What is a pediatric dentist?

A good analogy is a Pediatrician. A Pediatric Dentist is not only a “General Dentist,” but also a Dentist who specializes in children.

Do you also care for adult patients?

No. We only care for children between the ages of newborn to 16.

Do you accept dental insurance?

We do not participate with any insurance companies. However, we do accept assignment of benefits which means that we will file your insurance information and they will send us payment directly. Your are still responsible for any amount your insurance does not cover. We are willing to work with any insurance company and although most are willing to work with us, occasionally some refuse.

What types of payment are accepted?

We accept Cash, Check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and Care Credit.

(Care Credit is a health care specific credit card that allows families to spread out payments for more extensive treatment needs.)

At what age should my child start seeing a dentist?

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend that the first dental appointment be 6 months after a child’s first tooth erupts or by 1 year old, whichever comes first.

What if I have a dental emergency?

If your child is an established patient and has a dental emergency after hours, you may reach him at home. His phone number can be found in the local directory.
