When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. You can save some time by downloading the required forms beforehand, filling them out, and bringing them with you.
Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
It is our goal to provide our patients with quality dental care. Part of this commitment includes ensuring you understand the fees for your care. You will be given an estimate for your treatment, and we do ask for payment at the time of service. For patients with insurance, we will estimate as closely as possible for your co-payment.
We have many financial options to choose from, such as convenient monthly payment plans, interest free for 6-12 months, through CareCredit®. Please ask our financial coordinator if you have any questions regarding fees or payments
Dental Insurance is not really insurance at all. It is not a payment to cover the cost of a loss. Instead, dental insurance is a money benefit, usually provided by an employer, to help their employees pay for routine dental treatment. Most benefit plans are only designed to cover a portion of the total cost of a person’s necessary dental treatment. We will be happy to file your insurance claim for you and work with you to best utilize and understand the benefits you have. Please speak with our Financial Coordinator for specific details.
