Patient Information

How Are Appointments Scheduled?

Each patient receives an individual appointment time. We try our best to coordinate our appointment time with the patient’s scheduling priorities.

 

Do You Accept Insurance?

We are a Premier Provider for Delta Dental and our office will be happy to process any dental insurance you may have. However, all insurance policies are not the same, and we recommend you check your benefits book for your specific coverage. If you bring your benefits book with you, we will be glad to assist you.

Please note that the estimated insurance co-pay and deductable will be due at the time of the visit. If you would like us to submit your insurance electronically, we will require a credit card authorization on file to cover any balance due after the insurance payment has been made, or after 60 days if the insurance is declined. For major treatment we will submit a predetermination of insurance benefits which will itemize your insurance coverage.

Will I Have To Wait Long?

We try to schedule our patients in a timely manner, but sometimes emergencies do arise and may cause delays in our schedule. We will inform you of any delay. Please inform us if you have to be done by a certain time. If you're on a tight schedule, we can schedule your appointment in the early morning or early afternoon to try to avoid any possible delays.

 

What Is The Earliest Appointment You Have?

If you like, we can schedule your appointment when you call and place your name on the priority list. If there are any changes in the schedule, we will call to schedule you sooner.

 

 

What Is The Best Age For A Child To See A Dentist?

Between the ages of one and two years old, we offer a complimentary first visit in which we will review brushing, diet, and fluoride supplements. We will also evaluate your child's tooth development and airway, and will discuss any habits that he or she may have. Our goal is to make your child feel comfortable with our office and staff and to create a positive dental health experience.

 

What Is The Best Age To Have An Orthodonic Exam?

Recent studies have shown that between the ages of 6 and 7 years old is the recommended time for the ortho exam.

If a child has an under bite (protruded lower jaw), crossbite, thumb habit, or a breathing problem (mouth breathing, snoring, allergies, asthma), a dental visit between the ages of 2-4 would be indicated.

Do I Have To Pay At The Time Of A Visit?

Payment for services will be made at the time of the visit. We accept cash, checks, and Visa/ Master Cards. We also offer Care Credit which enables credit qualified patients to make interest free payments for up to 12 months as well as extended payments at various rates. For visits in which the services exceed $500.00, there will be a 5% courtesy off the fee providing that the payment is made in full at that visit.

 

Are Other Fee Courtesies Available?

Senior Citizens Courtesy: Patients who are 65 years or older will receive a 5% fee courtesy when payment in full is paid at the time of the visit.

Prepaid Appointments: Patients with procedures over $500 will receive a 10% preferred courtesy when payment in full is made at least 7 days prior to the appointment. If the patient changes the appointment without giving us two working days notice, the 10% courtesy will be forfeited

Changing Appointments: We require at least 2 working days notice to cancel or change an appointment without incurring a broken appointment fee.
