Welcome to our practice! We are very excited that you have chosen us for your dental care. We realize you have options in choosing a dental provider and we appreciate your trust and confidence in our practice!
At your first appointment, your doctor will complete a comprehensive oral examination. This includes a complete review of your medical and dental history, all necessary x-rays and intraoral photos, study models (if necessary), oral cancer screening, periodontal health evaluation, and examination of your teeth and soft tissues. Following this exam, your dentist will discuss their findings with you, develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with, and then you will be scheduled according to your needs.
Please be prepared for your appointment by printing and completing the new patient registration forms. In order for our staff to be fully prepared for your visit, we ask that you either fax your completed forms to 941-894-1181 or e-mail to [email protected]prior to your dental appointment. If you plan to bring the completed forms with you to your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow us to input your information. If you have dental insurance, be sure to provide all requested information prior to your appointment so we may verify coverage, check benefits, and be able to provide the most accurate estimates possible. Payment is expected at the time of visit. If you are covered by insurance, we will expect payment of your portion at the time of service unless prior arrangements are made. We also have several financing options available and will be happy to discuss all options with you.
We ask that you make every effort to keep your appointments. Missing an appointment disrupts proper sequencing of care and delays completion of your treatment. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please call us at least 24 hours prior to your visit.
Our practice realizes the importance of our patients and we value our patients and their referrals greatly. We are always excited to see new smiles coming through our door! We very much appreciate your confidence in us and look forward to seeing you soon!
