What really sets my office apart as a family practice, probably my experience with my own family. I've got five kids, I love them. And I really do enjoy being with my kids. As I bring that mentality into treating families, I focus on what I would do with my own family. I see a lot of patients come in with their kids, their children, their families, and they learn to trust me with their care.
I take the time to let the kid have a good experience. I want them to understand that this is a place where they can come talk to their dentist and learn, and feel good about their oral healthcare. I want the kids to understand, hey this is good. I want to go see Dr. Murdock. This is a great opportunity.
As they progress through adolescence, get through adulthood, I want them to know that the more extensive needs of family healthcare can be met in this dental office. Eighteen to a hundred and eighteen, it doesn't matter how old you are. We focus on family care that allows you the best oral health. Everything from cleanings, to restorative, to getting your mouth aligned in Invisalign or braces, getting back to where you want to be for your full function and family health.
I see mothers come in who bring their children, and they may have an anxious child or something and they'll drop them in, and I take time to visit with the parents and say, “This is what we'll be doing today. Let me introduce you to how we teach your child.” And then we want that interaction with the parents. We want them to know how their kids are doing, and the successes we're seeing at home, and things they could learn to improve their oral health so that it's a good family experience all the way around.
By coming to our office, you can:
- Have one location for your family’s dental needs
- Ease children’s anxiety by bringing them to your appointments
- Save the cost of going to a specialist for many treatments, including wisdom teeth removal
Your family’s oral care needs will change as kids and adults get older. At Accura Dental, we want to grow with you. Call 719-249-2854 today to schedule your next appointment with us. Be sure to ask us about our Accura Premier Plan to save your family money on their dental care.
Keep Your Family’s Smiles Clean & Healthy
Did you know that more than half of all kids will have a cavity by their 11th birthday? Did you know that 1 in 4 adults has an untreated cavity right now?
Many oral health problems begin with tooth decay and gum disease, which is why we focus on preventive care and on building solid relationships starting with your child’s first visit with us. As a family practice, we provide a range of services:
- General Dentistry – Along with dental cleanings and exams, we offer sealants, fluoride treatments, custom-made athletic mouthguards, and more!
- Restorative Dentistry – Teeth break, crack, chip, decay, and fall out. Our restorative care, including fillings and crowns, can repair your family’s smiles.
- Cosmetic Dentistry – You can improve your smile or undo the effects of wear and tear on your teeth with cosmetic services.
While we hope you never need it, we do offer emergency dental care to help address accidents and injuries that could affect someone you love. Thanks to our early hours, we can often offer you a same-day appointment for emergencies. There’s no need to feel nervous about any treatment because you have the option of receiving dental sedation. You can choose oral conscious sedation or laughing gas, which is safe for all ages.
Make Fewer Trips to Our Office With Our Early Hours
You can make oral care more convenient by scheduling appointments for every member of your family on the same day. We’ll set you up to be seen back-to-back so you make fewer trips to the office. We’re open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and by appointment on Thursday and Saturday, so you can find an appointment time that works with your schedule.
We welcome children 3 years and up. Dr. Chad Murdock spent three years providing hospital dentistry, where he gained experience treating patients of all ages and situations.
Family dentistry doesn’t need to be complicated. At Accura Dental, we look forward to caring for your family today and for many tomorrows to come. Call 719-249-2854 or make an appointment online to visit Dr. Murdock, your trusted Colorado Springs family dentist.
