DENTAL INSURANCE AND PAYMENT OPTIONS :
Dental insurance is a wonderful benefit. If you have dental insurance, we will be happy to complete your insurance and mail the form to the insurance company for you. We will estimate the reimbursement from your insurance company and request that you pay us the difference at the time of the visit. Since dental insurance companies vary widely in the services they will cover and the reimbursement for those services, be aware that you are personally responsible for all services rendered. We accept all major credit or debit cards as well as cash or checks.
For those with more extensive treatment needs, several options are available. Often treatment can be completed in stages or “phased” to more easily fit the cost of treatment into a monthly budget. Without compromising the quality of care, the patient’s treatment is divided into “phases” that are completed at a time interval that fits with their monthly budget. Financing is also available through CareCredit. CareCredit offers no interest and low monthly payment options. Applications are available in our office, and approval can be completed online or over the phone. Please visit their web site for more information at www.carecredit.com.
Our fees are determined by the care, skill and experience of Dr. Winter, Ardyth, Maria, Joan, Meirav and Ilana; and are based on the services and time involved.
WE BELIEVE THAT FINE DENTISTRY IS AVAILABLE TO ALL THOSE WHO FEEL THAT HEALTH IS A PRIORITY IN THEIR LIFE WORTH INVESTING IN.

THE EXAM :
The comprehensive examination is a process of discovery, which requires your help and input. While the entire comprehensive evaluation may take place over multiple visits, rest assured, any urgent need or immediate concern will be addressed first before completing the entire evaluation.
Begins by developing an understanding of your needs and desires concerning your health. We discuss your medical and dental histories, and learn about your past
experiences with dentistry. Valuable insights are gained as you share with us how you see your present level of health, your hopes, expectations and goals of
our office. In order to reach a complete understanding of your present state of health, we gather data about your chewing muscles, your jaw joints (TMJ), your bite (occlusion) and how all three components work together. The health of your gums, supporting bone (periodontium) and soft tissues are important parts of
the process. We look for signs of disease, oral cancer and injury during this part of the examination. Finally, a complete assessment of the health of each individual tooth, and the condition of any restorations (fillings of all types, crowns, and dentures) are recorded.
During our examination, we will recommend appropriate x-rays, digital photographs and diagnostic impressions of your upper and lower teeth. Prior to our discussion
of our findings we will take the time to review what is possible for you. We will take time to study all of the gathered information and formulate a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and goals.
After your co-discovery examination, you will be invited to discuss our findings and how best to care for you, meeting your goals and objectives. You will have the
opportunity to ask questions and learn.
WE BELIEVE YOU KNOW BEST WHAT YOU FEEL IN YOUR OWN MOUTH.
