How Affordable Is Pediatric Dentistry?

April 27, 2022 1:33 am

You’ve certainly heard the famous saying before: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” While at first it may seem like dentistry services, including pediatric care or general oral healthcare, can be costly, keeping up with your child’s preventive care early and regularly can save you money, time, and stress down the road. Preventive services will protect your child from more serious dental issues.

The Value of Routine Preventive Care

For example, you can pay to bring your child in for their routine dental cleanings and exams, which will help them avoid issues like bad breath, cavities, and gum disease. Skip out on these preventive visits, however, and you may find that you’re having to shell out more money for a filling, dental crown, root canal, or tooth extraction because there was an oral health problem that could have been prevented or detected earlier with routine care.

Your Financial Options

Based on their unique financial situation, each family will have a different idea of what they consider to be affordable for a specific service or product. But the kind of payment options a pediatric dental practice offers can make a big difference in how budget-friendly its services are to you. Before committing to treatment, check with the practice about their financial options.

At Brooks Pediatric Dentistry, we accept cash, most major debit and credit cards, PPO dental insurance, FSAs, HSAs, and Medicaid. We provide treatment estimates and work with you to decrease your out-of-pocket costs wherever possible.
