Are you new to Legacy Family Dental? Our team can’t wait to meet you, learn all about your dental needs, and address them in ways that leave you smiling confidently once more. Before arriving in-person, please read the information below so that you’re well-informed regarding what to expect from this first visit. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us in Plano so we can clarify.
In most cases, we will schedule a full 90 minutes for your initial appointment. Our thorough hygienists will perform a comprehensive cleaning, assessment of gum tissue and supporting structures, oral cancer screening and more. They will also provide vital education about how good oral health leads to good overall health. After a visual examination, we will provide any personalized recommendations for treatment (if needed) and then schedule future visits. By the time you’re ready to leave the practice, we strive to leave you feeling knowledgeable and confident about your dental health.
Completing the new patient paperwork is an important first step that will help Dr. McConnell learn everything he needs to know about your dental history, your medical background, and your specific reasons for visiting. For added convenience, we’re happy to offer these files here online as downloadable PDF’s that you can print at home and complete on your own schedule before arriving – just remember to bring them with you for our front desk!
Navigating the details of your unique dental insurance plan may seem overwhelming at first, but our benefits expert, Raida, is more than up to the task. She will provide clear estimates of out-of-pocket cost, file claims on the patient’s behalf, and use her knowledge of the system to maximize reimbursements. Our goal is to make the payment process as smooth and free of unnecessary stress as possible.
If you don’t currently have dental insurance coverage, financing is another option that can help make your treatment plan more manageable from a cost perspective. We’re happy to work with CareCredit, which offers several payment plans that can be used for a wide variety of services, including purely cosmetic makeovers. Better yet, there’s very little or even NO interest attached, depending on the length of your chosen plan. To see if you qualify, please complete an application at the link below:
