FAQ
 

 

DOCTOR / PATIENT QUESTIONS

Many times, dentists and their patients have questions regarding the treatment they are to receive in an office to which they are being referred. Several of the most common are listed below, and you might wish to inform your patients accordingly.

Radiographs: Please inform our office of any radiographs which are available. For complete denture patients, a panoramic or equivalent film is usually required.

Appointment Length: A patient's first appointment in our office may be lengthy, usually 60-90 minutes. We will be taking this time to become acquainted, as well as to perform a thorough examination.

Number of Appointments: As our denture procedure is based on many measurements needed to customize the prosthesis to the patient's needs, more appointments are needed. On average, most denture cases in our office require 4-6 appointments before completion. Of course, immediate dentures and temporary appliances may require less time.

Expense: The fees charged in our office depend upon the requirements of the individual case. Ours is not a discount or "assembly line" production practice.   We are proud of the materials and time that we utilize in each case, and we believe that patients will see the difference in the way they are treated. We offer some payment plans through our office, and also  have longer term financing available through an outside finance company.

Dental Insurance: We are always glad to help patients receive the dental benefits to which they are entitled. However, our office does not accept assignment of insurance benefits as payment. The office makes payment arrangements individually with each patient, and will file insurance for patient reimbursement

Handicap Access: Our office is easily accessible for those patients in wheelchairs and walkers. Please notify our office if there are any special considerations.
