Dental Patient Information – Waverly, IA
Welcome to Smiley Family Dentistry
Whether you’re new to our dental office or you’ve been visiting us for years, we’re glad to have you in our dental family. We hope to exceed your expectations and give you a positive dental experience that changes the way you view oral health. Below you’ll find useful information that can help you as you prepare what you’ll need for your appointment. If you have any questions about your appointment or the information below, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. We’ll be happy to help!
Your First Visit
Plan on your first visit taking about an hour to an hour and a half to complete. When you arrive, we’ll have you fill out paperwork and give us your insurance information, and then we’ll call you back and take X-rays. Then, Dr. Smiley will get to know you and your smile goals. He’ll evaluate your gums, teeth, and other oral structures and review any concerning findings. Then, we’ll perform a thorough dental cleaning to remove plaque buildup.
If you have dental insurance, then you have an opportunity to save significant money on your dental care with us at Smiley Family Dentistry. Although we accept most dental insurance plans, we are in-network with Delta Dental insurance only. Even if we are out-of-network with your insurance, we are happy to file claims with your company on your behalf, sparing you the headache and stress of having to do it yourself.
Paying for some procedures in one lump sum can easily overwhelm anyone’s budget, which is why we also offer help in applying for CareCredit. This trusted company allows you to divide the cost into smaller monthly payments—all at little or even no interest. If you’re looking for a more wallet-friendly way to pay for your dental treatment, just give our team a call. We can walk you through the application process and put any procedure within your reach.
Are you preparing for your first visit to our Waverly dental office? We look forward to serving you and getting to know you. Before arriving for your first appointment, we hope you’ll take a moment to download and complete our new patient forms. Completing your forms before you arrive streamlines the check-in process, and results in a shorter wait.
