Your First Visit

We ask that you arrive about 10 minutes early for your appointment so that you have enough time to fill out a New Patient form. You can fill out a New Patient form at your first appointment, or download, complete, and bring it with you.

Initial Examination

Your dentist will begin by reviewing your medical and dental history and completing a comprehensive dental exam. Your exam will include a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw, an oral cancer screening and any required x-rays or other diagnostic screening.

Treatment Plan

Based on your history and examination, your dentist will develop a long-term dental treatment plan for you. Your dentist will also take the time to answer any questions you have about your dental health and treatment options.

Insurance & Financing

At SouthWest Dental, we'll help you navigate our options for payment, direct billing to insurance companies and financing so you can focus on getting the dental care you need.

  • Direct Billing to Insurance

    We offer direct billing for most insurance plans. For your convenience, we can submit your insurance claim electronically, resulting in faster reimbursement, without the need for paper forms and signatures.

    Our administrative team can assist you in understanding your insurance plan better and can also send estimates to your insurance company prior to starting any major treatments. 

    Please bring your insurance plan information to your appointment.

  • Financing Through RBC

    SouthWest Dental can help you apply for financing through an RBC line of credit, to help you get the dental treatment you need. Speak to our administrative team to find out more about how you can apply.

  • Payment Methods

    Please note that any co-pays or amounts not covered by insurance are your responsibility, and must be paid at the time of your appointment.

    We accept payment by cash, debit or most major credit cards.

Support for Anxious Patients

Anxiety or fear around dental appointments is very common and it can prevent people from getting the dental care they need. If this sounds like you, don't fret.

The team at SouthWest Dental has a variety of practices in place, including dental sedation options, to help you relax during your appointments.
