Tongue and Lip Tie Services
NOTE: We are currently in the process of adding resources and information related to this service, please contact the office with any questions!
Thank you for contacting Browning & Cunningham Family Dentistry about our frenectomy services. We will be happy to schedule a consultation appointment at no charge to evaluate your child and interview you to address your questions and concerns. At this appointment, any information you can provide us from your lactation consultant would be helpful. In addition, please complete the Tongue and Lip Tie Referral Form and bring it with you to your appointment.
After the consultation, the front office will be happy to go over the treatment plan with you and discuss any insurance benefits that may be available to you. As a general dentistry practice, we are unable to bill your medical insurance. However, some dental insurance plans will provide benefits for these procedures and we will be happy to help you file for those benefits and receive reimbursement yourself. At the time of service, payment in full will be expected.
Our goal is to provide you with the ability to enjoy a happy breastfeeding experience, and to allow you and your baby to bond and enjoy the natural health benefits which breastfeeding can provide your family. We will provide you with realistic and factual information that will help you make an informed decision regarding the well being of your child.
