New Dental Patient Information – Ottawa, ON
Welcoming You to Your First Visit
Our team at Smyth Dental Centre is eager to welcome you and your family to our dental practice. Serving the Ottawa community since 1985, we work hard to deliver the kind of service, attention, and care that you and your loved ones deserve. Complete with advanced dental services that improve smiles and keep them healthy for decades, we want you to feel confident in your decision to choose us. Before arriving for your first appointment, take a few moments to review the following information and call us with any questions.
Once you schedule an appointment with our team, we will email you the new patient paperwork that you will need to fill out before your visit. This allows for greater convenience and a faster check-in process when you arrive.
We are pleased to welcome your dental insurance, and we will do our best to help maximize any benefits you might have. It is important to note, though, that we cannot immediately know the full details of your plan until we have a chance to see you for a consultation. It is during this visit that we will deliver a complete treatment plan and cost estimate. This information can then be submitted to your insurance company to determine how much coverage you can expect to receive.
Although it is unlikely that your dental insurance plan will cover the full amount of any procedure, you might receive partial coverage, helping to lower your out-of-pocket expenses. The remaining balance (not covered by your insurer) will be left for you to pay.
When visiting Smyth Dental Centre, we do ask that patients abide by direct assignment, which means that you must pay the full amount for services when receiving treatment. This is the suggestion of the Ontario Dental Association and the preference of most dental insurance companies. When seeking reimbursement from your insurance company, our team can help to submit your claim electronically so that you avoid additional stress.
