Amenities That Make Dentistry Fun

Remember when the toy chest was the most you could look forward to at the dentist? We’ve upped the game at Rio Dental & Orthodontics. At our fun children’s dentist in Irving, TX, kids can look forward to a whole host of “extras” that will take their minds off of dental care.

We have a private movie theater where they can sit back and relax with their favorite characters, fun video games to help pass the time in the waiting room (which won’t be very long anyway!), free toy prizes, and a fun and friendly staff to help them through the whole process.

Kids love those fun bonuses, and parents love the other little extras — like flexible payment options, four convenient locations, and a comprehensive range of services including dental AND orthodontics.

We hope you will just be left with asking yourself one thing… what’s not to love at Rio Dental & Orthodontics?

All the Dental Services Children Need

Your child’s smile requires a slightly different approach than your own, as it’s more vulnerable to cavities as the tooth enamel is developing. Orthodontic care is also a significant consideration for developing smiles. Visiting a dental team that is well-versed in the needs of children’s smiles will help ensure that your little one receives the care they need to grow up with a happy, healthy smile.

Some of our treatments that help keep kids smiling big include:

  • Checkups and cleanings that help prevent tooth decay and infection
  • Tooth-colored fillings to restore your child’s teeth in a beautiful way
  • Dental sealants and fluoride treatments to keep cavities at bay
  • Orthodontic solutions like traditional braces for growing smiles
  • Safe, effective sedation dentistry for nervous kiddos
  • And many more high-quality services!

Whatever it is your child’s smile needs, you can feel confident they will receive the best care when you partner with our team.

  • 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.
