First Visit Expectations
We know that first visits to any doctor’s office can be intimidating. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional well-being is, too.
What you can expect during your initial visit:
During your first visit, we will give you a tour of our office and get to know you by asking some questions about your medical and oral health history. Please bring a list of any medications you may be taking, their dosages, and include all vitamins and over-the-counter supplements.
We love to educate our patients and answer questions, so don’t be shy! We encourage you to ask questions and express your concerns or desires.
Next, we will perform a comprehensive oral exam that includes a non-invasive oral cancer screening, periodontal probing, charting your existing dental restorations, and x-rays. If no signs of periodontal disease are present, you will have a routine cleaning after your exam. If we do notice signs of periodontal disease, we may reschedule the cleaning portion of your visit to allow for more time and to get pre-authorization from your dental insurance provider.
Once your exam is complete, Dr. Meyer will review her findings with you and create a treatment plan that reflects your wants and needs while giving you a functional, healthy smile.
We offer many payment options and can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.
We want your visit with us to exceed your expectations, so please ask any questions and offer any suggestions you have!
Financial and Insurance Information
We want to help you receive the dental care you deserve. We discuss all cost and payment options with you to make sure you are comfortable with your treatment plan and to answer any questions you have prior to the start treatment. You will never have surprises when it comes to your bill.
We want you to get the most out of your budget, so we go to great lengths to pre-authorize and file patients' dental insurance paperwork with your provider to ensure you get the best coverage available to you.
We are a Preferred Provider (PPO) for many dental insurance companies. If you need assistance, or have questions about your insurance policies or claims, our staff is knowledgeable and always available to help you.
Popular Payment Options
We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards and work with CareCredit and accept half the payment when work is started and the remaining half of payment when Crown and Bridge work is completed, so you can get the care you need when you need it.
