Answers to common FAQs

Below, you’ll find a list of our most frequently asked questions.

When should my child get braces?
The ideal age for braces is between 8 and 14. This is when the head and the mouth are most conducive to straightening. As your child’s pediatric dentist, we’ll work with you and your child to determine the solutions and recommendations that will work best for them.
My child is scared of the dentist. Can you help?
We understand that dental fear is very real, and we’re here to help! We do our best to create a calming environment so your child feels relaxed in our office. Our team is engaging and friendly, we always have positive attitudes, and we offer fun amenities and sedation services to ensure we can meet everyone’s needs.
Does your office work with Medicaid and CHP+?
