Finding a Dentist has just gotten easier!

The Sioux Falls area is a busy community with a growing population.  Most families seek routine dental care and treatment of dental emergencies, but may have trouble finding a dental clinic in our ever-expanding market.  A question I am often asked is, “when is the best time to schedule a dental appointment?” or “are you accepting new patients?”  The truth is, nearly all dentists are accepting new patients, but some are unable to accommodate these appointments on short notice.  Plann...

Regular care habits make a big difference in our dental ...

Important to Know the Benefit Year on Your Dental Plan

Dental insurance policies can be quite confusing to say the least.  One detail that is often overlooked is a policy's "benefit year".  Many policies have a "benefit year" that is January 1st thru December 31st.  This means on January 1st a patient would "start over" with a full benefit amount (yearly maximum benefit amounts can vary greatly from policy to policy).  Other dental insurance policies, such as the Sioux Falls School District insurance policy for example, have a "benefit yea...

HIPAA & Health History Updates

Many of our patients have been coming here for years and have seen the same dentist during that time. As the new dentists are meeting patients, they want to begin their relationship with the most current personal information. Therefore, we will be asking you to update your health history before your next dental appointment. You will be able to enter the information on an IPAD or use a paper form. This will only take a few minutes and will now be done on an annual basis. We are also...
