During your first visit, a thorough examination will be completed. This exam will include an oral cancer screening, diagnostic radiographs, intra-oral photos, and cavity detection. This information will allow us to make an accurate diagnosis of your oral conditions. After the exam, we will discuss any recommendations and answer any questions you may have. The key to our successful relationship is an open line of communication.
Our dental hygienists will perform a full general cleaning or begin any recommended therapy for treating gum and periodontal disease. They will also provide oral hygiene instructions, along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth.
Making sound decisions about your dental care and oral health is an easy thing to do with the right preparation beforehand:
Make a list of questions to ask our office, so you don’t forget anything on the day of your appointment. This includes:
- Concerns you have or oral problems you’ve been experiencing.
- If you have dental insurance, remember to bring your insurance card with you.
- If any treatment is recommended, we will discuss options and benefits with you before proceeding. We will work within an established budget, so you obtain the care you desire in an affordable fashion.
Together we can achieve a common goal: giving you a beautiful smile, and keeping your teeth, gums, and jaw joints healthy!
New Patient Forms
To prepare for your upcoming appointment, our dental office provides our patient forms online. Completing these forms before your visit will help ensure your timely check-in for your appointment. Please complete your new patient paperwork prior to your appointment. If you are unable to complete the forms online, we ask that you arrive for your appointment 15 minutes early, so you may complete them in the office.
Dental insurance is intended to cover some, but not all of the costs of your dental care. Many plans cover preventative care and apply a deductible and co-insurance for routine dental work, payable at the time of service.
We can file most insurance claims for you. Please bring your insurance plan information with you during your first visit. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. If you have coverage questions specific to your plan, check with your human resources coordinator or your insurance enrollment package. Reimbursement amounts are not, and have never been, a guide for quality care.
We are considered in-network for Delta Premier, Metlife, Aetna, Cigna, and Guardian. We also accept many other traditional dental plans as out-of-network.
We accept payment for the portion of costs not covered by dental insurance in the form of cash, personal check, and credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
We request that you give us 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment in order to avoid a cancellation fee.
