If you’re brand-new to the Dental Center of Midlothian, welcome! Dr. Johnson is happy to make your acquaintance. The team can’t wait to get you set up as a new member of our dental family and hope that you’ll enjoy your future dental treatments. If you aren’t sure what to expect with your first visit, we’ve included a few sections to help you get prepared. This includes expectations for your first visit and relevant patient forms.
When you arrive, we’ll offer you a cold drink from our waiting room, whether that’s chilled or sparkling water, lemonade or Izze. One of our hygienists will bring you into the operatory, making sure that you’re comfortable and ready for treatment. Patients can watch TV during their treatment and make use of our blankets, heated neck pillows or noise-canceling headphones equipped with radio for improved comfort. Once your cleaning, x-rays and dental exams are completed, we’ll go over photos captured via our intraoral camera and discuss your recommended treatment.
We recommend that patients arrive 15 minutes ahead of their scheduled appointment time in order to fill out new patient forms. However, if you don’t want to fill out forms while at our office, you can easily do it at home! We provide new patients forms on our website so patients can download them directly! By simply printing and filling them out at home, you can save time during your visit.
Do you use health services through the VA? You should know that not only can you access health care through the VA’s network, but you can also visit approved, non-VA medical providers thanks to the MISSION Act. At the Dental Center of Midlothian, we are one of those approved non-VA medical providers, also known as “community care providers.” Even if a certain type of health service isn’t provided by the VA, you can still go to a non-VA provider and get the service you need using your VA coverage.
Dental insurance makes it easier to pay for dental care, especially when it’s preventive. Our dental office accepts all PPO dental plans. We also accept MetLife insurance plans from Midlothian City employees. Our office manager Maxine is more than happy to discuss your benefits and ensure that you’re doing everything you need to maximize your coverage. We are currently in-network with the following dental plans:
Do you lack dental insurance but still need to get treatment completed? The Dental Center of Midlothian works with multiple third-party financing programs to make paying for dental care more manageable. This includes CareCredit, LendingPoint and Wells Fargo, they provide payment plans with little to zero interest attached. Our dental office team will work with you in determining which option works best for you and your family.
For added convenience, we’re happy to now offer online payments through the portal below! This means that you can cover the cost of you and your family’s dental care without having to make a time-consuming phone call or go out of your way to visit the office in-person. And don’t worry – your personal information is always kept secure during the process. If you run into any problems, don’t hesitate to let our team know so that we can assist you.
Even if you don’t have dental insurance, that doesn’t mean you can’t get the basic preventive care that you and your family needs. Our office’s In-House Dental Plan makes it easy to get preventive cleanings, exams, and X-rays for adults, children and patients in need of gum disease therapy. Not only is paying for dental care in this way more affordable, but you can start using it the day that you enroll and you can save 15 percent on all services, even treatments that would not typically be covered through dental insurance.
