How can we help you?

Most parents have plenty of questions about their children’s healthcare, and we invite your questions and concerns.

We’ve compiled a selection of questions that parents often ask us about our practice, our services, and pediatric dentistry in general. Take a look through and see if your questions are answered here.

If your question isn’t answered here or if you’d like additional information, you’re always welcome to give us a call at 309-827-KIDS(5437) or email us using our convenient online form.

 

Your Child's First Dental Visit

We follow the recommendation of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, both of which recommend that your first visit occur when your child's first baby tooth arrives or by their first birthday - whichever comes first.

We would like to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community by asking patients to call and reschedule if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, if you have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19, or you have traveled to a COVID-19 hot spot or out of state within the past two weeks. In addition, we are limiting only one parent/guardian to accompany our patients unless otherwise agreed upon. All persons that enter our building are to wear masks and are asked to keep a minimum social distance of 6 feet.
