New Patient Information
Here at Pediatric Dental Specialists, our number one priority is to make your child as comfortable at the dentist as possible. Our office is designed with children in mind. With bright colors and a cheerful staff, we want your child to feel at home when they walk through our doors.
Your Child's First Visit
At your child's first visit, we will review your child's health history form with you. Your child will be introduced to members of our dental team and be invited to tour our office. We welcome and highly encourage you to join your child into the treatment area during the initial examination. This will give you the opportunity to see our staff in action and ask the doctor any questions, voice any concerns, or discuss different treatments and care options for your child.
During the examination, the doctor will examine your child's head and neck and then evaluate the health of their teeth, gums, and bite. Dental radiographs are taken only when necessary. The cleaning will likely be performed after everything has been demonstrated and explained to them. This helps put your child at ease. If your child needs any additional services, we will schedule it for a later appointment.
We will be happy to assist you with your dental insurance forms. If extensive treatment is needed, we will submit a treatment plan to your insurance carrier to establish eligibility and the patient co-insurance.
We make every effort to keep down the cost of your dental care. Definite financial arrangements can be made prior to treatment.
Methods of payment include:
- 1. Open Account – The total amount or the portion not covered by insurance is due at the time of treatment.
- 2. Bank Card – Services may be charged to a VISA, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX or CareCredit credit card.
- 3. We also offer a 5% discount on all charges paid in full at the time of visit that total $150.00 or higher that are paid with cash, check or debit card only.
