What is a Family Dentist?

Family dentists are quite similar to general dentists, except the former offers services to patients of all ages. Instead of just treating adults, these individuals provide care to children and teens as well. Dr. Costello and Dr. DeHart bring years of experience, training, and knowledge to the office each day. Their ability to develop young smiles gives them the opportunity to watch patients grow and maintain optimal oral health through each stage of life.
