Welcome to the La Plata Dental family! We are dedicated to making sure patients receive the best possible dentistry services in a comfortable, state-of-the-art dental practice. If you’ve chosen to trust our team with your family’s oral health and hygiene, we can’t wait to see your smile! If you still need to schedule your first appointment or find out more, don’t hesitate to contact our caring La Plata dentistry team. We’re here to help whenever patients need us most.
When you arrive in our La Plata dentistry practice, you’ll be greeted warmly by a member of our friendly dental team. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have at this time, and if you haven’t already completed your new patient forms prior to arriving in our office, we’ll be happy to help you complete these. Next, we’ll show you around our high tech dental office, explain some of our advanced technologies, and introduce you to team members who aren’t hard at work caring for other patients. We capture diagnostic x-rays and photos that will be used in conjunction with visual and manual dental examination to allow the dentist to accurately diagnose areas of concern. If you’re here for preventive care, we might recommend a cleaning (dental prophylaxis) and a hygienist will gently remove plaque and tartar buildup leaving you with a clean, healthy smile. Finally, you’ll sit down one on one with a dentist to discuss any concerns about your oral health. We’ll partner with you to create a personalized plan for ongoing oral health and hygiene.
Before your visit, we encourage you to complete your new patient information forms at home. We’ve found that patients find this much more convenient than trying to track down all of the necessary information in our waiting room. If you need help completing your forms, please don’t hesitate to call our team. We’ll be happy to help. If you do wish to complete your new patient forms in our office, please allow at least fifteen additional minutes prior to your scheduled treatment time.
We know our patients invest in their dental insurance, and we do our utmost to maximize this financial investment. Our knowledgeable team members put their years of experience in dental insurance to work processing and filing your claims to ensure you receive full coverage from your benefit plan. If you have questions about your individual plan, bring along any policy documents to your appointment. We’ll do our utmost to give you a clear answer. Additionally, we are in-network with the following insurance providers:
At the time of treatment, we ask that patients provide payment for out of pockets costs/co-payments in the form of cash, check, or major credit card. We are also happy to work a third party medical and dental financier called CareCredit. They offer low and no interest payment plans for most patients. You can click the link below to complete preapproval paperwork. We are also happy to help you apply for financing through CareCredit during your appointment.
