Your First Visit at Dentistry By Design
All of your new patient paperwork is available online for you to complete prior to your first visit with us. Once you arrive, we’ll get you something to drink and review any necessary information, such as getting a copy of your insurance card. This new dental patient information is important to the process of your first visit.
Once we’re ready to get started, one of our assistants will escort you to one of our private examination rooms, where Dr. Tiner will check in with you to discuss any specific concerns that you may have. Depending on the nature of your visit, we may also recommend a series of x-rays or a 3D cone beam scan to gather the information needed to make a decision about your care plan. In some cases, we may also recommend a preventive cleaning at the same visit.
If you’re in pain or have a specific problem, please call our office immediately, as same-day appointments are available.
Do you take my insurance?
As a courtesy, we’re happy to file claims on behalf of every patient, whether or not we are a part of your particular network. Please call our office to discuss your particular carrier if you have any questions. Many of our patients carry plans through companies like Aetna, Delta Dental, Cigna, and individual carriers. Visit our dental service financing page to learn more and verify your insurance with us.
Are you accepting new dental patient information?
Absolutely. New patients are always welcome. We offer dental services for patients of all ages, including young children. Same day appointments are also available in most cases.
Am I a candidate for implants?
Our cone beam 3D CT scanner allows Dr. Tiner to provide comprehensive dental implants to non-traditional patients who may have been denied the service elsewhere. The highly accurate guidance gained from 3D imaging makes your process as successful as possible.
When can you get me in?
Early morning hours make it easy for you to fit a dental visit in before work or school during the week. We also offer same day and next day appointments!
Same day emergency?
If you’re currently experiencing a dental emergency, please call our Richardson office immediately. We will always fit you in as quickly as possible – the very same day. With your new dental patient information, we can quickly process your paperwork and help you receive dental care quickly. To learn more, contact us today at 972.231.3013.
