Family Dentistry on Capitol Hill

family-dentistry-by-nishan-halim-dmdFamily dental care is just that … comprehensive dentistry for the whole family, including young children, teens, and seniors. General and cosmetic dentists like Nishan Halim enjoy building long term relationships with their patients. Getting to know an entire family and their oral hygiene routines can help in the delivery of quality dental care for each individual. We look at the whole person, not just the teeth.

Family dental care is geared toward prevention. We start with a thorough dental exam and consultation that allows for early diagnosis of problems and appropriate treatment plans. Daily oral care – brushing and flossing – is emphasized. Regular check-ups with cleanings are recommended to eliminate or minimize the need for further and more extensive treatment.

Convenience is a goal of family dentistry. Several family members often schedule appointments simultaneously, or back to back, to cut down on trips and make those twice-annual visits a family affair.

The widespread use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness of dental health practices has significantly reduced the incidence of tooth decay. However, teeth are still vulnerable to decay, infection and breakage, which require some form of restoration. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.

…. Dr. Halim and his staff are very professional and makes my experience well worth the drive from North Carolina. I will not let another dentist work on me.
