We Make Dentistry Enjoyable

Lots of kids are afraid of visiting their children’s dentist in Irving, but we’re on a mission to change how little ones think about dental care! Everyone on our staff enjoys working with kids, whether they’re toddlers, preteens, or adolescents. Our passion for what we do comes across in our gentle touch, encouraging manner, and positive attitude. Here is what some parents have had to say about what they experienced in our practice:

“I loved this place so much!! My son has sensory issues and has a hard time being comfortable at the dentist. The staff was AMAZING!! The Dentist we saw was also AMAZING with him and was sensitive to my son’s sensory issues. The games, movies, and HUGE fish tank were a welcomed distraction!! Made him forget we were at the dentist.” — Vanessa Young (Google review)

“I have two young boys that I took with me. One is two and one is three. Everyone in the office was extremely patient with them and very friendly. My kids actually enjoy going to the dentist now. I recommend this office to anyone who has kids” — Zoe Brannon (Google review)

We’re All About Family

We value our patients and try to treat everyone who comes into our practice like family. In fact, we invite folks of all ages to come to us to receive top-quality dental care. We have three general dentists on staff who love to look after everyone’s teeth and gums, but we also have two board-certified pediatric dentists who specialize in addressing the unique needs of developing mouths.

Here is one comment that showcases our family-oriented approach to dentistry:

“I can’t Explain the joy that I have found them honestly am glad that the whole family can come to one place and have it all done … am exited the staff is great is a fun place and OMG clean clean I love it highly recommend” — Mirna Portillo (Google review)

  • Insurance
  • Finances
  • CareCredit

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
