Dr. Joe Bell Talks About Family Dentistry at Bell & Bell Dentistry
Dr. Joe Bell:
If there is a family, we would like to have the whole family as patients. Number one, it’s just easier to have, not having people going to all different providers and things. There are occasions to where a child, if they’re very, very young, and they need a lot of extended services, that we would refer to a pediatric dentist, but in general if it’s cleanings, and basic fillings, and referrals, et cetera, that’s something that we handle there.
But we like having families because we think our patients are family, and so it would only make sense that if a family comes, that we’re going to want that family to be part of the family that we have. It’s easier for them, in terms of transportation, and it’s better for us, because we can meet them all. You get to know people better that way, especially if we’ve seen one of the parents, and they say, ‘Well this is my 6-year-old daughter that I was telling you about, and there’s my 14-year-old son that we were talking about.’ So we get to know people better that way.
