Welcome to a dental practice where there is no judgment – only a sincere desire to help you improve your dental health and feel better about your smile. Our staff has experience in working with dental patients just like you, in all stages of their recovery. We have only your best interests at heart and want to be an essential part of your recovery team.
Your first appointment with us can be one of the following:
A Comprehensive Evaluation
Dr. Alexander and his staff will perform a comprehensive examination to evaluate the overall health of your teeth, gums, teeth alignment and jaw joint function. We will also screen you for oral cancer, and engage you in a detailed conversation to learn about your previous dental experiences, any concerns you might have and your short and long-term goals for treatment.
Treatment of a Pressing Dental Concern
This examination and treatment will address a specific concern you might have, such as tooth pain, a broken tooth, stained teeth, inflamed or bleeding gums, painful jaw muscles, or white lesions.
Dental Cleaning or Dental “Prophylaxis”
You may want to schedule an initial cleaning along with one of the other types of appointments listed.
Feel free to schedule a tour to meet Dr. Alexander and his team to learn more about recovery dentistry, at no charge and with no obligation.
Payments and Dental Insurance Information
We understand that talking about money matters is uncomfortable for many in recovery; however, we want you to feel totally at ease speaking with us about these matters. Please feel free to speak to us about any questions you might have regarding fees for our services. We make it a habit to ensure you are aware of any “out-of-pocket” expenses before your dental visit or procedure.
Insurance Payment for Dental Treatment
We will discuss the payment that we expect to receive from you before your appointment. Payments for services rendered can be made by check or credit card. If you have dental insurance, we will complete and file your insurance forms at no charge; your insurer will reimburse you according to the terms and conditions of your specific plan. We will obtain your insurance information prior to your appointment. Depending on that information, we may be able to accept your dental insurance as payment.
Assistance with Dental Insurance Claims
We will complete and file your insurance forms with no charge to you. While we endeavor to secure maximum insurance benefits for the services we render, the insurance company is ultimately responsible to you, and you are responsible to us for the dental services we perform.
Please contact your employer or insurance carrier regarding the specifics of you dental plan if you have any questions regarding your insurance. It is always our pleasure to assist you with understanding your dental benefits.
Dental Treatment Financing
If you need extensive dental treatment, you have the option to make scheduled payments over time. Please feel free to discuss individualized payment options with us that make paying for services more manageable and less stressful. We work with several healthcare financing companies (i.e., CareCredit), that offer reasonable financing and repayment options.
