Patient Information

Going to the dentist should never feel bad!

Your First Visit — What To Expect

At your first visit to Austin Dental, you’ll meet with your dentist for:

  • Full dental exam
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Digital imaging and x-rays (as necessary)
  • 3D full face scan
  • Gum health evaluation
  • Bite alignment and mandibular joint check
  • Follow-up treatment plan

As part of your first appointment, you’ll also be able to ask questions about treatment options, how to improve your smile, how to care for your teeth, and anything else you’re wondering about.

We’ll take the time to answer your questions and make sure you have the information you need to make a smart decision about your dental health.

“I had so much apprehension going into today after dealing with a large chain where I was made to feel really badly for the state of my teeth. Both the hygienist and doctor were very comforting and I walked away feeling great. I can’t say enough great things about this place and can confidently say that I will be a customer for life.”

– F. J.

I’m nervous about going to the dentist — can you help?

Absolutely! At Austin Dental we take great pride in helping everyone feel comfortable throughout their visit. We offer a variety of sedation options, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation to help you overcome dental anxiety. But our dentists are so gentle and friendly you might not even need it.

What does fee for service mean?

Fee for service simply means that we don’t allow insurance companies to dictate our standard of care. Since we are independent, we aren’t limited in the quality of materials we use or the treatment options we provide. Your oral health is our top priority.

Do you accept dental insurance?

In order to help you maximize your dental benefits, we will gladly file your claim for the treatment that we have provided and send any additional information to expedite your claim. We are non-contracted with all insurance companies. However, as long as you have the freedom to choose your healthcare providers, insurance will assist you at our office.
