Your First Visit
Once you’ve filled out your paperwork and been checked in by our friendly front desk staff, one of our dental assistants will take some quick x-rays to help us get an idea of the current state of your oral health. From there, you’ll be introduced to Dr. Oakey, who will spend a few minutes getting to know you and discussing your smile goals before giving your mouth a thorough examination. He’ll then explain his findings, talk about any treatments you may need, and develop a customized plan to ensure your smile stays healthy for years to come.
As much as we love spending time with our patients, we also aim to make your visits efficient. To help you save time at your appointment, please take a few minutes to fill out our patients forms beforehand. That way we can get an idea of your specific medical needs and concerns in order to deliver the most personalized care we can. Simply download our forms below, complete them, and bring them with you to our office on the day of your visit to speed up the check-in process!
We will gladly accept plans from several popular dental insurance providers. To make things easier on your end and ensure you’re getting the most out of your benefits, we’ll even do the work of filing your claims on your behalf. Often, you’ll be expected to pay for your care upfront and be reimbursed by your insurance company later. Make sure to call us ahead of time so we can provide you with an estimate of how much you can expect to pay out of pocket.

For our uninsured patients or those who need extensive treatments, we have another option. Rather than having to pay for the full cost of your treatment at once, you can apply for a low-to-no interest loan through CareCredit. This third-party company has helped countless patients fund their dental care by breaking up the price of their treatment into smaller monthly installments that can fit into just about anyone’s budget.
Under Medicaid and CHIP plans, children and eligible seniors typically receive full coverage for their dental care, but non-senior adult coverage varies from state to state. Unfortunately, adults in Texas generally only receive Medicaid dental coverage in the case of emergency dentistry. If you or a loved one qualifies for Medicaid or CHIP, both of which pay for a large percentage of the cost of preventive and restorative care, our team can help you maximize your coverage.
