Our Office Policies

ourofficeWe are open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:

Normal Business Hours:
Monday & Tuesday: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Wednesday & Thursday: 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Summer Hours:
Monday - Thursday: 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Scheduling Appointments

We try our best to accommodate our patients as much as possible when scheduling appointments. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience. Some appointments may require the child to miss some school; however, these are considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum.

We request 48-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, but we ask for your help as a courtesy to all of our patients. Continued broken confirmed appointments may result in an additional charge.

Office Visits

During the routine office visit, you are welcome to stay with your child the whole time or relax in our reception area. If your child seems nervous about the visit, we can even treat a small child while he or she sits in your lap.

We will do our best to explain every step of the visit in language your child can understand. During the visit, you should also feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

Insurance

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. We are in net work with several PPO plans and offer the ability to file your claims electronically to minimize any out of pocket expense. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. Because insurance policies vary greatly, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
