At Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry, our goal is to make going to the dentist a positive, even fun experience. One way we accomplish this is by making the appointment run as seamlessly and smoothly as possible, including the paperwork and payment portions. Before your child’s next appointment with us, take some time to review the information below. It can help you know what you can expect and be better prepared for a successful dental visit.
If you and your child are coming to our dental office for the first time, we want to give you a warm welcome. When you arrive, our front desk staff will greet you both and help you feel right at home. In fact, everyone in the dental office will go above and beyond to create a safe, comfortable atmosphere for your child. When we call them back, we will take digital X-rays of your child’s teeth so that Dr. Patrick can make sure that no problems lurk under the gum surface. Then, he and the rest of our team will take a few minutes to get acquainted with your child, perform a quick and gentle comprehensive exam, and explain our findings. By the end of their appointment, your child may ask you, “When can we go back to the dentist?”
If your child is covered through dental insurance, then you could save money on their oral care with us at Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry. We accept basically all PPO plans and can file claims for you, sparing you the stress and confusion that often come with insurance paperwork. If you need help understanding your plan’s coverage, we can certainly lend a hand and give you tips for getting the most out of your benefits.
When you have so many things on your plate, paying for dental treatment all at one time can put an uncomfortable pinch on your wallet. At Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry, we accept payment through CareCredit, a trusted financing company. Our team can help you apply for low-interest financing, breaking up the cost into more feasible monthly payments. Through this option, you can easily fit your child’s oral care into your budget.
Before we can start your child’s appointment, we need you to complete some paperwork about your child, including medical and dental history, insurance information, and more. Although you could wait until you are sitting in our waiting room to fill these forms out, you can save some time, download them at the link below, and prepare them in advance. That way, your child won’t have to spend any extra time waiting for their visit to begin.
