We recommend bringing your driver’s license and your insurance card so that we can verify your dental benefits. If you do not have dental benefit there is no need to worry we have an office plan that offer discounts on your dental treatment. If you choose to complete your paper work in the office you will be asked to complete forms relating to your medical and dental history.
Meet Your New Doctor
Once your paperwork is completed and your dental benefits are checked you will most likely receive x-rays, an exam, and if necessary a complete breakdown of your dental treatment needs. If everything is healthy you will qualify for your preventive dental cleaning. Your first visit is the best time to ask questions, address any concerns, and meet your new doctor. You will work with the doctor and treatment coordinator to help determine your ideal treatment plan. Your doctor will show you pictures and x-rays visuals along with the state of your oral health. If needed this visit will included a review along with a print out of your treatment plan. If you are in good oral health you will simply schedule your next preventive care visit in 6 mos. If you do need treatment you will be presented with your treatment options along with cost and payment options.
This is the best time to ask our financial team about your insurance coverage, payment options along with determining the best plan to fit within your budget. If you go home and still have question please don’t worry we understand that you may still have questions after your first visit. If this occurs please contact our office and we will be happy to set up a complimentary second consultation visit to explore other options available and we can work together to determine the ideal treatment plan with the best outcome for your personal needs.
