Welcome to All Smiles Dental Care! We look forward to meeting you. During your first visit, we will review your medical and dental histories and sleep survey. We will perform a comprehensive exam of your oral soft tissue, teeth and gums. We will complete a VelScope exam. We will take necessary x-rays so we have all the information required to make a proper diagnosis. Then we are able to discuss options for your particular situation and develop a customized treatment plan for your oral health. This visit will likely be the most important one that you have at our office.
If you are a new patient to our office, the attached file contains our new patient bundle with forms that will need to be filled out when you arrive at our office. Printing them, filling them out and bringing them with you will allow us to attend to your medical needs more quickly than completing them on your arrival. Thank you and please call our office if you have any questions at all.
We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard and Debit. It’s a great way to accumulate points on your credit card and you can apply the payment from your dental plan before you bill is due. We submit to the patient’s insurance for them and help them to interpret their plan details and get the most out of their policy.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
