New Dental Patient Information – Glenmont, NY
Personable, Family-Friendly Dental Care
If you’re just now learning about Glenmont Dental, we want to welcome you to our dental office and hope you’ll enjoy your time with us. To get started as a brand-new patient, we encourage you to take a brief look at our new patient page, which is packed with helpful information on how to prepare for your appointment. This includes sections on what your first visit will look like, financing options, patient forms and more.
Your First Visit
If you call our dental office directly, you’ll speak with our new patient coordinator, who is happy to look over your dental insurance plan as well as set expectations for your first visit. You’ll be asked to fill out new patient forms at home, then send it over to us online. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll capture X-rays and introduce you to Dr. Hammond, who performs a detailed oral exam. If further treatment is needed, you’ll have a chance to go over your plan with our treatment coordinator so you can get a better idea of your costs as well as get scheduled for a future visit.
When you’re at the dentist, it’s safe to assume you’re not exactly interested in filling out a bunch of forms before you can see someone. For that reason, we recommend that you download, print, complete, and bring your forms to the dental office ahead of your appointment. That way, you can expedite the check-in process during your initial visit. If you’d like, you can even fill out your forms and send them to us online for added convenience.
Using a dental insurance plan can not only make your out-of-pocket costs lower, but your dental appointments more predictable. Having a plan to rely on makes it easier to complete routine checkups essential to your long-term oral health. Our dental office is currently in-network with Delta Dental and accepts many dental insurance plans at this time. Our team is knowledgeable on many insurance policies and will gladly speak with you directly to ensure your benefits are being maximized to the fullest.
If you don’t have a dental insurance plan at this time or your plan’s benefits didn’t provide you with the coverage you were expecting, third-party financing options can make your dental care more affordable. One option we often recommend is Sunbit Financing, a third-party financing solution that allows you to make payments on treatments over an extended period of time, rather than in one lump sum. You can even expect little to no interest on these payments, so you don’t have to sacrifice your oral health simply because of costs.
