For over 20 years, Dr. Lloyd Laughlin has provided family dental care to patients in the southeast Houston area. Everyone at Laughlin Dental Care considers family dentistry a cornerstone of our services. We work hard to ensure every member of your family feels relaxed, comfortable, and in good hands.
What Is Family Dentistry?
Family dentistry is like general dentistry, in that it focuses on your oral hygiene and oral health. Each member of your family has unique dental care needs, according to their age and oral health condition. This is particularly true for children, who move quickly through their dental stages. Dr. Laughlin’s team cares for your children from their first baby teeth to the arrival of wisdom teeth in young adulthood.
Some of the dental services available at Laughlin Dental for your family include:
- Teeth cleanings
- Fluoride treatments
- Identification of cavities
- Treatment of cavities and other dental problems
- Orthodontic care
- Lumineers and Invisalign
- Gum disease treatment
As a family dentist, Dr. Laughlin has specialized training, education, and experience in children’s dental care. He knows how to treat your children’s teeth while keeping your children relaxed and confident in the dental chair. The goal is to ensure your young ones develop a positive association with going to the dentist for a lifetime of healthy dental maintenance.
Specialized Needs for Family Dental Care
In Pasadena, Dr. Laughlin’s practice offers more than just family dentistry. His services also include general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. At Laughlin Dental, your entire family you can gain bright, youthful, and straight smiles.
For your family, this means that everyone develops a relationship with one dental team as they learn your family’s own dental history, health, and habits. It’s also more convenient for everyone to visit the same dental office. Many parents enjoy the ease of scheduling appointments for multiple family members on the same day. All of this makes a more positive dental experience.
As parents, you want your family’s teeth to be healthy. You want a good relationship with your dentist. Another “want” is for your dentist to have a high level of skill and qualifications. This type of dentist can respond easily to the diverse needs of all of the members of your family.
Your children want their dentist to be someone they look up to and trust, not someone who makes them nervous, anxious, or uncomfortable. Kids want to feel like the dental team cares about them and looks forward to seeing them in the office. A family dental team understands these needs. They also know how to talk to your children to keep communication about their teeth open and honest.
Together, everyone in your family needs a dental office that accepts your payment methods. If you have insurance, you certainly hope for its acceptance. But you also need more options, such as credit card acceptance and other dental financing options.
