Q: Do you offer orthodontics in your office?

Yes! Family Dental of Spokane Valley offers several different orthodontics options for straightening your family’s teeth. We straighten teeth with both Invisalign and ClearCorrect, two systems that use clear plastic aligner trays instead of braces. Since they are practically invisible in your mouth, they are especially popular with adults. We also use Six Month Smiles, a system similar to traditional braces but with clear brackets and tooth-colored wires.

And we offer orthodontics exams even for your youngest family members. We find that conducting a first screening by age 7 makes it easier to identify any orthodontics issues that may need attention. Early detection leads to better outcomes.

Q: What kind of sedation do you offer for dental procedures?

Spokane Valley, WA dentist Dr. Craig Ellsworth and members of our Family Dental of Spokane Valley team are trained in a method called conscious sedation. Many people find that conscious dental sedation eases their dental anxiety better than more traditional methods of sedation.

With conscious dental sedation, most patients will remain relaxed and able to respond during their dental procedures. And after the procedure is over, patients typically feel like their usual selves more quickly than they do after undergoing other sedation methods.

Q: Do you offer extended hours?

Yes! Because we know you and your family are busy, we offer early morning appointments on most weekdays. So you can schedule your family’s appointments as early as 7 a.m. You can have your teeth examined and cleaned before work or school!
