New Patients are Welcome
A large number of our patients are referred to our office by a dental healthcare professional such as a Dentist, Dental Hygienist and Dental Specialists. There are also instances when patients self refer, or are referred by a friend or relative.
Patients do not need a referral from a General Dentist to be seen at our office. We appreciate your referrals and are always happy to see you, your friends and your family at our office. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of oral healthcare in the most gentle, efficient and caring manner possible.
A large number of our patients receive their preventative dental care and checkups at our office. Although we are a specialty practice, we are well equipped to handle a wide range of dental problems. During your first visit, we will complete a thorough evaluation. This evaluation will include the use of necessary x-rays and other diagnostic aids to help us make an accurate diagnosis of the condition of your mouth, teeth, jaws and gums. We will determine your individual needs and preferences and then discuss all of your treatment options. New patients can spend anywhere from an hour to three hours with us for their first appointment, depending upon the complexity of their problems and the degree of clarification required by the patient.
Because we are not an insurance controlled and not a corporately owned and operated group practice, we are able to space appointments to where we are able to spend the appropriate amount of time with each patient. We know time is valuable so we make every effort to minimize patient wait time. If you would like, you can print and fill out your New Patient Form prior to your first visit.
Your Comfort is Important to Us
It is normal to be nervous and apprehensive about medical procedures involving the mouth. That is why we offer several sedation options that provide patients with a more comfortable and pleasant experience. We encourage patients to discuss their concerns with any of our Team members or Dr. Devoll. Patient comfort is our highest priority.
When humanly possible, we see same day dental emergencies during our regular business hours. Emergencies include any condition that is causing moderate to severe dental pain, jaw pain, or head & neck pain. Any unexplained or unexpected swelling of the face and/or jaw is also considered an emergency.
Please call us at 281-338-1760 to schedule your emergency visit.
If you are experiencing an emergency that is interfering with your ability to swallow and or breathe, seek immediate attention by dialing 911.
Cost of Treatment
We believe it is our responsibility to provide the best possible care while charging professional fees that are reasonable and fair. In most cases, we are able to give an accurate estimate of the anticipated health care investment after the initial evaluation. To help you plan your budget, please call our office to determine the fee for your initial evaluation.
If financing is needed, we offer several payment options designed to fit the needs of most budgets (credit approval required). Credit application is made through a third party lender specializing in health care financing. (You will give your personal financial information directly to the lender. We do not obtain your personal financial information.) You can apply for pre-approval online today by visiting CareCredit.
Dental Insurance Info
Regardless of network affiliation, we will file dental PPO insurance claims and work with all PPO dental insurance plan to maximize patient benefits. We are an in-network provider for Cigna Dental and Delta Dental and will file an insurance claims after every visit. If we are not an “in-network provider” for a particular plan, that plan will likely pay the same amount towards treatment as it would for an in-network provider. Our normal fees are comparable to the allowed fees of most dental PPO plans. If you have dental insurance, we will need your insurance information when you call to schedule your initial visit.
