“I have six children and bring them all to Tufts Pediatric Clinic. It’s far from my house, but I’ll never change dentists.”
-Shukriyah Al-Jubory, Quincy, MA (parent of 6 patients)

At the Tufts Pediatric Dentistry Clinic our teams of specialists provides affordable, comprehensive dental care focused on the unique needs of children from 6 months to 18 years old.


Parents looking for dental services for one or more of their children, can request an appointment online or call (617) 636-6971. The initial visit is usually a comprehensive initial evaluation with an associated fee. This fee can vary depending on your needs (if you have recent, usable x-rays, the fee will be lower).

We currently accept the following insurance: Delta Dental, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna and MassHealth. Please call (617) 636-6971 to verify your insurance.
