it can occur in every type of situation, including your dental needs. Perhaps your child has a cavity at the same time you need a new crown, or maybe your elderly parent needs dental implants while your son needs braces.

Typically, all of these appointments would require a lot of driving around town to see different types of dental specialists. However, a multi-specialty dental practice lets you and all of your family members receive dental care at one convenient location.

A multi-specialty dental practice consists of a team of dental specialists, all practicing under one roof. In addition to convenience, there are several benefits to using a multi-specialty dental clinic.

A team of specialists equals outstanding dental care.

A Team Approach
Sometimes a dental check-up and cleaning are all you need, but sometimes additional dental work is required. At a multi-specialty dental practice, your dentist can refer you to a specialist, in-house. This means you won't have to transfer your records, or travel to a new dentist's office. These specialists are used to working together in a team setting, and can easily share patients' records and history. This team approach is less stressful for patients, and ensures that they won't have to repeat diagnostic tests or paperwork whenever a new specialist is required.

Combined Talent
Often, specialists need to consult with each other on difficult cases. For example, a tooth extraction may be necessary before getting braces, or sometimes oral surgery is required prior to other dental work. The convenience of a multi-specialty dental office allows specialists to work together on complicated cases. They share their knowledge and expertise with one common goal in mind: excellent patient care.

Services for Your Entire Family
If you have children, you may want to take them to a pediatric dentist. Usually, this requires you to juggle appointments between your dental needs and theirs. In a multi-specialty practice, you can arrange appointments so that your kids can see their dentist on the same day that you see yours, without additional travel time. You will also feel comfortable knowing that your primary dentist knows and endorses your child's pediatric dentist.

A multi-specialty dental practice gives patients access to the best dentists in one convenient location. It allows each dental expert to concentrate on his or her specialty, while working as a team for excellent patient outcomes. Having a group of dental specialists in one location is a convenient option for you and your loved ones. It saves you time, and delivers optimal dental care for the entire family.
