Family Dentistry

A family dentistry practice is designed to serve patients of all ages, from small children to senior citizens.  Similar to general dentistry, family dentistry is primarily preventive in scope and focuses on maintaining the patient’s oral hygiene and tooth health.

Patients of all ages require slightly different dental care.  For example, the primary concern with young children is to help them develop strong oral hygiene habits and to protect their young teeth with fluoride treatments and sealants.  For senior patients, however, reconstructive and tooth replacement options such as dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants may be of primary importance.  Adult patients may need more restorative dental procedures, such as dental crowns, to repair damaged teeth.  A family dentist is trained in the areas of general, preventive, and restorative dentistry, but may also have pursued additional training in cosmetic dentistry.

Because family dentistry practices are designed to provide general, convenient care to family members of all ages, patients may need to seek specialized care for some issues.  For example, if a family doctor finds signs of gum disease, he or she may refer that patient to a periodontist.  Likewise, if a teenage patient wishes to straighten his or her teeth, he or she will be referred to an orthodontist.

A strong oral hygiene routine is essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums for patients of all ages.  Accredited dental associations recommend that patients over the age of three visit a general or family dentist every six months for a thorough examination and professional cleaning.

Fabulous Dentist. Dr. Sidhu has been working on my teeth for the past year, fixing, adding veneers and implants and now I can smile again. Great staff also.

I have horrible teeth and have been around the block and back with dentists, trying many offices around Los Angeles and San Diego. Dentists come a dime a dozen but I try to avoid doing the trial and error thing with my teeth!

Dr. Jessy was highly recommended by a friend of mine so I went to see him for a consultation. First impressions are everything for me - beginning with how my first phone call is handled, stepping into the office for the first time, the front office staff, etc. Everyone I encountered was professional and courteous. When I had my consult with Dr. Jessy he was personable and professional but most importantly, I could tell he was experienced and knowledgeable.

Over the past two weeks I had 11 teeth worked on and I was really surprised by how gentle the process was. I'm accustomed to experiencing significant pain at the dentist and this was not the case at all. I definitely have confidence in Dr. Jessy and his office and highly recommend them!
