Family Dentistry

Professional dental care is not just for adults. The whole family can benefit from regular dental consultations. Family dentistry is designed to provide age-appropriate treatment for all members of the family, from the youngest ones to seniors. At Hatch Family Dentistry, our goal is that your whole family have a healthy radiant smile throughout their entire lifetime.

Why Do I Need a Family Dentist?

Having a family dentist gives you the following benefits:

  • Both you and your kids can get their dental visits taken care of together, all at the same time. It’s already a lot of work getting to the dentist in the first place, so why complicate matters by having different dentists for your kids, yourself, and your elderly parents.
  • Your dentist knows you and your family and is with you for the long-haul. We form long-term relationships with our patients and therefore are motivated to do everything possible to provide you with the high-quality long-lasting care you are looking for.
  • You always have a dentist to run to during emergencies. Think you’ll never have a dental emergency? Think again. Broken tooth? No problem! Call Hatch Family Dentistry. We are available on an emergency basis to provide immediate treatment for any unexpected dental mishaps. Maybe you don’t actually need to be seen immediately but just need to be able to actually reach your dentist by phone on the weekend for advice about how to handle your child’s tooth injury. A tooth injury can be extremely traumatic. When you or your child experiences dental trauma, it’s nice to know you have a relationship with a dentist that you can count on.
  • From youth to old age, you can always depend on your dentist. We provide care to all ages and all walks of life, and we are a stable and well-established dental practice, so we will be around for many more years to come. Hatch Family Dentistry opened in 1968, and has been providing top quality dental care for decades to families just like yours. Dr. Mason Konkle and Dr. Jennifer Konkle are the third generation of dentists in our practice, with Dr. Hyrum Hatch (Jennifer’s father) being the second generation and having over 28 years of experience.
  • You don’t need a different dentist all the time. It’s frustrating to bounce from dentist to dentist, never quite finding the right fit for the long term, and constantly changing dentists can lead to a poorly thought-out patchwork of short-term fixes in your mouth rather than the definitive dental care most people are looking for. As a private practice of well-established family dentists, we are both general dentists who provide a wide range of services, but we also gear our services to caring for people of all ages and with an emphasis on trying to take care of your needs under one roof. If you only visit an orthodontist, you will need a different dentist for issues regarding your gums or root canals. Family dentists, on the other hand, provide holistic dental care for a wide range of oral problems including orthodontic, periodontic, prosthodontic, endodontic, and cosmetic issues.

Dental Services Offered to Patients of All Ages

We at Hatch Family Dentistry love working with all patients, whether young or old! We understand the needs of everyone, especially those based on different stages of life and development. Younger patients need more preventative care, while older patients need proactive treatment and restorations. No matter your age, you can trust Hatch Family Dentistry to provide the following dental services:

Cosmetic Dentistry

Everyone deserves a beautiful smile, even young children. We provide smile adjustments and makeovers for all patients. For adults, teeth whitening and veneers are the most common cosmetic treatments. Children may also need cosmetic solutions depending on the defect needing to be corrected and what the dentists sees fit for their age.

Preventative Dentistry

Both children and adults need regular dental cleaning to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. For kids, sealants are the best form of preventative treatment. These plastic prosthetics protect the teeth from tooth decay and keep milk teeth healthy until their permanent counterparts erupt.


Some people may think that orthodontic treatment only works on kids. However, adults can also benefit greatly from dental alignment. If you are hesitant to wear metal braces, try Invisalign clear aligners for an invisible yet highly efficient orthodontic solution.


Root canal treatment is a common procedure which is done on adults with deeply decayed teeth. When children need root canal therapy, it’s called a pulpotomy. Both endodontic procedures aim to remove the infected pulp to save the rest of the tooth.

Restorative Dentistry

Anyone can get damaged or broken teeth. Dental bonding and crowns are the most common restorative solutions for patients who have dental damage. Children who have broken or fractured teeth may get bonding to restore the integrity of the remaining healthy tooth material.

Dentures, bridges, and dental implants are restorations for missing teeth which are usually given to adults and seniors. For young patients, temporary restorations for missing teeth may be given until their permanent teeth set in.

Sedation Dentistry

For patients who have anxiety issues, especially children who are afraid of dentists, sedation dentistry offers a safe solution to keep patients relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Sedation also allows dentists to perform treatments more accurately and quickly, since patients will be able to cooperate fully without feeling pain or fear.

Emergency Dentistry

Hatch Family Dentistry has three highly skilled dentists who are always ready to serve you. We can accommodate emergency calls and provide treatment as soon as you come into our dental office. Just call us at (480) 838-3073 before you arrive so that we can prepare the necessary tools and equipment to efficiently perform the needed treatment.
