Frequently Asked Questions
Is teeth whitening effective?

When should my child start dental visits?
Dr. Singh and Dr. Maynard recommend children see a dentist before their third birthday. If your children are under the age of three and you have any concerns about their dental health or development we would be happy to see them at any age. While treatment usually isn’t necessary at this age, early childhood visits promote positive future visits. Your child can become accustomed to the sights, sounds, and people at our office by accompanying you to your dental checkups. Once your child’s teeth begin erupting, Dr. Singh or Dr. Maynard will do a quick and gentle inspection to make sure the teeth are developing properly. It is important that you clean your baby’s mouth and help your toddler brush his or her teeth every day. At your visit, ask Dr. Singh or Dr. Maynard for advice on good oral healthcare for your child.
My gums bleed. Should I be concerned?
Yes. Bleeding, red, sensitive, or swollen gums can indicate gum disease. About 80% of American adults have some form of gum disease, and it has been linked to serious health problems. If your gums bleed, schedule an appointment with Dr. Singh or Dr. Maynard.
Does Dr. Singh accept dental insurance?
Yes. We accept dental insurance and we are happy to file all insurance claims as an out of network provider. Learn more about our dental insurance procedures here.
