If you’re getting ready for your first appointment at Scott Dooley Dentistry, we want to start by thanking you for giving us the opportunity to care for your family’s oral health. When you arrive at our office, one of our friendly team members will offer a warm greeting, answer any questions you may have, and help you complete your information forms, if you haven’t done so prior to arriving at our office. Next, we’ll show you through the office, and get you back to see the dentist as quickly as we can. Like any other checkup visit, we’ll capture necessary x-rays and images of any damaged areas or to establish a baseline of your current oral health. Then, the doctor will examine your smile and will clean your teeth. Before you leave, we’ll review your plan going forward, and help you understand any necessary dental treatments. If you have questions leading up to your appointment, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Scott Dooley Dentistry team.
New patient forms are available online for you to complete prior to your visit. Many patients find it much more convenient to complete these documents at home where all of the information they may need is available including insurance policies, medical histories, and contact information. If at any time you have questions or need assistance completing these forms, we ask that you call us right away. Any member of our team will be happy to help.
We do all that we can to help our patients have a great experience in our office. That includes partnering with patients to maximize their dental insurance coverage. We will file insurance claims with most PPO plans and providers. If you have questions about your specific benefit plan, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our knowledgeable team members for help.
For the out-of-pocket costs of treatment, we accept payment in full at the time of your visit. We take payment in the form of cash, check, or major credit card. We also work frequently with CareCredit, a third party medical and dental financier, that offers low and no interest financing plans for qualified patients for any treatment, even cosmetic dentistry and other services not typically covered by insurance. You can pre-qualify online, or one of our team members will be happy to help you complete your application in our office.
