Do you work with dentalphobics?
Every patient that we see gets individualized attention from very caring and very thorough members at our practice. We especially enjoy working with people who are frightened or worried about visiting a dentist. We take extra time with those patients to make sure they understand exactly what is happening and feel comfortable with the process.
What will I need for my first visit?
Please arrive at least fifteen minutes early, and bring your driver’s license, list of all current medications and any dental insurance cards. Also, please download and fill out the New Patient forms on this page. Bring them with you to your appointment.
What is involved with the initial first exam?
The initial exam will last approximately 1 1/2 hours and will include a comprehensive exam, teeth cleaning, and full mouth x-rays at that time along with any treatment plan you may need. You will receive a head and neck exam, an oral cancer screening, and full TMJ evaluation. We will examine your teeth and gums and will provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems along with a proposed treatment plan.
Can I use my insurance?
We participate with many major dental insurances and are continually working to increase our insurance networks. At this time, we are in network with many of the United Concordia, Guardian, Aetna, Cigna Radius, Assurant Employee Benefits, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and Fidelio insurances. Please contact your insurance to see if we are in your network.
Payment is expected at the time of service. Copayments are coinsurances are expected at the time of the appointment. Although our office processes all of your insurance forms as a convenience to you, please understand we are not responsible for what your insurance does or does not pay toward your dental care.
