In fact, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit their dentist by the time they turn one. Ideally we’d to see your child as soon as their first tooth comes in, but no later than their first birthday.
As a parent, you play a huge roll in making your child’s experience fun and positive! Counting teeth together, reading children’s books about the dentist, and playing games are all great ways to shake off those nerves and make going to the dentist an amazing adventure!
We start by going over your child’s medical/dental history followed by an examination. If we find anything significant during this exam we’ll discuss all your options. After that, we perform a thorough cleaning and polishing of the teeth followed by a fluoride application.
During your entire visit, our friendly staff will explain every procedure to your child in words they can understand – removing all fear of the unknown!
ICTeeth Pediatric Dentistry is a fee-for-service practice. Regardless of the current family status of the child’s parents or guardians, our policy is that the parent or guardian with the child during their first visit is responsible for payment at the time of service, and all visits after that. This also means that, the person signing all forms at the initial appointment is responsible for your child’s account.
ICTeeth Pediatric Dentistry is a preferred provider for Delta Dental Network, Metlife, Blue Cross/Blue Shield Network, Aetna, Cigna Radius and PPO Core Networks, and all three KanCare dental plans (Envolve, United Health Care Community and Aetna Better Health of Kansas). If applicable, you will be responsible for your co-pay and any fees not covered by your provider at the time service is rendered.
If your child is covered by any other insurance carrier and you are “out-of-network”, a team member will electronically file your claim on your behalf. You will be responsible for all fees not covered by insurance at the time service is provided.
All patients must provide accurate verification of insurance eligibility during each visit in order for ICTeeth Pediatric Dentistry to file insurance claims on your child’s behalf. Parents/Guardians who are unable to provide verification should expect to make payment in full at the time of treatment.
If your child is not covered by a dental insurance provider, you will be responsible for all fees at the time care is provided.
ICTeeth Pediatric Dentistry accepts cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, CareCredit, and personal checks, with proper identification. A $35.00 fee is assessed for any returned checks.
ICTeeth Pediatric Dentistry reserves the right to add finance charges not to exceed 5% of outstanding balance on the account if more than 60 days past due.
