Endodontists help to maintain your teeth by working on the soft, inner tissue of the teeth, referred to as the pulp. Becoming a specialist in endodontics means receiving several extra years of training, education, and experience, focusing on procedures, most commonly root canal therapy, that can save teeth from needing to be extracted.
Your first visit to the office depends on your medical history, current dental needs, and the services you may need. We ask that you bring the following information on your first visit. We also ask that you inform us of any conditions that would require consideration before a surgery, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, low iron, and others, as well as medications such as blood thinners, or antibiotics.
While we also take x-rays at our practice, we ask that you bring any previously taken x-rays from within the last six months with you as well. You can either have your previous dentist forward them to us, or you can bring them in with you on your first visit.
We always work closely with our patients to get them scheduled at their earliest convenience. If you’re experiencing pain, or require emergency dental services, we will do everything that we can to see you on the same day.
It’s our goal to make our scheduling fit the needs of our patients. However, we do provide several dental services, all of which require different amounts of time to perform. We also handle emergency situations which can delay other procedures
Payment for services is due at the completion of your treatment. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. We are committed to providing you with the best possible care. We do participate with most of the major insurances. We will be happy to process your claim for reimbursement, provided you furnish us with all your insurance information.
We must emphasize that our relationship is with you, not your insurance company. While the filing of insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to our patients, all charges are your responsibility from the date the services are rendered. We realize that temporary financial problems may affect timely payment of your account. If such problems do exist, we encourage you to inform us promptly upon your initial visit for assistance in the management of your account.
If you have any questions about the above information or any uncertainty regarding your insurance coverage, please don’t hesitate to ask or give us a call. We are here to help you.
