Your Initial Visit

Your initial visit may be related to a specific problem or you may be seeking a comprehensive exam. Some people currently have minimal dental needs and are looking for an office that recognizes and respects that reality. However, our needs change with time, so it’s important to have an established relationship with an office you feel comfortable growing with. Some people have complex and unresolved, ongoing issues that they need to solve but have not found the right office to help them through the process. Knowing that your dental team is competent and compassionate can make the difference between being overwhelmed and being confident that you’ve made good decisions.

Becoming a new patient at Northport Family Dental is easier than you think. You can request an appointment online or preferably call one of us directly. Based on this call, you’ll soon realize that you are more comfortable with your decision than you thought you would be. Please take advantage of our online Contact and Appointment Request. Our printable forms are available to download as well as additional information pertaining to your first visit . We would rather enjoy speaking with you when you arrive more than watching you fill out forms in the office.

Your good oral health is a valuable asset, and finances shouldn't get in the way of the decisions you make about your dental care. We do everything we can to make it easy for you and your family to receive high quality dental treatments in as convenient a manner as possible. In addition to the insurance and financial options listed below, we're pleased to tell you that we will also work with you to develop a phased treatment plan to offer you more financial flexibility.

 

Insurance

About half of our patients have some form of dental insurance. Most people have a basic understanding that they have some form of coverage but don’t really understand the role their insurance plays in their ongoing dental health needs. At Northport Family Dental, we're here to interpret your insurance plan design, and acting as your advocate, enabling you to obtain maximum allowable benefits for services rendered.

On your behalf, we’ll be happy to obtain the coverage details of your plan before we start. Knowing benefits available relative to proposed treatment allows us to accurately estimate any costs that would be your responsibility.  We are also happy to file your insurance claims for maximum reimbursement promptly and at no charge to you.

At Northport Family Dental, we accept assignment of anticipated insurance benefits as partial payment toward the total fee for treatment. We do ask that the patient portion be paid as per a financial agreement between you and our office at the time of service. Accepting assignment is available only to patients who respect prior agreements.

Although Northport Family Dental is not an insurance-driven practice we recognize that affordability is often an important factor in your decision making . Our treatment recommendations are based on what we feel best meets your needs and the goals you set for yourself. We can interpret your plan and make you aware of its limitations and exclusions. A thorough understanding of what your insurance benefits are may impact how we sequence your treatment.  Proper sequencing can often result in a higher overall insurance reimbursement. Finite benefit maximums and plan exclusions should not, however alter your treatment goals and your health. We need to be both creative and resolute.

 Listed below are insurances for which we commonly file claims. If you don’t see your insurance plan listed here, please call and we'll help determine available benefits.

Aetna - Cigna - Delta - Empire - Fitzharris - Guardian - Healthplex - JJ Stanis - MetLife - Newman - United Concordia - United Healthcare

If you have questions about our policy regarding insurance, please give our Northport dental office a call. Understanding the ins and outs of insurance can be complicated in any case, and we’re here to make sure all your questions are answered fully.

Payment Options

Many of our patients do not have dental insurance. A few have flex plans through their employer, but most pay out-of-pocket for our services that keep them healthy and smiling.

At Northport Family Dental, if you're uninsured, you don't have to worry about compromising your oral health due to budgetary limitations. We will work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs and satisfies your goals as well as prioritizing treatment into a logical sequence that fits your needs. Depending on your priorities, we may choose to complete your treatment in a short period of time or extend it out over a longer period so we stay in line with your  budget.

We're also pleased to offer our patients the convenience of flexible payments as well as interest-free CareCredit financing. We can discuss all your options during your preliminary consultation. Our team will work with you in every way possible to see that you get the important dental treatments you need without having to worry about finding ways to pay for it.

Knowing the cost of treatment beforehand is important. Knowing that you are having that treatment provided in the right office and by the right doctors and supporting team members; priceless.

We are happy to accept cash, checks, all major credit cards as well as digital wallet services such as Apple Pay and Android Pay.  

CareCredit

If you'd like to spread your payments out into convenient monthly payments, please ask us about interest-free CareCredit financing. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that provides you with a way to finance your dental treatment, vision care, and other healthcare needs. Let our receptionist know you’re interested, and we’ll be happy to help you apply for CareCredit interest-free financing.
