We are always eager to welcome new patients to New Haven Dental Group, whether they are young, old, or somewhere in the middle. To make sure you are prepared for your first visit, we recommend that you take a moment to read through the information below. We want you to feel welcomed and comfortable right from the beginning, so do not hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you in person and helping your entire family achieve improved oral health.
After our front desk team greets you, a member of our staff will escort you to the back, where they will begin the appointment by taking a few intraoral photos and X-rays of your mouth. You will then meet your dentist, who will spend a few minutes talking with you so they can learn about your dental and medical history and your oral health goals. Next, they will perform a comprehensive exam. If time allows, you will also receive a cleaning from one of our dental hygienists. Before you leave, your dentist will go over your personalized treatment plan and encourage you to schedule your next visit, whether it is just for another checkup or restorative procedure.
New Haven Dental Group welcomes almost all forms of dental insurance, and we aim to make the process of maximizing your benefits easy and stress-fee. Kathy, our insurance and financing coordinator, will happily answer any questions you might have. She will even be able to estimate how much you will have to pay out-of-pocket for any given treatment. We strive to make our estimates as accurate as possible, but with policies continually changing, we are sometimes off by a little. We will even file insurance claims on your behalf so you do not have to stress about a bunch of paperwork.
We are currently in-network with plans from the following providers:
Even if you do not see your provider on the list, we may still be able to accept your plan and help you get the most out of your dental insurance benefits. Give us a call to learn more.
Please keep in mind that if your insurance company does not pay its share within 60 days after your treatment, you will be responsible for the remaining balance. We will give you plenty of notice if this occurs so you will not have to deal with any unpleasant surprises.
