Before your appointment, we ask that you take a few moments to complete new patient forms from the comfort of home. This ensures you’ll have more convenient access to necessary documents, and improve the efficiency of in-office time. Please complete our New Patient Information Form prior to your appointment.
We believe that your first visit at our office should be a process of co-discovery in regard to health or lack of thereof. In the presence of those findings a plan of action and treatment is established and followed. Once health is achieved and stable, yearly maintenance visits are recommended for maintenance. Learn more about our policies below, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
Payment Information, Financing, and Insurance
Financing dental care shouldn’t be mysterious, stressful, or difficult. Our knowledgeable dental team will be happy to walk you through payment options, financing solutions, and dental insurance policies at any time. Simply call our team and we’ll be happy to answer your questions. We process and file insurance claims for most providers to help patients receive the maximum possible benefit. At the time of services, patients will need to remit payment in cash, check, or credit card for the out of pocket costs of care. We also work with CareCredit to provide low and no interest financing plans for qualified patients.
We are happy to hear from you, answer your questions, and schedule an appointment.
