Your First Visit
We are passionate about creating a welcoming and comfortable environment for your child’s dental care. We want your child’s first visit to go smoothly. We have broken it down to a few easy steps.
Make an Appointment
You know your child and what time of day they are at their best. We will try to accommodate you and your child with an appointment time that works well. Please give us a call and arrange a specific time with our patient scheduler.
Fill Out Some Forms
You will be texted or emailed a link to fill out new patient forms prior to the first visit. Please fill out these forms prior to the visit to save time. If you have dental insurance please add the information during that process and bring the card with you to the first visit.
There is no need to over prepare your child for the first visit. We encourage parents and caregivers to stay positive and let us “do the talking” about any questions or worries your child has. Children can sense anxiety so it is important to not use hot-button words like “Hurt, Shot, Drill and Needle”. We will address any concerns you may have about your child’s oral health and together outline a “road map” forward to re-enforce good habits and stress prevention starting at an early age.
Get our address and directions on our Offices page so you can arrive at our office hassle free and on time. We have plenty of parking at both locations. If you would like more information on what to expect when bringing your children in for a visit, you can find more detail on our Dental Services page. If you don’t find answers to all your questions, you are welcome to give us a call. We are here to help.
Notes On Insurance
- We are in-network providers with many of the major insurances (Delta Dental, United Concordia, Metlife, Geha, Regence, Premera, Guardian, Aetna, and more!) We want care to be affordable. Note: We are currently not accepting Apple Health (Medicaid) other than on referral basis for treatment from local clinics.
- Please check ahead of the visit by calling our office if you are concerned whether we are in-network with your insurance. Regardless, we are willing to help in any way and will submit claims for you.
- Having insurance is not a guarantee of payment. Most preventive procedures and many basic restorative procedures are covered, but this varies by insurances. Any balance remaining after insurance reimbursements and adjustments will be the responsibility of the parent or caregiver to pay within 30 days. We will submit for prior-authorization before any major treatments, but it is ultimately up to the insurance company to provide this information to you.
