Thank You for Choosing Our Practice
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our practice. We are committed to doing everything possible to provide you with high quality, state-of-the-art periodontal and implant care and also to make your visit to our office a pleasant experience.
What to Bring on Your First Visit
If you received our welcome packet prior to your first visit to our office, please bring the completed forms with you to your appointment. Otherwise, please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to complete the medical/dental health questionnaire, the patient information form and review and sign the financial information form or click on the pdf files below to print a copy. If you have a complicated health history, please mail it to our office so that we might review it in advance. Be sure to list all medications with dosages and any natural supplements, attaching an extra sheet if necessary.
Also, bring your insurance cards for us to copy and if your general dentist has given you a written referral or x-rays, please remember to bring them with you to your appointment.
What to Expect on Your First Visit
Your first visit will include the following:
- Review of your complete dental and medical history form
- Review of your dental x-rays and/or taking new x-rays as required
- Oral and soft tissue exam
- Cancer screening
- Bite check
- Diet and Nutritional analysis
After a thorough exam, Dr. Newman will discuss his findings and all options for treatment. His goal is to help you come to an informed decision regarding care.
We accept most private insurance plans and will assist you in determining what portion of your treatment is covered by insurance. Please understand, however, that you are ultimately responsible for payment of all services. Should your insurance not cover what is predicted, you will be responsible to pay any uncovered portion.
Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to ensure any portion of treatment not covered by insurance is affordable. We accept cash, check, major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover) as well as outside interest-free financing through Care Credit.
