Ongoing Care & Maintenance FAQ
Is preventive dentistry and routine care covered by insurance?
Exact insurance coverage depends on your plan, but preventive care such as oral exams and dental cleanings are commonly covered.
When should I schedule my infant’s first appointment?
We recommend that most children attend their first dental appointment around the time of their first birthday or when their first tooth comes in. Whichever comes first.
How often does a child need a dental exam and cleaning?
For most children, we recommend 2 dental exams every year, about 6 months apart. Of course, if your child needs extensive treatment, more frequent exams might be needed.
My child has special needs and has trouble at the dentist. Can you still perform preventive treatments?
Absolutely. In most cases, we are still able to perform basic dental exams for children with Special Needs. Our dentists have lots of experience working with children who have special needs, including Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, and dental anxiety.
