We wanted to reach out to you as soon as possible in light of the most recent proclamation from our Governor prohibiting non-urgent dental care until June 15th. This is meant to conserve resources like masks and gloves for hospital workers caring for COVID-19 patients. We pledge to do our part to help contain this virus as well as care for our patients.

We will be contacting you soon to reschedule your upcoming appointment. If you are experiencing severe pain, trauma, or infection, please call the office phone number and we will respond promptly to advise you. Also you may check our Facebook page for updates.

Patient Information
Our Dental Receptionists and Office Manager will help you to schedule appointments, complete necessary paperwork, and answer any billing questions that you may have.

Patient Appointments

If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately, giving a minimum of 48 hours notice to avoid any missed appointment fees. We realize that unexpected illnesses and emergencies may occur, but we ask for your assistance in this regard.

Our office strives to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available.

Insurance & Patient Co-payments

In order to best assist you, it is important that you submit your dental and/or medical insurance information to us with your New Patient Paperwork a minimum of two business days prior to your scheduled appointment. This allows us time to contact your insurance company and obtain a breakdown of the benefits you or your employer have purchased from the company. In addition, you will want to bring a dental benefit book that your carrier should be able to provide. Our business team will be happy to help you understand your policy.

Should you be diagnosed with treatment services, we will be able to provide you with a detailed plan which will give you an estimate of how much your insurance company may pay for each procedure, as well as the portion you will be expected to pay at the time of service.

Professional care is provided to you, our patient family, and not to an insurance company. The insurance company is responsible only to the patient as a benefit from the individual or employer plan purchase, and the patient is responsible to the dentist. We will assist you in every way we can in the filing of your dental or medical claim and handling of insurance questions from our office on your behalf.

Financial Policy

•  Payment of any account balance is due in full within 20 days of statement date.
•  We gladly accept Visa, Discover, American Express, or MasterCard payments.
•  Payment plans are available through www.CareCredit.com.

Appointments & Consultations
multiple generation white males of a familyWe are happy to schedule a second-opinion consultation with one of our dentists to discuss treatment diagnosed for you. It is important to us that our patients are committed fully to a recommended course of treatment, and we make every effort to provide all available information on the types of treatment completed at Wheeler Family Dental, as well as options to make appointments comfortable.

All patients that are referred to our office from another practice, or who have self-referred themselves for a second opinion are required to undergo a complete examination by our dentists before they provide their diagnosis opinion. Please ensure that all available X-rays and chart notes from your prior office have been transferred to us prior to the scheduled appointment for review. Please note that many offices require 7 to 14 business days to transfer records.

It is imperative that we have all available dental (and medical if related to trauma or medically diagnosed disorder) insurance information in a timely manner, as we will be providing you with a comprehensive treatment estimate after your consultation with the dentist.

If you have questions about the consultation services we provide, please email us today or call at (541) 938-7752.
