When you come to our periodontal office in Lincoln, we want your time with us to be as efficient and smooth as possible. We strive to stick to our schedule while allotting each patient our undivided attention so that they leave feeling well cared for. Below is some information that you ought to know before you arrive at our office to help us provide the best care. Please review the following so that you can be better prepared.
After we quickly check you in when you walk through the door, we’ll promptly welcome you back into one of our operatories where you’ll meet one of our periodontists. They can then examine your mouth, discuss your treatment options, and go through financial projections and other information. In total, this appointment can take up to an hour, ensuring that we are fully aware of your needs and goals and that you understand what you’re responsible for paying moving forward.
Every patient who is coming to our office for the first time needs to complete our new patient forms. This paperwork gives us a more complete medical and dental history, insurance information, and more. That doesn’t mean that you need to arrive extra early and spend additional time in our waiting room. You can download and print these forms beforehand and bring them already completed. That way, we can process your paperwork and have you ready to start on time.
Do you have dental insurance benefits? When you come in for your first appointment, be sure to bring this information with you. Our experienced team members know how to handle the ins and outs of the insurance world and how to maximize your coverage. We are in-network with Delta Dental and Blue Cross Blue Shield, but we are happy to file claims with most other dental insurance plans as well.
Regardless of whether you have dental insurance or not, some procedures may cost more than what you want to pay in just one payment. CareCredit, a trusted third-party financier, offers a flexible alternative. For those who qualify, affordable, low-interest rates are available to spread out the cost of treatment.
