Your initial visit is our chance to get to know each other. We want to get to know you, not just your teeth.
We will do a thorough examination, possibly take some x-rays if necessary and explain the following:
- The condition of your teeth; what is good as well as what is not
- What options you have to improve your oral health and the urgency level of each.
- The cost of each option
You are always in the driver’s seat so you then choose the best option for you from doing nothing, to doing some minor treatment or even major treatment if appropriate.
If you just want to come an meet us first before we get into a more involved diagnosis or treatment plan.
At Deer Valley Dental Care, before we start a procedure, we’ll give you a cost estimate so you know approximately what the treatment fees will be. If you like, once we have a treatment plan, and the cost, we can check with your insurance company to see what is covered. This way, we can collect from your insurance company immediately if we have all the information we need.
Sometimes if this information isn’t readily available, you’ll have the choice of either delaying treatment until we have 100% of the information, or begin treatment right away on a pay-as-you-go basis. We’ll also accept a credit card imprint for any amount not covered by your dental policy.
In order to make this decision easier, a Deer Valley Dental Care Treatment Coordinator will be happy to take the time to go over your insurance coverage, and give you a better idea of what your best payment approach might be.
For your convenience, we accept payment from Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Interac. In some cases, payment plans can be made available for extensive treatment situations.
