Comprehensive New Patient Exam
Choosing the Comprehensive New Patient entry into Stonebriar Smile Design will allow comprehensive diagnosis of your oral health with traditional diagnostic tools. You will be provided with sound recommendations on an approach to optimize your oral health.
In order to reserve your two hour comprehensive new patient appointment, a $150 deposit is required. This fee is non-refundable if you do not notify us of a change in your schedule with a minimum of 48 hours prior to appointment. Verification of your insurance benefits and eligibility prior to your appointment is required in order to help you file a claim. We are considered an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies. Our client’s with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Delta Dental, and United Concordia pay in-full at time of services and take advantage of our cash courtesy discount.
Smile with Heart New Patient Exam
Choosing the Smile with Heart Program to enter the practice of Stonebriar Smile Design will optimize your oral health while working side by side with your health care providers towards prevention of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, strokes, cancers, sleep apnea and other inflammatory disease processes. Together, we will maximize your preventive oral and healthcare potential. Feeling and looking your best creates the edge many of us are searching for in our professional industries.
The Smile with Heart program’s advantage is based on initial oral DNA testing. We utilize diagnostic testing in order to diagnose the presence of periodontal disease pathogens and genetic tendency for the disease before we conclude which cleaning/therapy is appropriate. You are unique and so is your diagnosis. Therapy is customized to your current health status, previous medical history, stress level, family history, and current oral conditions.
The initial additional out-of–pocket costs for diagnostics are valuable tools in the proper diagnosis of periodontal disease, which is highly linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and several other inflammatory diseases. The program is PREVENTION driven. Therefore, we offer our Smile with Heart participants discounts on further preventive services and products.
Our initial appointments are fee-for-service. We cannot predict what your insurance will pay on preventive diagnostic tests. As a courtesy to you, we can file an insurance claim on your behalf to your dental network, and assign the payment to you directly. We are not an in-network provider for any insurance company. The doctors feel overall and dental health standards cannot be achieved by abiding by insurance regulations.
