Patients are always carefully monitored during treatment, ensuring the highest standards of safety. To find out more about conscious sedation, please contact our practice today.
Our patients are seen by appointment with enough time to ensure quality, both of dentistry and of the relationship between our patients and ourselves. Time is allowed for questions and explanations. This also means that our patients are seen on time. We respect your schedule, and every effort is made to seat our patients on time. Our staff will contact you in advance to confirm your appointment with you. But even if we are not able to reach you, we know we can count on you to be here as scheduled. Since we do not overbook, a "no show" means an empty office for us. Even the most reliable people occasionally need to reschedule their appointments. If this happens to you, simply call us soon as possible. Aside from a big "thank you", it allow us enough time to schedule and treat patients in need of urgent dental care.
During your first appointment, you will have time with Dr. Polit or Dr. Costello so that you can get to know each other and discuss your desires and expectations from your dental care. Next, we will use our intra-oral camera to study the condition of your teeth. Next, the necessary x-rays needed to complete your examination will be taken. Also included in your examination will be a detailed charting of the current condition of your teeth, gums, and bone support. The doctors will also check for the presence of oral cancer as well as the condition of the joints and muscles in your face and jaws.
Upon completion of this comprehensive examination we will discuss the overall findings, goals, expectations, and treatment options.
We participate with most insurance companies and will work hard to help you get the maximum benefits. Remember, your benefits are determined by your employer, not your dentist and are meant to aid you in paying for dental care. They generally do not pay 100% of treatment costs. Insurance benefits vary greatly from one policy to another. It will be your responsibility to pay any amount not covered by your benefits. We firmly believe that patients with insurance deserve the high quality of care as patients without insurance and will therefore share all treatment options available to you, not just what your insurance benefits allow.
