Your First Visit
You’ll start your initial appointment in our waiting room, where Celes (our receptionist) will warmly greet you and ensure that all of the necessary paperwork is completed. Then, our hygienist Dee will escort you back to the treatment operatory and capture X-rays while also discussing your dental history in plenty of detail. This is followed by full periodontal charting and professional teeth cleaning. At that point, it's time for Dr. Giron to arrive! She’ll explain her treatment philosophy to you and discuss any concerns you may have about your dental and overall health; this is followed by a comprehensive examination and then a detailed breakdown of any treatments she would like to recommend to you.
If you decide that you’d like to move forward with treatment, you’ll be brought back to meet with Celes at the front desk. She’ll go over fees, dental insurance, and scheduling before saying goodbye. Every step along the way, our tight-knit team will be doing their best to truly listen to what you want and need!
ABQ Wholistic Dentistry is an in-network provider for Delta Dental and MetLife, and we can also file claims on the patient’s behalf for many other dental insurance plans. Our knowledgeable team knows all the in’s and out’s of this system, so don’t hesitate to ask us if you’re unsure about what your specific plan covers or how you can maximize your available benefits.
If you don’t currently have dental insurance or would like to pursue extensive treatment, payment plans are another option for making your overall cost more affordable. Our dental office is happy to work with CareCredit, a trusted third-party financing company that offers several flexible payback schedules for patients to choose from. The shortest plans even come with NO interest attached! To see if you qualify, please complete an application at the link below.
As soothing and comfortable as our waiting room is, we know that patients are much more interested in meeting with the dentist as soon as possible. That’s why we’re happy to save you some time by offering all of the necessary new patient paperwork here online! Just follow the link below to download the forms, print them out, and complete them in the comfort of your own home before your appointment is scheduled to begin. Once you arrive in-person, just hand them over to our team, and we’ll be able to expedite your check-in process.
