What to Expect at Your First Appointment
During your first appointment, you’ll need to plan to be in our office a little longer than usual, so Dr. Stansbury and the team can get to know you. We’ll begin by greeting you warmly when you arrive in the dental office. Then, one of our team members will take your new patient forms or help you complete them. We’ll show you around the dental office and introduce you to any of our team members who aren’t helping others. We’ll sit down to discuss your dentistry and health history. Dr. Stansbury will want to know about any current concerns, so we can address those first. Next, we’ll capture diagnostic images, examine your smile, and thoroughly clean your teeth. Finally, Dr. Stansbury will sit down with you one on one to develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve and maintain your healthiest smile.
We offer third-party financing through CareCredit, to help our patients obtain the quality dental treatment they need. This company offers low to no interest lines of credit for examinations and procedures even those that aren’t traditionally covered by dental insurance. You can find out more or get preapproved by applying online at the CareCredit website or the LendingTree website today. We will also be happy to help you apply for CareCredit at your appointment, so don’t hesitate to let us know if you would like our assistance with this application. We will process and file dental insurance claims and offer you an estimate for your part of the treatment costs, but we ask that you cover your portion of the cost at the time of treatment. We accept payment at the time of your treatment in the following forms:
