Insurance & Billing
Thank you for choosing Summit Dental to serve your dental needs. We are delighted that you will be joining our family of happy and satisfied patients.
Our practice philosophy is centered on the belief that each patient is unique and has individual needs and concerns. We are committed to involving you in your course of treatment and will work closely with you to help you understand all aspects of your oral health and any treatment recommendations that may be made. We are very proud of the care we provide to our patients and strive to impart an exceptional dental experience with each visit.
As a new patient, your initial appointment will a thorough oral evaluation by Dr. Yoshida, and possibly an appointment with a hygienist. This evaluation will include a comprehensive examination to screen for oral cancer, gum disease, cavities, bite problems, jaw joint problems and broken or damaged teeth. Dr. Yoshida will evaluate any existing dental work and dental appliances you currently have, and talk with you about your dental concerns. If recent X-rays are not available to bring to this visit, we will recommend X-rays be taken at this appointment. This is critical for a complete and thorough diagnosis of your condition. After the examination, we will discuss any findings and recommended treatment. You can expect to spend 1 hour for the exam. If you have an appointment with the hygienist, you will spend about 1 hour with her as well.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time so we can gather all the necessary information for your visit with us.
We look forward to meeting you at your visit. If there is anything that we can do to enhance your experience in our office or if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. Thank you, again, for choosing us as your partner in optimizing your oral health.
