Patient Resources

Thank you for choosing our office for your child’s dental needs. Dr. Duffy and the entire team specialize in pediatric dentistry. We strive to provide a positive dental experience for you and your child.

We gladly invite parents to accompany their children during their first pediatric dental visit to our office. After your first introduction to the office, we request your help in obtaining the trust of your child. This trust is expressed by you, the parent, remaining in the waiting room during your child’s subsequent appointments.

We recommend your child’s first preventive dental visit at age 12 months; however, in some children there is a need to be seen at an earlier age. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. recommends your child visit the dentist every 6 months for a dental exam, cleaning, and x-rays to maintain good oral health. Preventive dental care is the secret to a healthy smile.

Insurance Options

Patient Resources Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits.

Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid as per the contract agreement.

As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them. If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action.

Once treatment has started, we will file your claims. To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our New Patient Registration Forms. Please have your insurance information accessible when scheduling your first appointment - that way we can verify your insurance benefits and minimize your out-of-pocket expense! If your plan requires a dentist referral, please obtain one before scheduling your complimentary consultation to avoid treatment delays. Please bring your insurance card and information to your consultation appointment.
