New Patient Forms
When you choose The Center for Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry, we want you to be comfortable and confident that the care you receive will meet and exceed your dental expectations.
All new patients begin their first appointment with an extensive discussion with one of our doctors to understand your expectations and desired results, both of which are central to our success. The Center for Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry will provide you with state of the art technology and personal attention fully surpassing the status quo. Our modern facility, detail-oriented team members, and practice-wide dedication to continuing education are components that result in the highest quality dental care.
If you are a new patient, we will conduct a thorough dental history and comprehensive oral exam before determining what services you are in need of. We evaluate the relationships between the teeth, temporomandibular joints, and associated face, head, and neck muscles.
Here at CAID, we aim to care for you as we would for our own. This includes helping you and your family understand your dental coverage so that we can meet your dental needs.
We have noticed that there are many misconceptions about dental insurance, so here are three things we always like to make our patients aware of regarding their coverage:
1. Unfortunately, no insurance pays 100% of all dental procedures.
Dental insurance is generally meant to be an aid in receiving dental care, and the majority of plans only cover between 50%-80% of the average total fee. Some cover more, some cover less. The percentage paid is usually determined by how much you or your employer has paid for coverage or the type of contract your employer has set up with the insurance company.
2. Your dental insurance benefits and resulting fees are not determined by our office.
We wish they were! Insurance companies set their own schedules, each company uses a different set of fees, and these fees may widely vary. This means that your neighbor may be charged a different rate for your filling than yours, simply because his or her insurance company/plan is different. Please understand that our staff has no control over the fees your insurance plan charges for our services. It is entirely dependent upon your insurance company, your insurance plan, and most times – your employer.
3. Our office is considered out of network for insurance companies.
Our policy is that you will pay us directly for the services rendered at the time of the appointment. As a courtesy to our patients, we will submit the claim to your insurance company for reimbursement directly to you. Please remember, even if you have dental insurance, you are responsible for payment of your account and understanding your policy, coverage, and reimbursement plan.
