What Does Your Child’s Dental Insurance Plan Cover?

Many parents wonder whether their babies require dental insurance, and the answer is, yes! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you bring your little one in for their first checkup and cleaning by the time their first tooth grows in, which is usually around when they’re six to 12 months old. If your infant is covered under your insurance plan and you stay in-network with your provider, then you shouldn’t need to pay out-of-pocket for their visit. Another fact to keep in mind is that having a baby counts as a qualifying life event, which means you can make changes to your plan when your child is born so you can include them in your coverage.

Before you try the old “tie a string to a doorknob” solution, read the below dentist-recommended dos and don’ts for pulling baby teeth:
