We strive to stay on schedule with all of our patients’ appointments and also to be respectful of your time. We ask that you do the same by being on time for your scheduled appointment and take into consideration travel time as well as filling out forms once you arrive. We recommend that you arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow for the check in process. Although uncommon, please be aware that dental emergencies do arise throughout the day, which may delay or extend your appointment. This is the exception, not the norm, and we will advise you immediately if there are any changes to your appointment.
On your first visit to Dr. Daniel Bishop's office, you will be greeted warmly by our front desk staff, and then you will be asked to fill out some initial paperwork. If you would like to save time, you can download the forms, print them, fill them out at home, and bring them with you for your first visit. Also, if you have an insurance card and any specific medications you are taking, we ask you to bring those with you as well. After your paperwork is done, one of our hygienists will take you back to our treatment room and go over your dental and medical history. She will then do a brief examination of your mouth, charting existing teeth and prior dental work done. She will then take a series of digital radiographs to check for decay and overall condition of your gums. Then, she will take measurements around your gums, checking for gum disease, and then proceed to clean and polish your teeth.
Once the preliminary inspection is complete, Dr. Daniel Bishop will do a more thorough examination. He will check for tooth decay, missing or broken fillings, periodontal disease, and also oral cancer screening. He will then make recommendations for treatment based on his findings and go over any questions or concerns you may have. Finally, if you do need additional treatment, we will schedule a follow-up appointment for you to come back. We will also give you the option of scheduling your next 6-month checkup, and we'll give you a reminder card for your next visit.
We expect all patients to arrive on time for scheduled appointments. We have a pretty full schedule and if you are more than 15 minutes late, we may need to reschedule your appointment. As a courtesy to our other patients, please call us if you are going to be more than 15 minutes late. When you set up an appointment, we reserve that time slot especially for you. If you need to reschedule an appointment, we ask that you give us a minimum of 24 hours’ notice so we can schedule other patients for that time. If you don't give us 24 hours’ notice, you may be charged a fee based on the type of appointment and amount of time we block for you.
We accept a variety of insurance providers and endeavor to accommodate our patients' request. Please call our office at [phone] to see if we are currently working with your insurance provider.
