Your Dentist

Every DentaQuest member has a Main Dentist. This dentist can help keep your child’s teeth healthy. They also can fix most teeth problems. Your child’s Main Dentist also can send your child to a specialist for teeth problems that are harder to fix, if needed.
If you have questions about your Main Dentist you can contact us.
