New Patients And Insurance

new patients and insuranceThese are two of the most commonly asked questions I get.  Are you taking new patients and what insurance do you accept.  Let us take these topics one at a time.

YES!  We are accepting new patients.  We will always be accepting new patients until we decide to not practice dentisry anymore.  There may be times when the waiting time is longer than others but we want to meet you and help you with any of your dental problems.  If you find out that the dentist you are seeing is not accepting new patients, beware.  It might be time lo go ahead and look for a new dentist.  That practice is slowing shutting down and will decrease its schedule and not be available for emergencies.  Go ahead and find someone you like and has hours convinient to you.  Bohle Family Dentistry has multiiple doctors on staff so our office is open Monday thru Saturday in case you need us.  Convinience rules the day and we do our best to be here.

new patients and insuranceInsurance is a completely different issue.  When I hear the question, what insurances do you take, it makes me chuckle.  I think you mean, do you take my insurance?  The last time I checked we had over 2500 different insurance plans in our database.  I don't think you want me to list all of those when you ask.  Yes, we accept all commercial dental insurances but the key question for you is whether we are in-network or not.  It will always cost you less to see an in-network provider.  There are many reasons we are in-network for some plans and not for others.  You might also find there are no area dentists that are in-network.  So, this is what we do for you.  Call us and tell us what dental plan you have and we will call the insurance company and find out your coverage.  Once your treatment is decided we will match your plan to the treatment and come up with our best estimate of what your plan will pay.  We do our best based on what the insurance tells us but are not always 100% correct.  This is usually because of the fine print they don't tell us about or the substitution of coverages.  Our insurance department works very hard to provide this service to you so that you may better budget your finances.  So the next time you have dental insurace questions, ask, "Do you accept my insurance?"
