Your First Visit
After you’ve been quickly checked in by our friendly team, you’ll be escorted to your treatment room, where a staff member will give you a pre-exam and take some X-rays. Your dentist will then come in, spend a little time chatting with you about your dental history and goals, and give you a more detailed exam. They’ll go over their findings with you, using the images from earlier as visual guides, and discuss your treatment options in detail. You’ll be given plenty of time to ask questions, and once you and your dentist have agreed on a care plan, you’ll be escorted back to the front desk.

Our dental office consciously chooses to prioritize a patient’s needs and not let their care be dictated by their insurance coverage. As a result, we are not in-network with any dental insurance providers. This allows us for greater flexibility in the techniques, materials, and labs we can use to deliver the best possible experience and results. If someone’s insurance plan offers coverage for our recommended treatment, it can obviously be used to help offset the cost.
Dental insurance generally has several components. Your premium payments, an annual benefit, a deductible, and the copayment. In nearly every situation, nothing is different when a patient visits a dentist that is in-network or out of network with regards to premium payments, annual benefit, or deductible. There may only be a difference in copayments for some treatments. For cleanings and x-rays, there likely will be little if any difference.
We comprehensively verify your insurance, you will have a full understanding of all aspects of your care as it pertains to your insurance, and we will file all claims for you. Ultimately, the most important part of this is that we have the ability for years to come to provide you with care that you deserve!

Patients can sign up for plans that are as short as 6-months or as long as 36-months based on their needs and credit approval.
