In addition, Cornerstone Care’s Outreach Department provides mobile dental services. Our licensed dentists and hygienists visit local Head Start programs, schools, child care centers, and other community locations to provide complete preventative dental services including dental exam, dental cleaning, x-rays, fluoride application and dental sealants. The goal is to provide preventative oral healthcare for children and to provide a dental home for patients.

Cornerstone Care provides classroom-based education programs to teach children healthy dental habits early in life. If you are interested in visiting Southwestern PA's & Northern WV's top dentist, make an appointment with Cornerstone Care today.
As a general rule of thumb, adults should visit their dentist for a cleaning once every six months. However, you may need more frequent visits depending on your oral needs.
Children should visit the dentist by their first birthday, or 6 months after the eruption of their first tooth. After that, experts recommend that children visit the dentist twice a year.
One of the most effective ways to get your kids to practice good habits is by modeling good habits yourself. Be enthusiastic about brushing your own teeth to help make your child excited about brushing theirs. Cornerstone Care’s dental hygienists can recommend creative ways to encourage your children to brush their teeth if you want suggestions.
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral found in water and a variety of foods that helps prevent tooth decay. It does this by making tooth enamel more resistant to acid from plaque and bacteria in the mouth. Children who drink fluoridated water from birth have been found to experience less dental decay when compared to children who don’t.
