Regular Dental Care is Important

Healthy teeth are a part of good overall health. Tooth decay can start early, so it is important for children to begin seeing a dentist by age one. Regular check-ups catch tooth decay early or prevent it in the first place. Children can learn early on that going to the dentist is safe and fun.

Tips for Choosing a Dentist

Look for a dentist that:

  • Accepts your method of payment.
  • Offers a plan for dental care after hours.
  • Is located close to you.
  • Has office hours that work for you.
  • Is comfortable with children.

Tips for Parents at the Dental Office

  • Make sure you are on time for the appointment.
  • If you cannot make it, call to cancel the day before.
  • Bring your child’s insurance card.
  • Before the visit, write down concerns or questions you want to ask.
  • Call the I-Smile™ Coordinator if you need help!
