When should kids begin visiting the dentist?
Most children should ideally begin visiting the dentist regularly from around the age of one or when their first tooth grows in, whichever happens first. If your child has already passed these milestones—don’t worry! They are general guidelines for parents to follow, and we will be happy to see your child at your earliest convenience.
How often should I schedule pediatric dental visits?
We recommend that kids visit our office twice per year for a few reasons. Biannual dental cleanings and exams allow our team to assess your child’s smile regularly and clear away plaque before it causes tooth decay or gingivitis. It also helps kids get used to visiting the dentist, which can help reduce dental anxiety.
Can kids receive dental cleanings when they have braces?
Routine dental care is especially important when a patient is undergoing orthodontic treatment. If your child has metal or ceramic braces, our team can expertly clean around each bracket and ensure that cavities aren’t developing in areas that are difficult to brush. All of our patients are welcome and encouraged to schedule regular visits!
Are pediatric dental exams and cleanings covered by insurance?
If your child has dental insurance, biannual cleanings and dental exams are likely completely covered by their benefits. In addition to accepting many popular dental plans, our office also accepts Medicaid and CareCredit® financing to help patients fit routine pediatric dental care into their family’s budget.Contact Us
