To make you stay with us enjoyable, we favor a patient-friendly approach to cosmetic, implant, and sedation dentistry. Our highly trained staff will go the extra mile to make you feel at ease. Welcoming and approachable, our dentists, office staff, hygienists, and assistants are on-hand to answer any questions you might have and to walk you through each step of your treatment. Rest assured that when you are at Center for Dentistry, you will be in the hands of caring professionals.
Your initial consultation at Center for Dentistry will include a detailed explanation of your diagnosis and treatment options from our dentists. Our doctors are committed to helping patients understand their oral health needs. Patients should bring any surgical referrals and X-rays they have, a list of current medications, and completed dental or health insurance forms to their initial consultation. Please inform our staff of any existing medical conditions before receiving treatment.
Fees incurred for dental services are due in full when services are rendered. For your convenience we accept Cash, Checks, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. We are also a participating provider for Care Credit®, our financing partner, which allows you to meet your financial responsibility at the time of service. You can also use our secure server to pay online.
We understand that last minute changes in your schedule may be unavoidable and we will try to accommodate those changes as best we can. Please understand that when we make an appointment we are setting aside enough time to do our best work and that each appointment is for only one patient. We do not overbook expecting some of our patients to not show for their appointments. Therefore, a broken appointment without adequate notice results in wasted time for us, adding to the cost of providing care for all our patients.
If you have an unavoidable conflict and cannot give 24 hr notice to change the
appointment, there will be no charge, however, before making your next
appointment, a $75 fee will be applied. If you come to your next appointment,
the $75 fee will be applied toward the procedure you're having that day, therefore there is no extra charge. Alternately, if you have a second, subsequent cancellation for the same appointment, you will incur a fee of 1/3 the scheduled amount of treatment and lose the initial $75 fee. A third subsequent cancellation of the same appointment will require prepayment of the entire fee prior to rescheduling and the fee forfeited if the appointment is not kept.
24-hour notice will give us time, usually, to fill in the appointment and there will be no broken appointment fee. We will work with you to try to schedule times that are best for you. Patients who habitually reschedule for inadequate reason will be referred to an office which does not work by appointment or which can accommodate an unpredictable schedule.
