To understand what to expect, follow the steps below. You’ll find all the practical information that you might need like new patient paperwork, insurance plans accepted, and financing options. You can save time at your first appointment by filling out the paperwork at home and bringing it in!
1. What to Expect
Every day we see new patients leaving their dental visit pleased. At Pleasant Street Dental the new patient experience begins with you, our primary focus. Our comprehensive approach encourages you to play a key role in developing a customized treatment plan unique to your life and oral health goals.
- Review of your oral and overall health including health history
- Obtaining recommended digital radiographs (x-rays) dependent on your individualized needs
- Muscle and TMJ palpation/evaluation
- Careful evaluation and diagnosis of your current periodontal (gum) status
- Extraoral and Intraoral photography for consultation
2. New Patient Forms
Will your new patient experience be pleasant? Absolutely! At Pleasant Street Dental, pleasant is not just part of our name, it is engrained in our guiding philosophies. For your convenience, our patient forms are available below. Let’s spend your first visit solely on you! If you have any questions regarding the forms please do not hesitate to contact us.
3. Accepted Insurance Plans
At Pleasant Street Dental, we prefer to help our patients with all of their insurance paperwork by filing claim forms electronically for you. This is not only for your convenience, but also to allow the insurance companies to begin working on the claim forms immediately. As Delta Dental, Martin’s Point Generation Advantage, and Anthem in-network providers, we will gladly help patients outside of the network process their insurance claims.
4. Available Financing Options
Like many people who receive dental insurance benefits, we’re sure you’ve discovered that they haven’t quite kept up with the cost of today’s dental treatments. Because of this, we offer multiple payment options at Pleasant Street Dental that will allow you to achieve the smile you desire with the flexibility to spread the cost over several months to years.
You can choose within popular interest-free payment plans that have low monthly payments, no up-front costs, and no prepayment penalties. In addition to cash or check payments, you can also make payments with American Express, Visa, Mastercard,or Discover Card.
If you have any questions about our financial options please feel free to call the office and speak directly with our patient coordinators at 207-725-2062.
Rest assured that after your initial diagnostic exam, our doctors sit down with you for a complimentary consult to thoroughly discuss treatment alternatives and phasing of treatment. This way, our patient coordinators can address your budgetary concerns by “phasing” treatment over a given length of time.
