Welcome to Kennedy Dental Group! We are pleased to announce that
we are now accepting new patients. You can expect your new patient appointment with our
doctors to last approximately one hour for a comprehensive exam, xrays/images and a custom
treatment plan for your specific needs. If you have any recent or current xrays/images, you
are welcome to bring those with you to your first appointment or upon your written request, you
can have your previous provider send or email them to us directly.
For your initial visit, we do require payment in full at the time of
service. As a courtesy to our patients with dental benefits, while we are not in network
or on preferred providers lists, this does not prevent us from receiving payments from your
insurance company and we are happy to electronically file your insurance claims on your behalf. And
if there are subsequent treatment need visits, we only require a partial payment of at least 30% at
the time of service. Please understand that while we are pleased to assist you with your dental benefits, it
is the patient’s responsibility to know the specific plan/policy coverage. For those without dental benefits, we
accept your full payment at the time of service by cash, check, mastercard, visa, discover. We even accept Care
Credit payment plan options for up to 12 months! If you’re interested in learning more about Care Credit, please
visit their website at carecredit.com.
Our practice is dedicated to quality care and exceptional service. We respect the importance
of your time and work hard to schedule appointments that accommodate the scheduling needs of all of our patients. Therefore, if
you find that you must change your appointment, to avoid a missed/broken appointment fee, we ask that you provide at least 2 business
days notice so that we are able to accommodate another patient.
We understand that
choosing a new dental provider can be a challenge. We appreciate you considering our practice for this honor and we look forward to meeting you soon!
Your First Visit:
You can expect to receive a thorough examination and careful
evaluation of your oral health, including necessary x-rays, and a
discussion of the most satisfactory treatment plan to meet your oral
health needs. Please read and completely fill out the new patient forms
and bring them to your first visit. We also need you to bring your
dental insurance card. Remember that you are responsible for full
payment at the first visit.
*Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to appointment time.
Payments and Insurance:
Patients with Dental Benefits: As a courtesy to our patients who have
dental benefits, we are happy to file your claims electronically from
our office. Under most circumstances, we do require at least a partial
payment towards services at the time the services are rendered. For
“restorative” treatments (Ex: fillings), we require at least 30% of the
treatment total. For “major” treatments (Ex: crowns, bridges,
extractions, root canal treatment), we require at least 50% of the
treatment total. For any preventative and/or diagnostic services (Ex:
prophylaxis, diagnostic films, exams), we do not require any payment at
the time services are rendered. Please understand that it is your
responsibility to know your specific plan/policy’s coverage. Your dental
benefits may cover less or more than what we estimate or collect from
you initially. Therefore, after we receive payment from your dental
benefits provider, there may be a balance leftover which we will send
you a statement for requiring you to pay within 30 days; or, there may
be a credit leftover. If the credit is $10 or more, you should receive a
reimbursement from us within 10 business days. If the credit is less
than $10, we will apply it to your next visit unless you contact us
requesting a reimbursement check.
Patients without Dental Benefits:
Patients without dental benefits are required to pay in full at the time
services are rendered.
Care Credit Payment Options:
We understand that regardless of whether or not a patient has any
dental benefits, care, maintenance and treatment are necessary to
maintaining good overall health; but medical expenses can be unexpected
and costly. That is why we are happy to be able to offer all of our
patients the advantage of the Care Credit patient payment plans. With
their high acceptance rate, these plans offer no interest (up to 12
months) and low interest (up to 60 months) payment plan options to
