Your First Visit
Your first visit to the doctor typically includes a series of x-rays that allows the doctor to view tooth decay, missing teeth, malformed roots and the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted.
The initial visit also involves getting your medical history. When you share your medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform your doctor if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell the doctor the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Inform the doctor of any changes in your health or medications. This information will help the doctor to select the most safe and effective method of treatment for you.
After the doctor has evaluated your records, we discuss any follow-up treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.
Regular checkup appointments typically take 45 to 60 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
Payment & Office Policies
The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets. We also accept assignment from most insurance plans, and file the necessary papers to the insurance company. We work hard to make dental care affordable and to make sure that you realize your insurance benefits.
In an effort to keep fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:
For extensive treatment, we will offer a fee discount if full payment is made at the onset of treatment since no further bookkeeping fee is needed.
To fit your individual needs for extensive treatments, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of time through CARE CREDIT
For your convenience, we accept payment by VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER AND CARE CREDIT.
If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and patients are responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
