FAQ

Please Click a Question to Learn More


Where is your office located?

We are located within one block of Brookwood Hospital. See our map for details.

What are your office hours?

Our office hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:50 to 4:30. We are at lunch from 12:00 till 1:00. When we take our last patient is a function of what service is needed for that patient. We are open some Fridays. If you need a Friday appointment, it is best to call and find out what Fridays we have scheduled in the future.

What forms do I need to complete before my visit?

New patients are requested to printout the first four forms and have them filled out and signed when they arrive at our office.  It will be extremely helpful if new patients would fill them out ahead of time and fax them to our office (871-6680), especially if they have any particular questions regarding insurance coverage. Also, please note that information about your previous dentist, his telephone number, and date of last visit are very important.

The Medical History Update form needs to be printed out and filled in if it has been over a year since you have been in our office.

What payment options do you offer?

We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards. For deferred payment options, we recommend CareCredit, a respected financial company that serves patients and the healthcare industry.

What insurance do you accept? Will you file insurance?

We are preferred providers for MetLife, Delta, Guardian, Southland, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. If your dental insurance plan allows out of network provider care, you may receive some compensation for fees incurred at our office. For your convenience, we will file the required paperwork with your insurance company. Patients are responsible for the balance on their accounts when insurance does not pay.

Do you treat children?

Yes, we love to see children as new patients.  However, we do sometimes refer children to one of the three pedodontists (children’s dentist) in our building.  This referral is made most frequently if we, or the parent, feels that the child will do better in a more “child friendly atmosphere”.  Sometimes this atmosphere is the best thing for the very young new patient, especially if the child needs a lot of treatment or if the child is “challenging” in any area.  Dr.s Angel Rohner, Billy Bishop, and Michael Keller are the pedodontists in our building and are always close by if that referral is needed.

Do you offer teeth bleaching?

Yes, we offer at-home teeth bleaching with Nite White, a respected product in the dental industry. Learn more about Nite White on our Services page.
