New Patient Information
It is critically important to Dr. Aguilera that each of his patients has the utmost confidence in the care they will receive in his hands. It is our goal at Dr. A Smiles in Newport Beach to ensure that our patients understand all aspects of their dental care before any treatment is commenced. Before treatment, Dr. Aguilera will go over all aspects of care with each patient, from appointment requirements, to potential fees, to each detail of the procedures to be performed.
Financial Information for Dental Treatment
At the Orange County offices of John Aguilera DDS, we provide services that we believe are far superior to those of our competitors, yet we work hard to maintain a fee structure that is reasonable for our area. In an effort to avoid dental “sticker shock,” our patients are always fully apprised of the cost of their dental treatment before we begin any procedures.
We understand that dental treatment costs can be prohibitive to some of our patients, and we firmly believe that no person should forgo dental care because cost is a concern. Although we expect financial commitments to be honored as all work is done, those in need of financial assistance can discuss payment arrangements with our business staff before treatment is started to help decrease financial stresses after treatment. We have several payment options and also provide some independent financial payment services. We can help you find financial arrangements to suit your needs.
It is fortunate that so many patients have insurance benefits these days. Our office accepts most dental insurance plans. We are happy to provide the service of insurance submission to help you maximize your benefits and will follow up with insurance companies to help you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
Scheduling a Dental Consultation
We understand how busy our patients can be, and we work hard to accommodate their hectic schedules. We offer cosmetic, restorative, and family dentistry appointments as early as 8 a.m., and are also happy to schedule evening appointments. We are able to schedule appointments as far as six months in advance, as well, so we will be sure to find a time that will suit your needs.
Because we have a very busy practice, we ask that any scheduling conflicts be made known to our office staff as soon as possible. We thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to working with you.
