At what age should I bring my child in for their first dental exam and cleaning?

As soon a child’s first tooth appears, it is time to schedule a dental visit. The American Dental Association recommends that the first dental visit take place within 6 months after the first tooth appears, but no later than a child’s 1st birthday. However, if you have concerns prior to that, please contact us ASAP! We do everything possible to make it a fun visit for babies and toddlers, as well as for kids!

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

Our phones are personally answered Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. Also, the emergency number (accessed by calling ) will reach our Office Manager who will be happy to assist you.

Can you help me figure out what my dental insurance will cover?

Yes, our Treatment Coordinator is happy to assist you.
