Patient Info

INITIAL CONSULTATION

We believe that every patient deserves the highest quality care and optimal treatment results.   This requires an uncompromising commitment to thoroughly evaluating each individual situation and developing a personalized treatment plan to meet each patient’s unique needs and desires.  Your dentist has come to rely on this commitment, which is why you have been referred to our practice.

When you trust us to help you achieve the level of oral health you desire, you will have our undivided time and attention during the consultation, diagnosis, and treatment planning process – and throughout the entire treatment sequence.  We want you to feel well informed when you make decisions about your health and comfortable when you visit our office.

The comprehensive evaluation will include:
 
  • A review of your dental and medical history.
  • An oral exam - Dr. Sinks will perform an assessment of your teeth and gums.
  • Evaluation of necessary x-rays. If the required x-rays are not available, they will be taken during your evaluation.
  • Clinical photographs of your teeth.
  • Full mouth dental probing or periodontal charting
  • Evaluation and review of the risk factors for periodontal disease.
  • A complete oral cancer screening
  • Preliminary discussion of your dental needs.

Dr. Sinks works in close collaboration with your referring dentist to develop the ideal treatment plan for your unique needs. Following your consultation, a detailed written report and a copy of any x-rays taken in our office will be sent to your dentist and a treatment planning discussion will be scheduled.

FINANCIAL OPTIONS

Dr. Sinks and our staff work as a team, whose primary goal is to provide you with the finest, leading edge periodontal and dental implant procedures available today.  We are concerned about you and your dental care and make every effort to ensure that you will be treated in the most responsible manner, with kindness and understanding.  In order to assist you with your investment in your dental health, we have outlined our financial options.
 
We ask all of our patients to take care of their fees on, or before, the day of their treatment.  For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover). 
 
We offer a 5% discount for payment in full at the time of your procedure if payment is made by cash, cashier's check, or money order.  This discount does not apply to exams or any hygiene appointments, however.
 
If you wish to make extended payments, we participate with Care Credit.  Care Credit is a dental credit card company that, after an application process, may extend credit, over time, for your treatment needs with a lower interest rate than most other credit cards companies offer. www.carecredit.com

Our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork as a courtesy to you. We will file all necessary paperwork and can file for a pre-treatment estimate at your request prior to beginning any treatment.  

Please let us know if you have any questions about your insurance coverage, and let us know how we can help to make your entire dental experience a pleasant one.
