If you are visiting JFK Dental Care for the first time, we ask that you simply print out the New Patient Form found here, fill it out and bring it with you for your appointment. This will expedite our service to you when you arrive.
From the first day new patients join our practice, we will professionally provide the best solutions to the patient's dental needs. As part of your first visit, the patient will be required to provide comprehensive medical and dental history on our Patient Form which is conveniently found above.
JFK Dental Care makes every effort to remind the patient two days prior to the appointment. We take appointments through the lunch hour (12am-1pm) as a convenience to our patients. We ask every patient to arrive a few minutes before the scheduled appointment. Tardiness may result in your appointment being delayed.
We ask each patient to provide a 24 hour notice if unable to keep an appointment. This considerate action allows us to offer that time to another patient.
Appointments that are not cancelled or rescheduled in advance may result in a Broken Appointment fee of $25.
As a service to our patients, most dental insurance programs are accepted. Our staff will prepare all necessary forms for the dental benefits. However, we remind each patient their specific policy is an agreement between the patient and the insurance company. The patient is responsible for the total obligation should the insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. We will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to the insurance company to determine the benefit amount.
Fees charged for services rendered to the insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all patients for similar services. The patient's policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. The patient should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Some insurance companies take care of claims promptly, while others delay payment for several months.
Payment is required the same day of services. JFK Dental Care provides a variety of payment options to assist the patient.
When requesting copies of dental records/x-rays, we require the request be in writing. Allow 3 business days from the date of request. There will be a processing fee of up to $20.
When the weather forecast may make traveling to JFK Dental Care unsafe, the patient will be notified, as early as possible, of office closure. At that time, we will reschedule the appointment for another day.
