When should I bring my child in for their first dental visit?
Our doctors recommend that a child should have their first dental visit within 6 months of their first tooth erupting, but no later than their first birthday. After that, they should come in for regular checkups at least twice a year.
Can you fix my child’s damaged/decayed tooth?
Yes, we can, and we actually have a variety of restorative procedures that are geared towards fixing these exact kinds of problems. For a slightly damaged tooth, we may use a tooth-colored filling, but for something more serious, a dental crown might be more appropriate.
How often should I have my child’s teeth professionally cleaned?
In order to get the best results and prevent dental issues from popping up, a child should get a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year.
My child is very nervous about visiting the dentist. Can you help?
Our patients’ comfort is very important to us, so if a child needs a little extra help to feel relaxed, we can use something called sedation dentistry. With these techniques, we can treat any kind of child (including those with special needs) with relative ease by calming their mind and protecting them from pain.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
We gladly accept all dental insurance plans and are an in-network provider with Dental Dental Premier. If your dental insurance company is out-of-network with our office, coverage is still provided but will vary depending on treatment needed in relation to your specific insurance plan. We do not participate with Medicaid, Medicare or any other government funded plans. Feel free to ask our front office team anytime you have questions regarding your dental insurance coverage.
