From our business hours to insurance issues, these questions and answers can help you learn what to expect from Tongue & Tooth.

What insurance providers do you work with?


Our team can work with a variety of different insurance companies. You can talk to our billing department about your specific provider. In addition, we have payment plans and other options available.

How is pediatric dentistry different?


Pediatric dentistry is different because it focuses on children’s teeth. Children have developing jaw and teeth, which can impact the type of care they need. Unlike an adult dentist, a pediatric dentist focuses entirely on the child’s needs.

How often should a child see a dentist?


In general, children should see their dentist at least every six months. Sometimes, the child may need to have dental appointments more often instead. Our team will help to determine the best care plan for your child based on their unique dental needs.

What is the age range for pediatric dentists?


Children can continue to see a pediatric dentist for their entire childhood. We typically see children from birth to age 16.

How do I prepare my child for the dentist?


The best thing you can do to prepare your child for the dentist is to get them used to brushing their teeth each day. You can talk to them about what to expect during the dental exam so that they are prepared. Once your child arrives at the dentist, our team knows how to put them at ease.
