We do not participate in any dental insurance plan because we feel the treatment required for your child should be not based on what an insurance provider will cover, but on what is needed. As a courtesy, we will be happy to give you the necessary completed insurance forms for you to submit to your insurance company for services provided by our office, or we can electronically submit them for you.
It is our policy to encourage parents to accompany their children if the parent so desires. We feel that children tend to be more reassured and comfortable in a new environment if the parent is present in the room with them, at least in the beginning.
Cancellation and Payment
We have reserved the appointment time exclusively for your child. If for any reason you are unable to make the appointment, we request that you give us at least 48 hour advance notice. There is a $75 broken appointment charge for any appointment that is confirmed and not kept.
Payment is required at the time of service.

Thyroid Fears Aside, That X-Ray’s Worth It
For dental checkups, find a dentist who uses digital X-rays, which deliver much less radiation. “We’ve said for years that the amount of radiation from dental X-rays is not enough to cause cancer,” Dr. Wartofsky said. And don’t let irrational fear get the better of you: It is simply not possible to detect all dental decay without X-rays, and missing hidden decay could result in the need for a root canal or extraction of the tooth.
