Welcome to our family of patients. We appreciate the opportunity to provide you with the most advanced dental care in the area. Our team is made of well-trained professionals who work together as a team to provide the highest quality treatment in a warm and friendly environment. Our goal is to make you feel at home in our office. To better help us achieve your dental goals we have answers to questions that most patients ask.
Preventive dentistry is the starting point for maintaining your teeth for a lifetime. Our well-trained hygienists will provide the most comprehensive evaluation and treatment to better help preserve your teeth. They use the latest techniques and equipment to achieve this goal. Your responsibility involves daily dental hygiene, proper nutrition and periodic cleanings and check-ups with our hygiene team.
If you have teeth missing or broken we can also provide treatment for these situations with the latest dental technology including CEREC CAD/CAM technology. This allows us to make crowns, inlays and bridges in one appointment saving you valuable time. We also can restore teeth traditionally with white fillings hiding the lost tooth structure. Missing teeth can be replaced with implants, which can also be performed in the office. This allows your care to be streamlined into one office and the same professional team taking care of you. Partials and dentures can also be fabricated to suit your needs.
Cosmetic dentistry is becoming a popular phrase these days and our office is up to date with the latest techniques and materials to achieve any of your aesthetic goals including whitening, white fillings and veneers.
The main goal of our office is to maintain your teeth and achieve a naturally beautiful smile using the latest technology and material while constantly taking further education to maintain our team's level of knowledge.
We recognize that emergency situations can occur and our office will do everything in our power to respond to your problem as quickly as possible. Our goal is to treat your emergency promptly so calling earlier in the day will help us to see you and evaluate the situation. We reserve special times in our schedule for emergencies that will allow us to evaluate and treat the emergency quickly.
As part of your long term dental health we believe in the benefits of regular cleaning appointments with our hygiene team and periodic exams. After your cleaning visit we can schedule your next visit to allow us to keep consistent with your dental needs. Remember to tell the hygienist of any health or medication changes, which may affect your dental treatment. If you require a premedication prior to dental visits please remember to take it one hour prior to your appointment.
We make every effort to keep down the cost of your dental treatment. You can help prevent payment problems by paying for treatment at the time of service unless an alternative payment option has been agreed upon. We do offer CareCredit to help finance your dental treatment, inquire with our front office team to discuss these options.
Dental insurance is meant to cover some but not all of your dental treatment. As a courtesy our office will submit to your insurance any pre-estimates and payment. Please make sure we are aware of any dental insurance that you may have so we can help in the process. Most plans include co-insurance, deductibles and other expenses which must be paid by the patient. Because dental insurance is meant to help with your dental treatment, the remaining balance for treatment is the patient's responsibility. We can offer payment plans through CareCredit for the balance. We do our best to not have your ability to pay be a road block to your dental health and well-being.
We have included a health questionnaire to be filled out and brought to your next appointment to help our team best treat your dental health.
Welcome to the family and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Very truly yours,
Bryan D. Petryszak, DMD and your Portville Dental Team
