Complete Dental Examination
Your first appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Young. Your initial exam is different than the periodic exams you receive after each hygiene visit.  Dr. Young is interested in getting to know you and listen to any concerns you may have.  Your initial exam is comprehensive in order to gather baseline information about your oral health.  We will review your past and present dental and medical history.  A personalized decision will be made as to which radiographs are appropriate.  She will review these films with you and perform a complete exam which includes:

  • head and neck exam
  • palpating the muscles you use for jaw movement
  • palpating head and neck lymph nodes
  • evaluating your jaw joint (TMJ)
  • intra and extra oral cancer screening
  • examining and recording your gum health and bone support
  • examine your existing dental restorations and evaluating bite and wear patterns

Baseline information will all be entered into your chart for future reference and any treatment or recommendations will be discussed.  Dr. Young's goal is to educate you so that you take appropriate care of your teeth but if treatment is needed she can work with you to achieve esthetics, function and comfort.  Intraoral photos may be taken if needed.  If your case is more complex Dr. Young may re-appoint you for study models, photos and more time for consultation.  Dr. Young feels that complete dental examinations should be done once every 5 years.

Accepted Insurance Carriers
Our practice accepts most dental insurance programs. We are a Delta Dental Premier and WEA provider. Insurance companies can be challenging to understand and our staff will gather as much information possible to help you understand what type of coverage you have prior to your dental appointment. To help us determine your benefit, have your insurance card handy when you call to schedule. Please bring your card to your first appointment.

Insurance and Billing
Once treatment has started, we will file your insurance claim as a courtesy to you.  It is important for you to understand that your dental insurance is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. If you have concerns on the type of coverage, it is best to talk with your employer. Our Financial Coordinator will estimate to the best of our ability the rate of reimbursement.  You will be responsible for all amounts not covered by the insurance carrier.  All estimated co-pays and deductibles are due at the time services are rendered.

Payment Options
It is our mission to provide you with affordable, high-quality dental care that fits your budget. We can work with you on payment options that include: cash, check, MasterCard and Visa. Care Credit is an interest-free or low-interest payment option that may be applied for.
