The New Patient
As a new patient, please note to bring the following items: a photo ID, insurance cards, and referral card or letter given by the referring general dentist or a physician. If the patient is below 18 years of age, he/she must be accompanied by a legal guardian (in most cases, a parent). If you prefer to have IV sedation on the first day you visit (to have a procedure done), please refrain from eating or drinking for 6 hours and bring someone 18 years or older to accompany you when you leave the office.
Most patients will be seen by appointments only. Under special circumstances, we will accept walk-in patients (such as acute pain, facial swelling, or facial trauma); however, there is no guarantee how long the patient has to wait to be seen by the doctor. There is always a possibility that the patient may be rescheduled to another day for a recommended procedure after the doctor's initial evaluation.
We accept major insurance plans. Please call the office to check if we are a provider for your insurance plan.
Our office accepts major credit cards and cash. We accept personal checks; however, personal checks need to be written and given to the office one week prior to surgery. If there is any issue with the checks (i.e., rejected checks), there will be an office inconvenience fee added on top of the price. Please note that the patient is fully responsible of all charges of the services rendered regardless of their insurance coverage. If the insurance covers a partial payment of the service, the patient has to pay out-of-pocket the remainder of the balance (copay).
