Appointments

Parents looking for dental services for one or more of their children, should 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.

Infants and Babies

To prevent future dental problems of all kinds, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that a baby’s first oral exam should be no later than his/her first birthday (6-12 months old).
