New Patient Information
At Esplanade Dental Care, new patients are always welcome! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re interested in scheduling an appointment. Before arriving, we do ask that you take the time to read the following information so that you know what to expect. Dr. Albert and Dr. Snow want every patient to feel fully confident in their decision to visit us in Downers Grove, IL.
Your First Visit
Upon arriving, patients will be greeted warmly at the front desk and then escorted back from the waiting room so that we can capture a full set of dental X-rays. During this process, one of our hygienists will enjoy taking the time to get to know you and your reasons for visiting. Dr. Albert or Dr. Snow will then arrive, introduce themselves, and sit down to discuss all of the hygienist’s findings with you. They’ll also be happy to answer any questions you may have.
If the patient is in need of a cleaning, that will be the next step. Finally, the treatment coordinator will bring the patient to our consultation room, where we will discuss any services we deem necessary with you and devise a personalized plan of action. Our goal at the end of the appointment is to have a certain plan in place for future treatment and a brighter future on the horizon for your smile.
For added convenience, new patients can find all of the paperwork they’ll need to complete before their first appointment below. We encourage you to print the files out, fill in your information at home, and bring them to our office for the front desk team. This way, we will be able to start your appointment faster. If you’d prefer to fill them out in-office, please plan on arriving 10 minutes early.
Our team at Esplanade Dental Care is happy to help patients navigate their dental insurance smoothly and without stress. We are in-network with the following plans:
- BlueCross BlueShield
- United Healthcare
If you have different coverage, we can file a claim on your behalf in order to streamline the reimbursement process and help you maximize your available benefits.
If you are in need of extensive treatment and/or aren’t currently covered by a dental insurance plan, there are options available to make the overall cost of care more manageable. For instance, CareCredit offers flexible, low-interest financing that comes in a variety of lengths, allowing patients to select the one that fits their needs best. This payment plan can even be used for purely cosmetic services. To get started, you can fill out an application below and see if you qualify:
