Your First Visit
Upon entering our quiet and comfortable facility you will be greeted by our friendly staff. We value your time and will make every effort to ensure that you are seen with minimal waiting time.
When you make your first appointment you will have the option of having the proper paperwork emailed to you for your convenience to eliminate delays when you arrive. Otherwise, we will ask that you arrive a few minutes early if you are a new patient to fill out the necessary forms. If you have insurance, please be prepared with the proper information and identifications to allow prompt processing.
At your first examination, Dr. Sheth will do a thorough evaluation of your dentition and take the necessary x-rays to aid in diagnosis of any existing oral conditions. Digital photos may also be taken to provide better understanding of existing conditions. A proposed treatment outline will be generated and reviewed with you. All aspects of treatments will be explained, including the number of visits, finances, and insurance coverage. You are encouraged to ask questions and make decisions that are right for you without feeling rushed or pressured.
Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. For your convenience we accept most common forms of payment: personal checks, cash, Visa, and Mastercard. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office upon your request.
We will be happy to file an electronic eClaim and do everything possible to see that you receive available benefits of your insurance policy. If we are not in-network with your insurance plan, we will gladly file a claim on your behalf so that you receive maximum reimbursement from your insurance carrier.attempt to process all of your claim submissions to help you maximize your insurance benefits. Dental insurance is different than most medical insurance plans and it is important to be aware of the following:
Insurance is an agreement between you and your insurance company. The insurance relationship constitutes an agreement between the carrier, the employer, and the patient. Our dental office is not a party to that contract. As such, we can make no guarantee of the estimated coverage or payment. However, our office will do all we can to facilitate claims payment, but we do not have the power to force your insurance company to pay.
Full dental fees are not always covered. Insurance companies base the amounts they pay on restrictive fee schedules, regardless of what the actual fee may be.
Not all your care may be covered. Not all dental services that are necessary for proper dental health are a covered benefit in all contracts. This depends on the kind of plan your employer has purchased.
Patients with insurance will be required to provide our office with the necessary information concerning your insurance coverage to allow correct filing of claims. Paients are expetced to pay any insurance co-pays at the time of treatment. In the event the exact covered amounts are unavailable, an estimated co-pay will be determined based on available benefits information and covearges.
