Q: At what age should I bring my child to Wooster Dental for her first dental visit?
We recommend every child should be seen by their 3rd birthday. After an examination of the child’s mouth, we can address any questions you might have and advise you on normal ages for your child’s erupting teeth, habits such as thumb sucking, and dietary and cleaning recommendations.
Q: What do I need to bring to my first appointment?
You will need a photo ID, insurance card, list of medications you are currently taking, and the phone number of your medical doctor. New patients will need to complete a patient registration form. The adult and child new patient forms, as well as our financial form, are available on this website. To save time at our office you may print them out and complete them at home and bring to your visit.
Q: Do you accept insurance? What other forms of payment are accepted?
We accept most forms of dental insurance and we are a Delta Dental Premier provider. Please check with our office prior to your visit to determine whether your insurance will be accepted.
We accept cash, major credit cards (MC, VISA, AMEX, Discover), Care Credit, and personal checks for payment.
We do not accept any state assisted insurance.
Q: How often should I be seen at Wooster Dental?
Everyone has unique dental needs and requires a customized dental treatment plan – there is no one-size-fits-all dental plan. Some people need to visit the dentist once or twice a year; others may need more visits. We will recommend to you the best treatment plan for you and each member of your family.
Q: What should I expect at my first visit?
Typically, your first appointment will consist of an evaluation of your teeth, gums and mouth. Based on this evaluation, x-rays may need to be taken, and formulation of a treatment plan to follow. Usually no dental treatment is provided during this first exam. If you’re having significant tooth pain at your visit, your visit will be treated as a dental emergency and your exam and treatment plan visit may be scheduled for a later date. If no insurance, payment will be due at time of visit.
Q: What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
Please call our office as soon as you determine that you or a family member may have a potential dental emergency. If during regular business hours, we will try our best to work you into our schedule if deemed necessary.
