Your First Visit
For your first visit, it may be helpful to arrive 15 minutes early, during which time you will complete a patient history form. This will provide us with valuable information regarding your general and oral health so we may better care for you. Typically, your first visit will include an initial examination and full mouth series of x-rays. This will allow the doctor to thoroughly evaluate your dental health and formulate a treatment plan tailored to your needs. If your first visit is to treat an immediate dental problem, we will gladly provide you with a follow-up appointment for a comprehensive examination.
We see patients on an appointment basis to ensure our undivided attention. In consideration of our patient's valuable time, we appreciate their consideration of our schedule. If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, we request 24 hours notice so that we can make the time available for another patient.
Appointments may be scheduled during the following hours:
Monday 9:00am - 5:00pm
Tuesday 9:00am - 5:00pm
Wednesday 9:00am - 5:00pm
Thursday 9:00am - 5:00pm
Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm
We request payment at the time each service is provided. This allows us to hold down the cost of providing quality dental care. We offer a variety of payment options including:
- payment by cash
- payment by check
- payment by major credit card
- automatic billing to your credit card
- financing by Care Credit
If treatment of your dental condition requires multiple visits, the doctor will provide you with a written estimate of your treatment cost. We will be happy to arrange a mutually satisfactory payment schedule.
A courtesy discount is extended to senior citizens.
Dental insurance is intended to cover a portion of your dental treatment. The amount of coverage depends on the individual contract your employer or union has with the insurance carrier. Generally, you will be responsible for an annual deductible, as well as the portion of the fee not covered by your insurance carrier. Our computerized billing and insurance system allows us to submit insurance claims directly for you in most cases. We will gladly submit your insurance if your carrier accepts computerized claim forms and assigns benefits to our office. Our courteous and trained staff can advise you on whether your insurance can be directly submitted by our office.
In those cases where benefits cannot be assigned to our office, you will be responsible for payment of all fees. A special statement will be provided to you, which will allow you to submit a form to your carrier for direct reimbursement to you. To allow us to better determine your insurance situation, we request you bring any pertinent insurance forms and information at the time of your first visit.
Obviously, there is never a "right time" for a dental emergency. Our staff strives to accommodate your dental needs. If an emergency does arise, we would appreciate a call as early in the day as possible, to allow us to schedule your appointment most readily. You can call the office at (845) 942-1600, 24 hours a day to schedule your emergency appointment.
You are encouraged to call with any questions you may have. The staff of Stony Point Dental is willing and able to answer many of your questions. If you wish to speak to the doctor, and he is attending to another patient at the time, he will gladly return your call at his earliest opportunity. Please understand that he wishes to give his undivided attention to each of his patients. Of course, if you are calling with an emergent problem, the doctor will attempt to speak with you immediately.
