High-quality dental care and patient comfort are the goals of Pediatric Dental Specialty Associates in Flossmoor, IL. We are committed to helping your child achieve the best possible dental results in a comfortable and child-friendly environment.
Your child should have a comprehensive dental examination regularly, which includes a thorough examination of his or her teeth and gums. We use the findings from our examination to formulate a complete diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan for your child.
Recommendations for treatment are explained at a consultation appointment prior to their treatment appointment. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the best possible information concerning your child's treatment options. Our time investment in parental education enables us to render the best possible outcome for your child's dental treatment.

The goal of most dental insurance policies is to provide only basic care with coverage for some specific dental services. Many services may not be covered under your policy. The benefits that you receive from the dental insurance company has nothing to do with your needs or achieving a high-quality complete result.
Our office will do everything possible to help you understand and make the most of your dental insurance benefits. As a courtesy, our office will complete and submit your insurance forms to achieve the maximum reimbursement to which you are entitled.
