New patients are always welcome at New Haven Dental Group, regardless of their age or the state of their oral health. To make sure you are completely prepared for your first visit, we recommend taking a moment to read through the information below. We want you to feel welcomed and comfortable right from the very beginning, so please do not hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you and helping your entire family to enjoy healthy, functional teeth and gums.
After you are greeted by our front desk team, a member of our staff will escort you to the back, where they will begin the appointment by taking a few X-rays and intraoral photos of your mouth. You will then get to meet your dentist, who will spend a few minutes chatting with you so they can learn about your dental history, goals, and expectations. Next, they will perform a comprehensive exam, and if time allows, you will receive a thorough cleaning from one of our hygienists as well. Before you leave, your dentist will recommend a plan for future treatment that will help you to improve and/or maintain your oral health.
New Haven Dental Group welcomes most forms of dental insurance, and we will strive to make the process of maximizing your benefits one of the easiest parts of your appointments. Kathy, our insurance and financing coordinator, will be happy to answer any questions you might have. She will even be able to estimate how much you will be expected to pay out-of-pocket the day of your visit. (Please keep in mind that while we try to make our estimates as accurate as possible, we are sometimes off by a few dollars.) We will also file insurance claims on your behalf so you do not have to worry about all of that paperwork.
We currently participate with plans from the following providers:
Even if you do not see your provider on this list, we might still be able to use your plan to help you save on your dental care! Give us a call to learn more.
Please note, if your insurance company does not pay its share within 60 days after your treatment, you will be responsible for the balance. We will give you as much notice as possible if this is going to become an issue.
For patients without dental insurance, or those whose insurance does not cover as much of their treatment as they would like, flexible, low-to-no interest financing may be available. Through our website, you can apply for a plan through CareCredit that will break up the cost of your dental care into manageable monthly payments. CareCredit offers a variety of plans designed to work with any budget, and the approval process takes just a few minutes. To explore your options and select a plan, follow the link below.
The Essential Dental Plan offers a simple and affordable way for patients without insurance to save on their dental care without having to sign up for traditional coverage. For one reasonable annual fee, you will receive sizeable discounts on a wide variety of dental services, including checkups and cleanings, restorative care, and even orthodontics.
