What Happens at Your First Appointment
A comfortable first visit with one of our doctors…
It’s all about you!
Good dental health happens more easily when you are completely at ease with our dental staff! That’s why we want to get to know you. Please don’t hesitate to make us aware of your past dental experiences and how we can work with you to keep you at ease.
The goal for your first visit is to assess your dental health and to help you correlate it with other health issues. We’ll discuss the concerns that you have about your oral health, and communicate honestly with you about your dental condition and treatment options. We’ll also need to have a complete set of dental x-rays, since many dental conditions do not exhibit symptoms until they are in an advanced stage, and because the signs of disease, such as decay and bone loss, are not apparent to the naked eye. You are welcome to bring a set of x-rays from your previous dental care provider if they are less than three years old.
Your dental examination performed by one of our doctors includes an examination of your teeth and existing crowns, bridges, and fillings, evaluation of your occlusion (bite) and periodontal (gum) evaluation. An oral cancer screening is also performed during the examination.
Finally, we’ll tell you what type of dental cleaning you need. Not all patients need the same level of dental cleaning, and we will tailor your cleaning to your dental condition depending upon the state of your gums and the amount of dental plaque and tartar on the surface of your teeth.
If your first visit is due to a dental emergency, we will determine the best course of action with you and provide emergency treatment. We will then recommend you schedule a more complete evaluation and definitive treatment so that future emergencies can be prevented. We do our best to see all emergencies within a day of your call.
We want to make excellent dental care available to patients regardless of their budget. We make a commitment to our patients to answer all clinical and financial questions before proceeding with treatment. If you ever feel that your questions about your treatment or your finances have not been answered to your satisfaction, please let us know.
We accept cash, checks, and credit cards, including VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. For those patients who need longer terms, there is the health care credit card, CareCredit®. CareCredit® offers a real advantage to many of our patients because it offers interest-free financing options of up to 12 months. And because the finance fee is paid by Waltzer Berry Dental Associates, these options are truly no cost to our patients. To learn more or apply for financing go to Care Credit®.
If you have dental insurance, we do provide insurance billing services and will be happy to file your claims on your behalf. Generally, a dental benefit plan is a contract between the employer or subscriber and the insurance company. That means that we will do everything we can to insure maximum benefits and timely payment, but if your carrier is not cooperative we may have to ask for your help. We will also contact your carrier on your behalf to obtain an outline of your benefits. It is, of course, important to remember that dental insurance, like any other insurance, is intended to help defray the cost of care and may not fully reimburse for all dental service fees. The benefit available is directly determined by the contract paid for by your employer. We’ll be happy to review your plan with you for any treatment that is proposed.
