New Patient Information
Welcome to Kalmor Dental! We’re always happy to accept new patients to our practice, so whether you have an infant, toddler, or teenager at home, we’re ready and able to take care of their smile! If you’re thinking about coming to see us for the first time, please take a moment to read through the helpful information below so you can know exactly what to expect. If you have any questions afterward, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can’t wait to meet you and give your child plenty of reasons to smile!
Your Child’s First Visit
Dr. Coplin, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that a child should have their first dental appointment around the time of their first birthday. We work very hard to make a child’s first dental experience as positive and enjoyable as possible. We want your child to be comfortable from the moment they step through our doors so they never have a reason to dread their appointments. When the first visit goes well, we find that the others that follow tend to be a breeze for everyone involved!
Their first appointment will consist of a brief evaluation and cleaning given by one of our team members, and then Dr. Coplin will perform a more thorough oral exam. He’ll then discuss any treatments your child might need, talk about their habits at home, provide a fluoride treatment, and then answer any questions you and your child might have. After that, we’ll give your child a little bouncy ball as a reward for completing their first visit.
New Patient Forms
Keeping an eye on your child while filling out patient forms can be a bit stressful, so we’ve decided to make your life easier and give you the option of downloading and completing our forms in the comfort of your own home. Now you can do it while your child is asleep or at school! When the day of their appointment arrives, just bring the filled-out forms with you so your child can see Dr. Coplin right away. Let us know if you have any issues accessing our forms.
Our mission is to provide every patient with truly high-quality dentistry that is also extremely budget-friendly! Kalmor Dental accepts a number of payment options that are convenient for any patient. We accept cash, checks, and many major credit cards. For more extensive treatments, we offer low-to-no interest financing to make payment more flexible.
If you have any questions about our various payment options, we’re always happy to talk to you. We’re willing to take the time to explain your options and find the one that best suits you.
Dental Insurance, Medicaid & CHIP Accepted
Kalmor Dental is a preferred provider for Medicaid and CHIP, and we are also happy to accept and file claims for all other insurance plans on your behalf. We are proud to offfer each and every one of our patients the same Medicaid rates regardless of their income.
Different insurance plans offer different kinds of coverage, so we advise looking over your plan before you come to see us so you can know what is and isn’t covered. If your insurance provides coverage for a certain treatment, you will receive it at a reduced personal cost. To help us process your insurance claim faster, be sure to fill out the insurance questions on our patient forms. Please note that if your plan’s benefits change during the course of your child’s treatment, you will be responsible for any difference in coverage.
