Kids Dental visits – Dr Dental
Question: Do you really need to take kids to the dentist every six months? I am wondering if it is really necessary to take kids to see a dentist every six months. This seems like overkill to me and just a way for the dentist to make more money. My kids go to the dentist once a year and so far are cavity free. Even for myself it been more like three years since I last seen a dentist but I do not have any dental issues to speak of. I do not have current dental insurance for my family right now but even if I did I do see going to the dentist twice a year as necessary.
Reply: Seeing a dentist twice a year (or once every six months) is best suggested in order to maintain good dental health care and catch any small dental issue before it becomes a larger one. What you chose if best for you and your family though is up to you.
However, if it is about cost you may like to know that most dental insurance plans provide preventive care, such as twice a year cleaning and check ups at little to no cost to you.
