In our office, your appointment is a reserved time just for you. Your first cleaning appointment lasts about 1 hour. You will meet our staff, see our highly trained and friendly hygienist for your cleaning, have 4 free Bitewing x-rays and get a free exam by Dr. Cirka or Dr. Meier. Because your appointment time is reserved just for you, we respect your time and see you as close to your appointed time as possible. We make every attempt to see new patients within one week of your request for an appointment.
We pride ourselves on maintaining good communication with you to answer all of your questions. Since your appointment time is reserved just for you, you’ll have little to no wait and your appointment will never be rushed.
The total fee for a new patient cleaning appointment is usually between $94.00 and $184.00. If you have dental insurance, it will typically cover 80% to 100% of this fee. We ask all new patients to pay for this appointment even if they have dental insurance. Your dental insurance company will then directly reimburse you. This means that you will personally receive a check for these services from your insurance company, usually within 2-3 weeks of receiving the service. We will gladly send your claim forms electronically to your insurance company to ensure quick reimbursement to you. This is done to establish a trusting relationship between our office and you. We file all insurance claims for you at no cost.
Comprehensive Exam: Usually $51.00. This is free for new patients!
This includes diagnosis, tooth charting, periodontal probing, cancer screening, soft tissue charting, treatment plan, and home care supplies.
Bitewing X-rays: 4 Bitewing x-rays are usually $62.00. These are free for new patients! Bitewings are x-rays that show the spaces between back teeth. These are taken every 6 months in our office as recommended by the American Dental Association.
Full Mouth Series of X-rays: $159.00. This is a total of 18 x-rays. It is a necessary procedure if you need a deep cleaning (scaling and root planning), have many fillings, or if you desire cosmetic dental treatment. These are strongly recommended if you have never had a full set of x-rays taken or have not had a full set in the past 3 years. These x-rays are updated every 3 years as recommended by the American Dental Association.
Dental cleaning: $94.00 – $184.00. The type of cleaning required depends
on the amount of tartar and plaque (build-up) you have and your oral
health condition (bleeding gums, for example).
Consultation: Free for new patients. This includes FREE bitewing x-rays, and a FREE comprehensive exam and consultation with Dr. Cirka. This is a great way to get all of your questions answered and learn about your options for cosmetic and restorative dentistry without making a big commitment to our office.
Emergency Exam: If your first visit to our office is for an emergency, we will see you within 24 hours of your phone call. We usually can see you immediately.
We will provide you with:
The price for this visit is $37.00, which includes one x-ray and is to be paid at the time of service. If you have insurance, we submit all insurance claims for you for reimbursement directly to you. After making the diagnosis, we will discuss the problem with you, provide information about the problem, and any necessary instructions and prescriptions for
Dr. Cirka’s diagnosis will determine what will be done. Depending on this diagnosis, you may be brought back to receive necessary treatment and a comprehensive exam after the pain, infection or swelling have decreased. We follow this protocol in order to provide the greatest amount of comfort and safety to you when the necessary procedures are performed.
Broken Appointments: Just a quick note. Because our office respects your time, we ask that you honor all appointments that you make in our office. An appointment is an agreement by us that we will be on time and ready for you when you arrive and also that you will be on time for your appointment. If you must change an appointment, we request a minimum of 48 hours notice.
With adequate notice, we are able to help someone else during that time. Broken appointments with less than 48 hours notice may be subject to a $50 cancellation fee. Broken appointments are unfair to other patients because someone else could have been helped during that time. Thank you for your kind understanding.
