New to Willis Dental?
It starts with a phone call or email! Most patients are concerned, first of all on what type of appointment they will have when they visit a dental office, and what is the cost.
Salem Oregon Dentist Dr. David Willis at Willis Dental values all of our patients and understands that each patient will have different needs.
Our Front office team are skilled at defining this in the first phone call that you make to our office. They will start by collecting information about what type of appointment is needed, what concerns you may have and financial considerations.
If you do not have insurance, we are happy to give an estimate of what the cost may be for that first appointment and answer any financial questions. If financial arrangements are needed, our Financial Coordinator will review your options once Dr. Willis has determine your dental needs and a treatment plan has been decided upon.
For those patients with dental insurance, we will gather your information as to the subscriber’s name, ID number and name of the dental insurance carrier. We will check on the dental benefit and give a courtesy call back to explain your dental benefits to you. Dental benefits are usually covered on a percentage of the fee. The fee can be based on UCR (usual and customary) or Insurance network participation by the doctor.
Dr. Willis is a preferred provider (PPO/EPO) for many of the insurance companies. The best way to know if he is a provider with your dental insurance carrier is to give us a call with the appropriate information. We are always happy to check with your insurance company for network participation.
