A bright smile for a brighter future

Taking care of your child’s dental needs can be quite a challenge! Brushing their teeth, flossing, and avoiding eating too much candy are all things they need to learn from a young age. Thankfully, you are not alone! At Acorn Pediatric Dental, Dr. Jason Tesoriero is here to help you and your child.

At Acorn Pediatric Dental, we put prevention and education at the core of our practice. When you bring your child for checkups every 6 months, we’ll be able to work together to help your child develop healthy dental habits from the start.

Professional dental cleanings and exams also allow us to detect dental issues that often go unnoticed until it’s too late, like cavities and gum disease. This way, we can stop them in their tracks and keep your child’s smile healthy and bright!

Our checkup appointments include:

  • $Complete dental cleaning

  • $Fluoride application
  • $Tips about oral hygiene, nutrition, and cavity prevention

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I take my child for dental cleanings?

Just like grownups, kids should visit their dentist at least every 6 months. Children are especially prone to developing cavities — an issue that is often silent at its early stages. By keeping up with your dental visits, you can prevent cavities from becoming serious.

How long do dental cleanings take?

We know that kids can get restless when going to the dentist. That’s why we like to keep our cleanings short and sweet — about 30 minutes.

Do dental cleanings hurt?

Dental cleanings should never be painful. At Acorn Pediatric Dental, our skilled and caring hygienists perform dental cleanings with a gentle hand to ensure your child feels comfortable the entire time.

Are cleanings covered by my dental insurance?

Every dental insurance plan is different. However, most dental insurances cover 100% of preventive dental care, which includes dental cleanings and exams. If you have any questions about insurance coverage, financing, or payment options, please reach out to us!
