Yes, we accept most major insurance plans for children’s dental care. Please contact our office to confirm if your insurance plan is accepted.
If your child experiences a dental emergency, such as a knocked-out tooth or severe pain, please call our office immediately. We will do our best to see your child as soon as possible.
You can help prevent cavities in your child’s teeth by encouraging good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and limiting sugary snacks and drinks. Your dentist may also recommend dental sealants or fluoride treatments for added protection.
Children can start using toothpaste with fluoride once they are able to spit it out, typically around the age of two. Before that, you can use a small amount of toothpaste without fluoride or simply brush with water.
You can teach your child to brush and floss properly by demonstrating the technique yourself and supervising them until they are able to do it on their own. You can also make it fun by using kid-friendly toothbrushes and incorporating music or games into the routine.
