Dentistry for Children

El Rio Dentists see thousands of Tucson children annually. El Rio is committed to helping prevent dental disease in children. We have on staff  highly-trained Pediatric Dentists who focus on the oral health needs of children from infancy thru the teenage years. Dental services for children with special medical needs are provided as well.

Free Oral Health Assessments & Fluoride Treatments for Children

El Rio’s Fluoride Varnish Program works to significantly reduce the incidence of early childhood cavities in children. Children are given a free oral health assessment and fluoride varnish treatment by a dental hygienist while they wait for their pediatric medical or WIC appointment. El Rio educates families on the importance of oral health and encourages families to establish care at El Rio’s dental department.

Emergency Dental Care

Next Day or Same Day emergency dental care services are available for patients of all ages who have insurance or qualify for the sliding fee scale. We encourage and recommend that patients call 520-670-3909 for an emergency appointment. A patient may arrive at one of our three dental offices when they open and will be seen as time allows.

Affordable Options

El Rio is committed to the overall health of our patients and works to ensure that they have accessible and affordable options. We offer a discounted payment program for self-pay patients, based on household income. Registration is required and payment options will be discussed during registration.
