Information For Patients
My first visit.
Thank you for choosing TriState Family Dental Centers! We look forward to meeting you, and creating an individualized plan that works for you. During your initial appointment we will take the time necessary to get to know you and your dental wants and needs. The initial appointment typically takes a little over an hour.
Our Patient Coordinator will take a few minutes to get x-rays of all of your teeth so we can establish a dental record that includes the tools necessary for diagnosis and treatment. Then, she will perform a preliminary evaluation which includes a visual exam and, if necessary, photos of your teeth. That way, you can see what the doctor sees!
Once the Patient Coordinator has completed her preliminary evaluation, you will meet your new dentist! Your dentist will review the preliminary findings, talk to you about your wants and needs then create a treatment plan. Once the doctor has completed your examination, the Patient Coordinator will go over any recommended treatment and discuss insurance coverage if necessary. Then, she will schedule an appointment for you to have your teeth cleaned or begin necessary treatment, depending on your individual needs.
Financing & Insurance
At TriState Family Dental Centers we accept most major insurance plans and will gladly file your dental insurance claims for you. We will make every effort to obtain a summary of benefits from your insurance company and only ask insurance patients to pay their estimated portion at the time of service. However, regardless of insurance coverage, patients are ultimately responsible for any charges incurred.
