How to Choose the Right Family Dentist

December 16, 2013

Whether you've recently moved to a new area or are unhappy with your current family dentist, there are many reasons why you might be looking for a new family dentist. Routine dental care is important for each member of your family. Good oral health has a big impact on overall health that’s why a qualified dentist should attend to dental needs. A family dentist generally has the expertise and knowledge to provide care to people with different needs across all age groups. Here are some things to look for when choosing a new family dentist:


One of the most important qualifications that you need to look for in a family dentist is his level of training and education. While dentists are required to attend dental school and pass a licensure exam, there are several training programs and continuing learning education classes for specific dental techniques. These also help a family dentist stay up to date on latest advancements and practices in the dental industry. Ask if he is a member of any professional dental organizations like the American Dental Association.

Why Choose Dr. Reese? Dr. Ted Reese is an active member of the following professional dental organizations continuing his education by training on more specialties: Academy of General Dentistry since 1985, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, Christian Medical Dental Association, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, American Dental Association, Indianapolis District Dental Society, Midwest Implant Institute and American Association of Functional Orthodontics.


Ask you family dentist how long he has been practicing and what kind of procedure he has most often performed in his clinic.

Why Choose Dr. Reese? Dr. Reese has over 25 years of experience giving professional dental care from dental implants, crown fillings, tooth extractions, braces to oral surgeries using various sedation techniques. He is also an emergency dentist, offering emergency procedures in his own clinic.

Services Offered

Choose a family dentist that can cater to your family’s dental needs. For example, if you have children ask a potential family dentist on your list if he has attended to children’s dental needs before and what are additional methods he employs to keep children calm during dental procedures. Teenagers would usually need help correcting bites or adjusting teeth with the help of braces while adults might need help with dentures or wisdom tooth extractions.

Why Choose Dr. Reese? Dr. Reese holds clinic at the Indianapolis Center for Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry that offers a full-range of dental services like hygiene treatments, cosmetic surgery, orthodontics, dental implants, dentures, bridges, and oral surgery with options for IV or pill sedation. Dr. Ted Reese conveniently does all of this in one dental office, saving you time, pain, and inconvenience.

Clinic Atmosphere

A family dentist’s dental office can provide you a clue whether you will be at home and comfortable with your new dental home. Get to know the staff and learn more about the equipment they have in their clinic. It is important that your whole family feels comfortable in the clinic. If you have young children, look for a staff that works well with children and is willing to explain dental health in simple terms.

Why Choose Dr. Reese? Indianapolis Dentistry has taken painstaking measures to insure both comfort and relaxation to their patients. Practicing holistic treatments and procedures to help calm a patient’s fears, their clinic is more like a dental spa. Dr. Reese and his staff are committed to provide the most comfortable, pain-free, and quality care they believe is possible to all of their patients.
