Appointments

We strive to provide our patients with exceptional care, as well as respecting their valuable time and investment. Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. We request 24-hour notice for cancellations.

Any patient more than 10 minutes late may be rescheduled unless we can accommodate the patient without infringing upon another patient’s appointment time.

Insurance

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary greatly, 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. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.

First Visit

Our office recommends that your child have their first dental visit six months after the first tooth erupts or no later than 12 months of age. This visit is designed to give you the information you need to help your child have optimal oral health in their early growing years.

We will perform a risk assessment for your child at this visit. From that information, we will design an individualized preventive dental health program that includes tips on brushing, fluorides, and proper diet. We will do anticipatory guidance about growth and development and oral habit influences. We will also provide counseling on oral emergencies.

Each year, we see many children age two and younger with beginning dental problems. We know that early intervention is the only reasonable way to insure your child starts with good oral health. Dental check ups for your children should begin at twelve months and continue every six months thereafter.

When you begin your child's dental check ups, you are establishing a dental home for your child. We provide guidance for your growing child with periodic oral health evaluations in familiar surroundings. We also develop an invaluable knowledge about your child and are a resource of information for you at anytime. Our office is available 24 hours a day in case of emergencies. Your child's optimal oral health development is our goal.
