Under Three Dental Visit
Under Three and your first visit is free! Children’s Dental Center and Big People, Too! has provided specialty dental care to children for over 40 years. The current recommendation from the AAPD, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry is that all children should visit the dentist by age one. Most dental practices are simply not equipped to handle such young patients. But we can.
Children’s Dental Center and big People, Too! has created a unique program for expecting mothers and parents of children of any age. Our program is entitled Early Childhood Caries, what every parent needs to know. This is a 20 minute presentation designed to educate all parents and patient about the causes of tooth decay, the consequences of tooth decay in the baby teeth, understanding good nutrition choices and what is the current state of the art in prevention today.
Unfortunately early childhood caries is increasing in California. Presently tooth decay in school age children is 5 times more common than asthma. This first visit is free because it is educational and the goal is to teach members of the community about prevention. The program is presented by one of our qualified and most experienced staff members and is not time with the dentist.
If you would like to see one of our staff dentists we can arrange that too, just call us and we will be happy to help you. Most insurance companies now have a billing code for the under three dental exams, so you may have coverage for this early dental visit.
