How can we help you?
We always welcome your questions and concerns about our practice, the services and therapies we offer, and dentistry in general. We believe that education and information are crucial, and we make every effort to help our patients become active participants in their own care.
These questions are ones that we are commonly asked. If your question isn’t answered here or if you would like more information, feel free to call our office or fill out our convenient online form.
Custom Comprehensive Treatment Plans
Dental insurance will usually cover necessary procedures such as fillings, root canals, periodontal treatments, and extractions. Cosmetic procedures are generally not covered by insurance, but every plan is different. Our office will be happy to review your insurance coverage and your treatment plan to create an estimate of what your insurance will cover and what your responsibility will likely be. Keep in mind that estimates are not a guarantee of coverage.
If your insurance plan does not cover the procedures you choose, we have financial options available to you. In addition to cash and check payments, we accept Visa and MasterCard as well as Care Credit. If you do not have a Care Credit account, we will be happy to help with the application process. Once approved, Care Credit acts like a credit card for many medical and dental procedures, allowing you to break up your payments into monthly installments.
We also offer an in-house dental savings plan that can help reduce the cost of your smile makeover. Members of our Quality Dental Plan enjoy many benefits, including free basic services such as exams, x-rays, and cleanings; and discounts on other services, including cosmetic services. Ask about the Quality Dental Plan for more information about enrolling.
Dr. Delwiche and her staff believe that you know better than anyone what your dental treatment goals are. Everyone’s mouth is different, and everyone’s priorities are different, too. We work with you to determine what you want to get out of your treatment, then help you craft a customized treatment plan to achieve your goals.
A comprehensive plan that consists of multiple procedures can seem overwhelming, so we will help you prioritize your treatments based on what’s most important to you as well as what the most immediate threats to your overall dental health are. Active decay, gum disease, and cosmetic issues are usually considered the most urgent. Decay and disease left untreated can become even bigger problems in the future. By treating them now, we can save you from further procedures and possible tooth loss.
Cosmetic issues can affect your mental health and self esteem as well as your physical health, which is why they receive a high priority. We want your smile to be at its best, and we will work with you to determine the best and fastest way to achieve the desired results.
