First Time Visits
Call 503.295.7801 to schedule an appointment.
Walk, bike, or drive and park in our lot.
Check in with our receptionist. She will give you a few forms to fill out.
Have your x-rays updated if you are due. If you have current x-rays at another office, let us know. We can have them transferred for you before your appointment.
Next you’ll meet the dentist. He or she will do an exam, discuss your dental condition, and present a plan to ensure your teeth are healthy.
Before your first visit, you may download, print, and fill out our Patient Health History form. This will help ensure a speedy check-in. If you are not able to print our form, please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment, or ask us to mail a form to your home.
If you have had a full-mouth set of dental x-rays taken within the last three years, you may bring a copy with you. Your previous dentist will be able to provide these to you. If you need help getting these transferred, let us know.
If you carry dental insurance, please bring your dental insurance card and ID with you to your first appointment. If you don’t have insurance, it’s no problem. Cash or check payments can be made and are eligible for a 5% discount. Visa and Master Card are also accepted, but are not eligible for discount.
Changing Your Scheduled Appointment
If you find the need to change your scheduled appointment, please allow 2 working-days notice. This helps us to maintain a streamlined and on-time schedule.
Dental services are to be paid at each appointment with cash, check, credit card, or dental financing we have available. As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance directly for services provided. Estimated co-payments and deductibles not covered by your insurance carrier are requested at the time of service.
We are committed to providing you with the highest quality dental care and up-to-date information so that you may fully participate in maintaining the best possible oral health. Our financial policy is intended to facilitate excellent service to you while minimizing our administrative costs.
