Frequently Asked Questions
If you are a new patient at the Brentwood Village Dental Clinic please inform us of the last time you used your current dental insurance for a check-up at your previous dental clinic. If you’re not sure when you were last seen and/or can’t remember when you had a “New Patient” exam at your previous dentist office PLEASE ASK US TO HELP.
We would be happy to contact your previous dental provider to try to retrieve this information for your benefit.
Our staff can also contact your insurance company to obtain a general “plan breakdown” which is very useful information for us to have when serving you the patient. Thirdly, another helpful tool we have at our disposal is to send predeterminations directly to insurance companies. The advantage to a predetermination is that we will receive an accurate written depiction of your coverage for specific services in exact dollars and cents. The only detriment to sending a predetermination is that it takes approximately two to six weeks for us to receive a response. (Please note that due to privacy policies some insurance providers will only send predetermination responses directly to the insured member. In this circumstance the patient would then be required to provide our staff with a copy in order for us to interpret it for you.)
Please note: Our office does not keep a cash float on the premises for the safety of our staff. Therefore, we are unable to provide change for cash payments; any overpayments will be left as a credit on your account for future appointments. For this reason, we prefer not to take cash payments. Other acceptable payment options are: Direct Debit, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, registered cheque and money order.
Did you know that most insurance policies will only cover a “ New Patient/Complete ” exam once every five years, but a “ Recall ” exam is almost always covered at least once a year? What this means is that if you switch dental clinics, the first comprehensive dental exam you receive may not be covered, even though you are due for your annual check-up. (A similar scenario also applies to Panoramic x-rays .) It’s always important to be familiar with your insurance policy. In order to avoid receiving any unexpected invoices from your dentist office you can take a proactive role as a patient by staying informed as to your coverage ($ maximum, % covered, benefit year, service frequencies allowed, etc.).
