Your First Visit
If you’re brand new to Chambers Family Dentistry, we’d like to take the opportunity to welcome you to our Annapolis, MD dental office. Our caring dentists and friendly dental team can’t wait to get to know you and your family.
At your first appointment, we’ll greet you warmly, introduce you to available team members, and answer any questions you may have. Then, we’ll complete a thorough examination and teeth cleaning. Before you leave, one of our dentists will discuss any concerns we’ve discovered. We’ll work with you to fully understand your current state of oral health, and then, your dentist will explain potential treatment options. Before you leave, we’ll develop a plan for your ongoing oral health that will help you maintain your healthiest smile. We are happy to offer a block of appointments to treat your whole family on the same day for maximum convenience.
New Patient Forms
Before your first appointment, we encourage you to complete our new patient forms online. This information is essential to our ability to provide the safest, most reliable, personalized dentistry services from your very first visit. Rather than providing this information in our dental office where you may not have easy access to necessary documentation, many of our patients find it much more convenient to prepare these documents in advance. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our team. We’ll be happy to help. You can also fill in your forms at the dental office, but please allow at least fifteen extra minutes.
Dental Office Policy
Good dentistry that functions and looks great is an investment in your quality of life. There are not too many things in life that allow such a wonderful return on your investment as a pleasing smile and comfortable chewing for your lifetime. Every situation and patient is unique, and we like to create priorities that are based on the patients’ needs and desires.
There are several creative ways in which we can stage a patient’s care and ultimately provide the foundation for quality dental care as the result. We feel that the initial examination is the cornerstone to communicating the patient’s concerns as well as gathering information for our planning of care. Our efforts are to listen to and educate our patients, ultimately, escorting them through their decisions with understanding and compassion. It is very important to make clear a patient’s options for care as well as payment, allowing for quality, long-lasting dentistry. This is our daily focus because we truly care about the health and well-being of our patients.
We know how important dental insurance can be when it comes to making dental care affordable for all of our patients. We are happy to process and file claims with your dental insurance provider. Additionally, we have years of experience with insurance plans, so if you’d like help reviewing your policy, or if you have questions about coverage, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’ll do our best to provide an explanation of any unclear areas in the policy and offer an estimate of any out-of-pocket costs associated with your care.
We do not accept responsibility for the outcome of the transaction. By having our dental office process your insurance forms, it is important that you understand this does not eliminate your financial obligation for your treatment. We require you to pay your co-payment, which is the amount not covered by your insurance company, at the time treatment is initiated. It is important to understand the contract regarding your insurance company is between you, your employer, and your insurance company.
Payment Methods and Financing
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We offer incentives for payment on large cases when paid upfront by cash or check if you do not have insurance. Large cases include multiple procedures and extensive care. Payment must be made in full in order to receive the discount. If you have questions, please contact us to discuss your concerns.
