First Time Patients

Thank you for choosing our office for all your dental needs. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive. When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill our several forms that will get you acquainted with our office.

Your initial exam will last approximately two hours. This visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals and desires for your dental treatment. Generally, digital X-rays will be taken allowing your doctor to examine the jaw’s structure, teeth position and teeth decay. Oral hygiene instructions will also be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal-keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!

Payment Options

We strive to provide you with quality dental care that you expect and deserve without it being a financial burden for you. We offer a variety of flexible payment options to meet your financial needs.

We base our fees on the quality of materials we use and our level of expertise in performing your needed dental treatment.

For the convenience of our patients, we accept Visa, and MasterCard, as well as offer financing through CareCredit. Discounts are available for patients who pay in full prior to their dental treatment.

Insurance Options

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service.

As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them. Feel free to contact us with any questions pertaining to your insurance benefits.
