Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry Made Affordable
(under the Affordable Care Act)

Regular dental visits are as important for children as they are for adults. Taking your child for teeth cleanings and checkups at an early age can put them on the path to lifelong oral health. And now, because of the Affordable Care Act, pediatric dental coverage can be purchased on the Covered California marketplace for as little as $8.00 a month. Dental plans can be secured by visiting the Covered California website.

Under the new law, these optional dental insurance plans cover children up to 19 years of age. This provision is important, as it allows children to get braces and/or wisdom teeth removal before their eligibility expires on the family plan you purchase. If your children receive the proper pediatric dental care early in life, they will have a much better chance of maintaining a lifetime of good oral health.

“We were looking for an affordable dental option for a while now, and it is really good to see this cost effective option for kids. Dr. Lam’s office really helped us understand the options.”    ---- PR
