New Bedford Dental Patient Information
Have you recently scheduled a first appointment at Clear Coast Dental for yourself or a family member? That’s great news! Our doctors and team members can’t wait to get started on helping you enjoy the happier, healthier smile you deserve. Before you arrive, keep reading below to learn more about what to expect – and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
Your First Visit
When you schedule an initial appointment at Clear Coast Dental, our first priority is getting to know you as our newest patient. Our dentists spend a lot of time (an hour or more!) simply listening to the dental-related goals and concerns you have and providing valuable education regarding potential treatment options. After completing a comprehensive examination that includes digital X-rays and photographs, we’ll develop a list of priorities together and place the most importance on what you want – it’s really that simple.
Dental Insurance Accepted
We accept nearly all insurance plans in our office and our team is here to help navigate any insurance questions that you might have. At your appointment, we always make sure that you know exactly what is covered, and we’ll even file the claim on your behalf. If care is not completely covered by insurance, we have a range of financial options to make sure patients get the care they need.
Are you not currently covered by a dental insurance plan? Are you interested in a big treatment plan but can’t afford to pay for it all at once? CareCredit financing can definitely come in handy, then. This trusted third-party company offers several lengths of payment plans, and the shortest ones even come with NO interest to worry about. By being able to break up your cost over several months, enjoying a better, brighter smile with Clear Coast Dental’s help can be smooth sailing.
Dental Membership Plan
Don’t get dental insurance benefits through work? Are you retired, self-employed, or a small business owner? You may think affordable dental care is outside your reach, but there’s another option! At Clear Coast Dental, we offer our in-house membership plan. This is different from insurance in that you are eligible to use your benefits on that same day you join, and there are no claims forms to fill out. It covers the cost of essential preventive services and even provides you with a 10 percent discount for other services like porcelain veneers, as well as a discount for every added member of your family.
