Making an Appointment

Dear Patient(s),
Thank you for considering us to be your oral health care provider. Our goal is to make your dental visit an excellent experience. For many people, going to the dentist can be stressful. To help eliminate some anxiety we have provided a checklist for your convenience.

  • Call (757) 588-8162 for an appointment
  • Inform our staff of your reason for making the appointment so appropriate time will be provided.
  • New Patient Forms will be mailed to you, complete them in ink, and bring them to your first appointment to save time. Also, bring your insurance card and driver’s license.
  • Provide legible past dental records and x-rays where applicable. Radiographs are diagnostic tools, and in the event they are not current (taken within 6 months) or not legible (clear digital x-rays, no paper or film x-rays will be accepted) new radiographs will be necessary to provide a thorough exam.

We look forward to meeting you.

What to Expect on Your First Visit

In order to provide you with the best possible dental care, we reserve 45 minutes for this initial visit. Dr. Honore will meet with you personally to review your medical and dental history and discuss any concerns you might have.

During this initial visit, we will obtain all the pertinent information and collect all the necessary records to determine how best to meet your dental needs.

These records include a set of full-mouth x-rays, complete periodontal charting, a
thorough oral exam and an oral cancer screening. If you already have recent dental records (within 6 months) from your previous dentist, please make arrangements to have them sent to you or to our office prior to your visit.

Once all information is collected, Dr. Honore will review the findings with you and make recommendations based on the state of your teeth, gum tissues, and supporting bone, as well as their potential effect on overall health. This consultation is designed to be educational and informative, enabling you to make the best possible decisions. All fees for recommended treatment will be discussed in advance. We will gladly discuss payment options, and assist you with your insurance needs.

Financial Information
  • Our office accepts cash, checks, and debit or credit cards, including MasterCard and Visa.
  • For patients interested in extended payment plans we offer flexible-,
    low-, or no-interest financing through CareCredit. If this interests
    you, please contact our office at 757-588-8162.
  • As a courtesy to you, we accept benefit payments from most insurance
    companies. Our office will bill your insurance company for you. This
    will reduce your immediate, out-of-pocket expenditures. Our office will
    provide your insurance company with necessary documents and X-rays at no
    extra charge.
  • Insurance coverage is only an estimation.

Please note that any deductible, co-pays, noncovered services, and balances due are the responsibility of the patient at the time of service.

Insurance Information

Thank you for choosing our practice. We are committed to providing the best treatment for our patients. If we participate with your insurance company, we will file a claim on your behalf. What could be due at your visit would be any co-pay or deductible amounts. Insurance coverage varies significantly from company to company, even within the same company according to individual patient plans. Plans may vary as to procedures covered (or excluded), plan deductibles, percentage paid, limits of coverage on office visits, xrays, anesthesia, and maximum coverage. Our office, as a courtesy to our patients, will try our best to estimate what your insurance will pay. We encourage you to contact your insurance company in advance to determine the level of benefits your company will or will not pay for procedures.
