OUR PRACTICE MODEL AND PHILOSOPHY
The hallmark of our practice has been our effort and ability to deliver the high standards of care found at hospital-based facilities while protecting the tradition of a small family-oriented office. Our doctors practice exclusively at Newburyport Oral Surgery and make ogoing investments in performance improvement programs, technology, infrastructure, and staff education.
The vast majority of cases are conducted in the office. Typical office-based procedures range from dental extractions to more complex jaw procedures. We are a conservative practice and will conduct major maxillofacial trauma, tumor, and reconstructive operations as hospital cases.
We regard oral and maxillofacial surgery as a healthcare profession, not a business enterprise. Our practice style and related decision making will always reflect this philosophy. Our primary mission is to provide impeccable care to all patients and to represent our profession with honor and dignity.
We recommend for new patients to register online or arrive 30 minutes early to complete all necessary registration documents. It is also helpful for patients to bring a list of all their current medications, any pertinent x-rays, and medical/dental notes with them. This will expedite the consultation process. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or designated legal guardian.
Patients scheduled for surgery will receive specific pre-operative instructions which are based on their specific medical history and type of procedure and anesthetic planned. This is extremely important so please call the office directly if you have any questions.
Like most surgical practices, we often attend to unscheduled emergency patients and perform emergency procedures. This may cause delays in our schedule and we appreciate your understanding and patience.
INSURANCE AND FINANCIAL POLICY
We participate with many dental and medical plans and will work closely with you to maximize your insurance coverage. This is not a guarantee of payment by the insurance company. At the time of your consultation, you will be given an estimate of what your insurance plan will cover and what your out of pocket portion will be. Your estimated out of pocket portion will be due at the time of surgery. It is only an estimate. Based upon what is eventually paid by your insurance plan, you may receive either a bill or a refund check from us. Please understand that it is your responsibility to inform us about any changes in your insurance prior to your scheduled procedure.
For your convenience, we accept checks, Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express. We also participate with Care Credit.
Please call us if you have any questions concerning your estimated isurance coverage and your out-of-pocket portion at 978-465-3400. We can also provide you with more details about Care Credit.
