Patient Resources

Thoughtful. Professional. World-class.

Get world-class dental care from our thoughtful, professional team. We want to be your lifetime dentist, whether you need specific improvements made to your smile, prefer the relaxation of sedation dentistry, or just a home for regular cleanings, we are eager to serve you.

To save a little time at your appointment, we offer patient forms that you can download, print, and fill out at home. Though, feel free to arrive 15 minutes early if you’re unable to fill out forms in advance.

Many people who’ve had bad experiences with dentistry in the past, are hesitant to return to a dentist’s office. We would relish the opportunity to change your opinion of dentists and dental care.

Patient Forms

For your convenience, most patient forms are available in PDF. To expedite your visit, print and fill out these forms at home. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call our office at 607-722-5555.

FAQs

How often should I have a checkup or cleaning?

The ADA recommends that most people see a dentist 3 times each year, but your hygienist can help you understand what interval is needed to keep your mouth healthy. We can schedule your subsequent appointment before you leave, and send you a reminder in the mail so you don’t forget your next visit.

Do you accept my insurance?

The vast majority of dental insurance allows you to choose your own care provider. We would be happy to look up your specific insurance provider by your employer’s name to be sure. We do our best to maximize your benefits, filling out forms for you, and if your claim is denied we are happy to help argue your case.

What payment options do you offer?

Nothing could be more important than a healthy smile. To that end, we are ready and able to get you the best treatment regardless of your insurance situation. For your convenience we offer a wide range of payment options and welcome your suggestions.

  • Insurance – Dental insurance comes in all shapes and sizes. We know it can be confusing, but are happy to help you cut through the fog, understand exactly what coverage you hold, uncover any co-pay obligations, and maximize your benefits. If your claim is denied we are happy to help argue your case.
  • Patient Payment – An advanced payment discount of 5 percent will be given when payment is made in full by check, cash, or credit card.
  • Payment Plans – For patients with a limited budget, we can spread appointments and expenses over a period of months or years. We also work in partnership with CareCredit.com to offer an array of financing options.
