Welcome to Sweet Smiles Family Dentistry and Orthodontics! We love nothing more than helping families all around the Tucson area straighten and enhance their smiles while also making sure their teeth and gums remain well-protected against decay and disease. While getting ready for your first appointment, we recommend that you review this page carefully so that you have a firm idea of what to expect. Call us if there’s anything you don’t understand or are curious about.
One of our front desk team members will greet you with a smile and provide you with the necessary paperwork. These forms help familiarize us with your current situation and your oral health history. In our treatment area, we’ll take X-rays and closely examine your teeth while discussing any worrisome symptoms you’ve noticed lately. After a thorough cleaning, we’ll schedule any necessary follow-up treatments to address specific dental problems.
Before you arrive at our dental office, you can fill out your new patient paperwork online. This can save you a lot of time on the day of your visit; all of the forms will already be complete, and you won’t have to worry about sitting in our waiting room while fumbling around with your insurance information.
If you’re already one of our patients, then you can take advantage of our online patient portal, which you can use to review your information and pay your bill when you’re ready. All personal information is kept as secure as possible, so feel free to use your online account to your convenience.
Do you not have dental insurance? Consider signing up for a KLEER® Membership plan. This program allows you to pick a plan that matches the needs of every member of your family. Get in touch with us to learn more about our in-house plans.
Another option for patients who don't currently have dental insurance or who need to split up the cost of a big treatment plan over several months is CareCredit! This type of financing offers little to NO interest (depending on the length of the payment plan) and plenty of flexibility, which means you can get your brand-new smile today and take care of the cost later in smaller, budget-friendly chunks.
Orthodontic treatments should always come at an affordable price. We can help you put together a payment plan based on your unique financial situation and preferences. You can select the initial payment you want to put down and the length of the term over which you’re willing to pay. Then you can see how much you’ll need to pay each month based on the parameters you set. On average, many patients pay around $183/mo. However, this will depend on your unique coverage. If there are any uncertainties about the cost, call us directly.
