Reasons to Choose a Family Dentist
Convenience is one of the greatest benefits of choosing a family dentist
Choosing a family dentist means that every member of your family can be treated under the same roof. As a family dentist, Lake Forest Smiles can schedule appointments for all of your family members on the same day so that you can avoid repeat trips to the office.
Elite dental care for every member of your family means prevention against oral diseases
If you noticed a plumbing leak when it was a small drip, it would be silly to wait until it flooded your basement to call a plumber. The same credo encompasses our philosophy to protect the oral health of every member of your family. Early detection and treatment minimize the amount of potential damage for any issue that develops, saving you time and money because it will not entail a more intensive procedure to resolve the problem.
We are here to protect you
Tooth decay and gum disease are two of the most widespread chronic ailments affecting people in America today. Yet, cavities are preventable with proper oral care and regular dental cleanings. We have a comprehensive program of preventive care, often using state-of-the-art technology for diagnostic treatments and tests.
Looking out for your overall health and wellness
Our family dentists in Lake Forest believe that proper dental care goes far beyond cleaning teeth and filling cavities:
- Bite alignment – Traditionally, orthodontic treatment does not begin until adolescence. However, we begin tracking and guiding bite alignment of beginning at an early age. Early intervention may prevent the need for braces later on in life, and ensures your child’s jaw growth reaches its potential. Using sophisticated technology, paired with expert training in neuromuscular dentistry, Drs. Campbell and Schmidt can identify orofacial myofunctional disorders that may indicate whether your child could benefit from myofunctional therapy.
- Airway management – Breathing is crucial to life, and unless you have asthma or another condition that makes breathing difficult, you probably never think about it. An issue with your airway can impact the way you breathe. Frequently breathing through the mouth, for example, can elevate your risk for a sleep breathing disorder like obstructive sleep apnea or even alter the structure of your face. Our dentists are trained in airway management and provide treatment by a variety of means, ranging from myofunctional therapy to the use of oral appliance therapy.
Finances never should dictate your level of care
We understand that many households are worried about being able to pay for dental care. At Lake Forest Smiles, we will work with you. If you have dental insurance, members of our staff will be happy to file claims on your behalf with your insurance provider. Meanwhile, we also accept payment in the forms of cash, check, and major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also offer in-house financing and special third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub. Either option pays for the entire cost of a procedure and is repaid to the financial institution through monthly payments—often at little or no interest.
