Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is a branch of dentistry designed to accommodate your whole family, from infancy all the way through adulthood. At Johnson Ranch Family Dentistry and Orthodontics, Dr. Hoopes offers family dentistry services including, but not limited to:

  • General dentistry
  • Restorative treatment
  • Wisdom tooth extractions
  • Orthodontia 
  • Cosmetic treatments
  • Dental implants
  • Partial and full dentures
  • Root canals

If Dr. Hoopes encounters a dental issue that is outside of his scope of expertise, he connects you with one of the many specialists with whom he works closely to ensure your health.

To make sure you’re comfortable, whether you’re 3 or 93, the practice offers blankets, pillows, TV, and music options.

How are family dentists and general dentists different?

The main difference between a family dentist and a general dentist is who they see. Typically, general dentists don’t treat patients at every life stage. For example, they may work with adults, but must refer children to pediatric dentists. 

In contrast, family dentistry treats whole families, regardless of age. With family dentistry, instead of going to numerous dentists all over town, you can receive dental care for your whole clan all under one roof. 

In fact, you can sometimes book multiple appointments for multiple family members simultaneously.

When you bring your family in from the beginning, Dr. Hoopes has the opportunity to keep detailed records on their dental care and keep a close eye on oral changes as your kids or elderly family members grow older. 

What are the benefits of family dentistry?

Family dentistry offers countless benefits, including:


When the whole family goes to the same dentist, you can conveniently book multiple appointments at once for all your family members.


Family dentistry is a versatile type of dentistry that allows Dr. Hoopes to treat not just adults or just children, but both. Family dentists also have a vast scope of knowledge beyond the specialties of their peers.

Lasting, trusting doctor-patient relationships

If you see the same family dentist for many years, or bring your children to the same dentist, you’ll have an opportunity to get to know your dental team better. When you can get to know your team, you foster mutual trust. 

Trust is especially important for children, who can be very nervous when going to the dentist.
