CAVITY CARE with
Appropriate dental care after your child’s first tooth eruption can cut your child’s cavity rate by up to 25% for the rest of their lives. Since only 1% of children see a dentist before the age of 3, we’ve instituted what we call “Cavity Care” at our Well Checks for children not receiving appropriate dental care, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists.
Cavity Care is recommended in the absence of dental care after your child’s first tooth eruption at each Well Check. Cavity Care involves a cavity risk factor assessment, a simple dental exam by a provider trained to identify cavities, and a fluoride varnish. It is not a substitute for dental care and all children should see a dentist by 3 years of age.
Cavity Care is covered by all insurances.
