FAQ

Q. How often should my child see a dentist?

A. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) and the American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines recommend  your child visit a dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and professional cleaning. Our office also recommends a minimum of two visits per year.

Q. What do I do if my child has a dental emergency?

A. Please call our office as soon as you determine that your child needs emergency dental care. We will be glad to work your child in to the schedule if your child requires urgent dental care during regular business hours. If you or your child is an established patient of record, after hours or over the holidays, please call our office for the doctors’ emergency contact numbers.

Q. What are your sterilization procedures?

A. Your child's health is important to us, and our practice follows the most advanced guidelines for instrument sterilization and infection control from the CDC and the ADA. We utilize state-of-the-art sterilization equipment that destroys all contaminants including Covid-19. Each instrument is cleaned and sterilized after each use. Disposable instruments and instruments that cannot be sterilized are discarded after one use. Our staff disinfects all surfaces and changes gloves and masks between patient visits.
