Your First Visit
After being checked in at our front desk, you and/or your child will be escorted back to your treatment room. There, you’ll get to meet the dentist, and they’ll spend a little time chatting with you about what brought you to the office. They’ll then perform a comprehensive oral exam, and afterward, they’ll discuss their observations with you. They’ll recommend any treatments you or your child might need, answer any questions you have, and then you’ll be brought back to the front to schedule your next appointment.
We understand that our patients’ time is limited, which is why we make it a big point to run a very punctual office. Plus, you now have the option to fill out our patient forms ahead of time so we can check you in with little to no wait! You can download them with the link below. Just fill in the appropriate information and bring them with you when you come to see us so we can get your appointment started nice and fast!
If you have dental insurance, you can rest assured that we’ll accept it. The Family Dental Center is happy to work with patients who have traditional PPO dental insurance, Medicaid, CHIP, and Texas STAR. Miriam, our Insurance and Financing Coordinator, will be able to answer any questions about your coverage and can file your claims for you so you can trust that you’re getting every dollar you deserve. Want to know how you can use your specific plan to save at your next appointment? If so, give us a call today.
