More About Family Dentistry

A family dentist is dependable and convenient. You can make a single appointment for you and your children to visit their office, instead of separate appointments at different dental offices. Dr. Pappas can refer you to a specialist if need be, but he can deal with a variety of issues and provide several services like tooth extraction and laser dentistry.

A family dentist is trained to care for your smile throughout your life and can adjust as you grow older. They also have a unique insight into your family history so they can be proactive about your dental health.
