Appointments

In respect of your time, all patients are seen on an appointment basis. Please call in advance so we may reserve adequate time for you.

Cancellations

We understand that on occasion cancellations are necessary, particularly due to illness. Please remember, though, that each appointment time is exclusively for you and last minute cancellations prevent us from serving other patients. In consideration of all of our patients, a 48 hour notice of change of appointment is required. Any cancellations with less than 48 hours notice will be charged $75.

Financial Considerations

Payment for services is due at the time of service. For your convenience, we are happy to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We also can assist you with applications for credit plans, CareCredit or CitiHealth, often with a no interest option.

Dental Insurance

Please realize that we do not work for any insurance carriers, nor limit our patients and services to a particular network. We work for you. Our treatment recommendations for you are based solely on what we feel is best for your health.
Dental insurance is designed to pay for a portion of the cost of treatment. Some companies pay a fixed allowance for certain procedures while others pay a percentage of the fee; however no insurance company attempts to cover all dental costs. Your employer has made this coverage available to you and the type of contract was chosen with the insurance company. We will attempt to help you to maximize your benefits, but the sole responsibility for payment of all fees with our office rest with you – the patient. Please help us by bringing your insurance information and your insurance card on your first visit. As a courtesy, we will process your insurance claim and your insurance company will mail the check directly to you.

Precautions for Your Health

Because your health and well-being is our primary concern, we follow the most rigorous protocols of sterilization and disinfection above and beyond what is required. Most items used in treatment are disposable. Those instruments that are reusable are thoroughly cleaned and heat sterilized in a state-of-the-art autoclave. Dental handpieces are sterilized after each patient. The waterlines for all dental equipment are routinely sanitized in accordance with the most recent recommendations. Our goal is to exceed your expectiations.

No Fear Approach

RELAX! You are in great hands! Does the mere idea of an upcoming dental visit result in anxiety? Has anxiety actually caused you to postpone that cleaning or other preventive treatment?
Apprehension in the area of dental treatment is actually quite common. Just about HALF of the public feels anxious or uncomfortable with dental visits.
Your comfort and relaxation is a basic concept of our treatment philosophy. Our staff is trained to reduce anxiety and ensure a positive experience. Dr. Gumm utilizes a number of strategies and techniques to create a comfortable environment that is personalized to each patient.
