Patient Information
Our front office staff will help you to schedule appointments, complete necessary paperwork, and answer any billing questions that you may have.

Patient Appointments

Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and we ask the same courtesy from your family. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately, giving a minimum of 48 hour notice to avoid any missed appointment fees. We realize that unexpected illnesses and emergencies may occur, but we ask for your assistance in this regard.

Insurance & Patient Co-payments

If you have insurance we will help you determine the coverage you have available. In order to best assist you, it is important that you submit your dental and/or medical insurance information to us with your New Patient Paperwork a minimum of two business days prior to your scheduled appointment. This allows us time to contact your insurance company and obtain a breakdown of the benefits your employer or you have purchased from the company. In addition, you will want to bring a dental benefit book that your carrier should be able to provide. Our business team will be happy to help you understand your policy.

Financial Policy

In an effort to reduce the cost to you, the patient, while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established the financial policy as follows:

• Payment of any account balance is due in full within 20 days of statement date.
• We gladly accept Visa, Discover, American Express, or MasterCard payments.
• Payment plans are available through www.CareCredit.com.

Appointments & Consultations

We are happy to schedule a second-opinion consultation with our doctors to discuss treatment diagnosed for you. It is important to us that our patients are committed fully to a recommended course of treatment, and we make every effort to provide all available information on the types of treatment completed at Columbia View Dental, as well as options to make appointments comfortable.

All patients that are referred to our office from another practice, or who have self-referred themselves for a second opinion are required to undergo a complete examination by our doctors before providing their diagnosis opinion. Please ensure that all available x-rays and chart notes from your prior office have been transferred to us prior to the scheduled appointment for review. Please note that many offices require 7 – 14 business days to transfer records.
