Our team at Jewel Lake Dental is determined to help you and your loved ones enjoy dazzling healthy smiles for the rest of your lives. To make that happen, we want to ensure that your first visit to our dental office starts our relationship off on the right foot. The information on this page will help you prepare for your initial visit so that you know ahead of time what you will need to do to prepare for your appointment. Don’t forget that you can always call us if you have any questions.
First of all, you need to complete the necessary paperwork (assuming you haven’t already done so) informing us about any dental concerns you currently have as well as your relevant medical information. Once we call you back to our treatment area, we can take the necessary X-rays and carefully check for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. We’ll also take the time to remove any plaque and tartar we find before they lead to decay. At the end of your visit, we’ll discuss the state of your mouth and make arrangements for follow-up treatments depending on your needs.
The forms that you fill out for your first appointment give us important context about your dental health and history so that we know what we need to look for while we’re checking your mouth. Completing this paperwork does take time, but if you’d rather not stay in our waiting room longer than you’d need to, we encourage you to download the necessary forms using the link below. Doing so could ultimately deduct as many as 15 minutes from your overall appointment time! Please call us if you have any questions about how to fill out the forms.
If you have dental insurance, it’s important to use your benefits wisely so that you can reduce the amount that you need to pay for care yourself. Please call us before your appointment to give us your insurance information so that we can determine whether we accept your plan. Since we’re in-network with a number of major providers, many patients can enjoy the maximum amount of possible savings here at our dental office. Don’t worry; we’ll go ahead and file claims for other providers as well!
The PPO insurances that we accept include:
Of course, not every treatment is going to be fully covered by your insurance. In these situations, it helps to have other options that can help you take control of the financial aspect of your care. With dental financing, you can break the price of a given treatment into a series of monthly installments that can be made to fit more easily with your budget. This is also an excellent option for those that don’t have dental insurance in the first place. If you’re interested in a financing plan, call us today.
Our in-house savings plan is another way we help uninsured families save as much as possible on their dental care. Under our plan, you will receive a discount on various services in exchange for a membership fee. Unlike with dental insurance, there aren’t deductibles or annual maximums to worry about. You can call us to learn more about the particulars of our savings plan. Be sure to mention whether you are interested in getting a plan for just yourself or every member of your family.
