Welcome to Wethersfield Dental Group! As a new patient, Dr. Phadnis and her team will be working hard during this important first appointment to earn your trust and establish a long-term relationship that will hopefully span many more visits. We do ask that you take a few minutes to read the following information before arriving in-person so that you know what to expect and what we will expect from you. Please contact our dental office if you have any questions or concerns.
Your First Visit
Dr. Phadnis strives to make each patient’s initial appointment as comprehensive, educational, and fulfilling as possible. We will provide the following services:
- A full review of medical and dental history
- A dedicated oral cancer screening
- Detailed intraoral photos of all the teeth
- Full-mouth X-rays
- A detailed questionnaire if evaluating concerns related to possible sleep apnea
- Periodontal probing to evaluate gum health
- A detailed consultation that will cover all of our findings and recommended treatment options
Once you’re ready to return home, you’ll be provided with a bag of useful oral hygiene goods. If the experience you had was pleasant, we do ask that you consider leaving us a review on Google, Facebook, or Yelp – patients will receive a $5 gift card in return! Additionally, any new patients who come to us through a referral from a current patient will receive a $25 credit, and the person who referred them will as well.
Many patients and families struggle to navigate their insurance benefits, but this process doesn’t have to be stressful with assistance from our team members here in Wethersfield, CT. Our practice is happy to take virtually ALL PPO insurance plans, and any necessary claims will be filed on your behalf by us to streamline the reimbursement process.
Our accepted insurances include the following:
- Delta Dental
- United Health Care
- Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Connection Dental
- Husky – under 21 only
Our practice is happy to work with CareCredit in order to offer our patients affordable, low-stress payment plans! This financial option is often perfect for those who are considering extensive treatment but cannot cover the cost of these procedures all at once. CareCredit offers coverage in several different lengths, some of which come with NO interest attached. To see if you qualify, please complete an application at the link below:
In-Office Dental Plan
If you and your family are not currently covered by dental insurance, our in-house Discount Dental Plan may be the ideal alternative. This type of financial aid offers many of the same valuable benefits as traditional insurance (such as free yearly exams and cleanings) without the frustrating deductibles, yearly maximums, and red tape – instead, patients simply pay a flat yearly fee to take advantage. To learn more about the particulars, please follow the link below. You can also contact our Wethersfield, CT office directly for an Enrollment Application.
