We accept many insurance plans. Once you provide us with the necessary dental insurance information we can verify eligibility and determine an estimate of benefits. When services are rendered you will be asked to pay your estimated co-payment. We will file your dental insurance claim and reconcile payment with your account. While we make every effort to estimate benefits correctly some insurance carriers guidelines are not accurate for the Arnold, MO area and small differences may occur. When this happens you will either be billed or credited for the difference.
The simple answer is in most cases YES. Many times the insurance carrier paperwork discourages members from using “non-participating” dentists. In many cases there is little or no difference in reimbursement. We encourage patients to see the dentist of THEIR choice. At Matrix Dental Group we care for our patients based on the best interest of their oral health regardless of which insurance carrier they may or may not have.
We have been working with young families for many years and this is a very common question. Our personal opinion is to start them at age 3. Certainly home care needs to start much earlier and in the event a parent has questions or sees something that does not look right to them we will see the child at any age. However, starting at age 3 for regular visits has proven to be the most beneficial for our young patients. Think you need a pediatric dentist?
There are many products and procedures available to brighten your smile. Before you purchase any number of the tooth whitening products in the store or online, it is important to understand what is causing your teeth to stain, the risks, as well as the benefits to whitening your teeth. Your first step should be to schedule an examination and cleaning of your teeth. At this time, your dentist or hygienist can review your oral health with you, any medications that you may be taking, as well as make recommendations for any dietary changes or teeth bleaching products or procedures that will work for you.
Generally we can schedule you an appointment within about a week. In the case of an emergency such as severe pain we make every effort to see you the same day. Please remember, don’t wait, if you are having a problem call us as early in the day as possible, this will allow us better opportunity to see that you get the help you need.
