Our team attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience when time is available. Younger children (under five years) should be seen in the early morning when they are fresher and can be given more time for their comfort. School children that have many needs may benefit from early appointments as well. Dental appointments should be considered an excused absence and we are always happy to provide a school excuse. With regular dental care, absences from school can be avoided.
Appointment times are reserved exclusively for each patient and we ask that you notify our office at least 48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment time if you are unable to keep your appointment. With this courtesy, another patient who needs our care can be scheduled if sufficient time is given. We recognize that there can be unexpected events, but do appreciate your assistance.
Patient privacy concerns
We recognize that each child responds differently to unique environments. We invite you to stay with your child for the first visit, but some children enjoy the independence of coming to the dental chair by themselves and building a relationship with our staff one-on-one. For the safety and privacy of all patients, children not being treated should remain in the reception room with a supervising adult.
Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided. We will work hard to provide a treatment plan that fits your family’s schedule and budget that also provides your child the best care possible. We accept cash, debit cards, and most major credit cards.
If we have received all of your insurance information on the day of the appointment, we will be happy to file your claim for you. We are in network with many PPO dental plans.
Please understand that your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. Your choices in treatment may not always coincide with your insurance benefits. Your choice in care is a decision that you wll have to make after weighing all risks, benefits, and alternatives.
If you have questions regarding your insurance benefits, please call our office directly to discuss your concerns.
We are proud to serve as much of our community as possible. We currently accept the following AHCCCS plans: Care First, Mercy Care, UFC, UHC, APIPA, CRS, CMDP, and AIHP. Please call us to verify your plan's dental benefits.
