If you are searching for a new dentist in the Temecula or Riverside area, you’ve likely run across the term ”family dentistry”.  Question: what does family dentistry mean?  Is it just a blanket phrase or does it differentiate a practice from others?  As a family and cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Parul Mehta & Associates would like to explain.

On Family Dentistry

A common perception is that a general dentist is basically a family dentist.  However, all general dentists are not trained to handle dentistry for children.  While family dentist does not have as much specialized training as pediatric dentists, they have received child dental instruction.  Family dentist understands how to help patients at every stage of their life.  Hence, our training enables us to provide insightful dental care regardless of the patient’s age.

As a family dentist, Dr. Parul Mehta & Associates offers a great variety of dental services to patients of various ages.  For instance, we are trained and equipped to handle:


Offering a wide variety of dental services enables our patients to be able to have dental care from a trusted dentist from childhood to adulthood.  We are able to see and understand changes that occur in our patient’s oral health for decades.  This gives us valuable insights into determining the best methods of treatment.

We have two conveniently located offices in Riverside and Temecula.  Each features state-of-the-art dental technologies and staff that enjoys working with patients of all ages.  As family dentists, we work as a family and treat our patients as such.  If you are looking for a dental practice that is well-trained, kind, and respected throughout Temecula and Riverside, look no further!
