Thank You for Choosing Our Practice
Every patient is unique, and we are committed to providing you with high quality, state-of-the-art periodontal and implant care based on your individual needs. Above all else, we want to make your visit to our office a pleasant experience.
What to Bring on Your First Visit
If you receive or download our welcome packet prior to your first visit to our office, please bring the completed forms with you to your appointment. Otherwise, please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to complete the medical/dental health questionnaire and the patient information form. If you have a complicated health history, please mail it to our office so that we might review it in advance. Be sure to list all medications with dosages and any natural supplements, attaching an extra sheet of paper if necessary.
Also, bring your insurance cards for us to copy. If your restorative dentist has given you a written referral or x-rays, please remember to bring them with you to your appointment.
What to Expect on Your First Visit
Your first visit will include the following:
- Review of your complete dental and medical history
- Review of your dental x-rays and/or taking new x-rays as required
- Oral and soft tissue exam
- Occlusion and bite check
After a thorough exam, Dr. Philip Fava will discuss his findings and answer any questions you may have about treatment. Our goal is to help you come to an informed decision regarding care.
If you have insurance, our knowledgeable staff will work with you to obtain reimbursement from your insurance. Please understand that you are responsible for payment of all services.
Our goal is to ensure you receive the maximum allowable benefits given by your insurance plan. Please bring your insurance card or papers on the first visit and we will file your insurance for you.
Our financial staff will work with you to ensure any portion of treatment not covered by insurance is affordable. We accept cash, check, most major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Discover) as well as outside financing through Care Credit. The guidelines for acceptance by Care Credit are strictly followed. You can visit their website for more detailed information.
