It is enrollment time for my company’s benefits, and I am not sure if I should add my son to the dental insurance. He does not have teeth yet, and I do not think it is likely he will need any dental work in 2015.   I can swing a check up out of pocket and I think it would be cheaper than adding him to the dental insurance policy, but are there any big baby dental procedures or problems that could be costly?  

Answer: The recommendations for baby dental care these days suggest that you have your child seen as soon as his/her teeth come in. The reason for this is to catch any dental issues before they become larger more costly dental care problems.
