Welcome to South Arlington Smiles! Dr. Smith and the rest of our team look forward to greeting you during your first appointment and hope that it’s just the first of many visits in the future. The information on this page will give you an idea of what to expect when you become a patient with us. Please review it carefully before you call to set up your next appointment. Remember that you always have the option of calling us directly to discuss it with a team member.
When you first arrive at our practice, our front desk team will greet you and provide you with any appropriate paperwork. Once said forms are complete, you won’t have to wait long until one of our dental assistants brings you back to the operatory area. During our first checkup, we will take our time discussing your dental/medical history and becoming familiar with your unique smile before we move forward with any sort of treatment recommendations.
You can download new patient forms right here on our website. This paperwork is essential for us to fully understand your situation, and the sooner it’s complete, the sooner your first appointment can truly begin. Filling out the forms ahead of time will shave several minutes off the period you spend in our waiting room. Of course, you can get in touch with our team if you have any questions about how to fill out the forms.
We are in-network with a number of different plans, but we are also open to filing out-of-network claims. Before you set up your next appointment, we recommend that you call our office with your policy information so that you can confirm whether we accept your particular plan as well as review the type of coverage that you can expect to enjoy at our practice. After all, a good insurance plan is often the key to making high quality care affordable for your whole family.
Patients who don’t have insurance may want to explore other financing options. With the link below, you can apply for CareCredit, which allows you to pay for treatment in installments rather than all at once. CareCredit offers a number of different plans, letting you pick one that best matches your budget. Be sure to talk to our team as well so that we can answer any questions about CareCredit for you and help you make the necessary arrangements.
