During your first visit to our clinic, you will be greeted by one of our friendly administrators who will gather all necessary information, including benefit information. We ensure we have a breakdown of each patient’s benefits, so we can accurately prepare you for any out-of-pocket costs and help you to best utilize your insurance benefits.
During your New Patient Exam and Hygiene appointment our compassionate clinical team will give you a comprehensive picture of your oral health and wellness without judgement. We will take a full series of X-rays, do a thorough cleaning, and one of our Dentists will do a complete visual exam to assess your mouth, complete with oral cancer screening.
If any treatment is needed, our team will take the time to show you any areas of concern on your x-rays and answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment options. Together, we will develop a treatment plan to prioritize your dental work. With the help of the front-end staff, we will present you with a financial plan outlining your dental treatment options so that you can make an informed decision.
Dental costs can be overwhelming, especially when you don’t have insurance coverage.

By providing these options, we hope to make paying for your dental treatment as convenient and affordable as possible.
