Whether you are coming to Dr. Kleive to address long outstanding problems, have an oral emergency, or need to find a different dentist that you like and trust, the final step in the new patient process is collaborating on what treatment options are right for you.
We are a no pressure office which means we will never “sell” or try to “persuade” you to do procedures you are not comfortable with. Our goals are to set a specific agenda with you, keeping in mind the following things:
Your oral assessment results:
We learn the reasons you contacted us, your dental story, and the current condition of your oral health. Those will be the driving force in creating a treatment plan with you. Multiple treatment options may exist, depending on your desires. For example:
You grind your teeth, and they are starting to wear down. Porcelain crowns could help properly align your bite, or you simply might need an oral appliance to wear during the night to protect against teeth grinding.
But before any decisions are made, we also want to consider your timeline and budget.
Are you currently in pain?
Do you need your treatment completed before a specific date, or special occasion?
What is most important to you now?
Where do you want to be five years from now?
Where do you want to be ten years from now?
What is realistic and comfortable for you financially?
Would you be interested in financial assistance through CareCredit?
We can even work with your insurance company to process claims on your behalf for all types of insurance. We will ask your insurance plan to pay any benefits directly to you.
After determining where you are now, and where you want to be, we will work within a collaboratively planned structure designed uniquely for you. We enjoy every step of the new patient process, from the discovery of your needs, to the reward that comes from enhancing your oral health and confidence.
