When it comes to the cost of paediatric dentistry, many factors influence the price:
- You should consider your child’s age and health status. It will also affect their treatment plan if they have pre-existing conditions or are under two years.
- You should ask about any procedures that need to be done during their appointment and how long it will take for each operation. Your dentist may recommend multiple appointments if necessary; these can add up quickly if you’re not careful!
- Keep in mind where your dentist’s office is located. Transportation costs may also add up over time if they’re farther away from home than usual (or vice versa).
- You should also consider the cost of any additional insurance you have to take out. If you’re already paying for dental coverage, then this shouldn’t be a problem. However, if your dentist recommends treatments not covered by your current plan, you may need to pay for them yourself.
