Dental First Associates
When you visit our practice, you’ll find that our dental services extend well beyond the procedure itself. We try to educate our patients and provide all the necessary tools so that they are fully prepared to maintain their beautiful smiles for a lifetime. As in any field, Dental technology and techniques change rapidly to become more efficient and comfortable. Dr. Gupta and his team are frequently attending continuing education courses and seminars to remain in touch with the newest advances in dentistry. All patients deserve modern techniques, materials, and methods that are backed by research and clinical success! We believe that continually enhancing our education will allow for higher patient comfort, better preventive strategies, increased longevity of treatment, greater patient satisfaction, and a smile that is natural and healthy.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will gladly bill your insurance for you. We accept assignment of benefits from most insurances, meaning that your insurance will pay our office directly for your services. However there are some insurances, that only allow payment to be sent to the subscriber (you). If this is the case we will do our best to notify you in advance. Any claim not paid by your insurance will become your responsibility.
New Patient Forms
If you are a new patient to our office, the below link contains our new patient bundle with forms that will need to be filled out when you arrive at our office. Printing them, filling them out and bringing them with you will allow us to attend to your medical needs more quickly than completing them on your arrival. Thank you and please call our office if you have any questions at all.
The Dental First team believes that everyone should be able to have access to dental care regardless of their financial situation. We try to give you many treatment plan options tailored to your specific needs and prioritize treatment as needed. Every person is different, so the cost of treatment will vary from patient to patient. We will discuss the fees and help you choose a payment option before you begin treatment so that you know exactly what to expect without any surprises.
We offer several financial options:
- Debit & Credit Cards
- In-House Dental Membership Plan called “Dent-Assure” (We try to offer our patients without any insurance benefits a reasonable way to be able to afford their dental care.)
- FSAs & HSAs
- All major dental Insurances
We try to obtain all of you dental benefits from your insurance company before your first visit with us and will gladly file your dental insurance claims for you. Since we have a lot of experience with insurance companies we will do all we can to maximize your benefits. We accept both in-network and out-of- network plans. Although we are Preferred Providers for most major insurance companies, including:
- Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Delta Dental
- Dental Network
- Federal plans
- United Healthcare
- United Concordia
CareCredit has worked very well for our patients to help them receive needed treatments. It’s a great option to help break up the cost of your treatment into low monthly payments with several different term lengths. CareCredit will pay the cost of your treatment so you as the patient do not have to pay anything out of pocket up front. They will setup a no interest payment plan for you if you pay in full by the end of the promotional period as Dental First pays your interest! To learn more and to apply, visit www.carecredit.com or call the office and we help you apply.
Dr. Gupta and his staff always provide awesome care! From the front desk to the dental assistants to Dr. Gupta himself, I've never met a group of incredible folks who provide such awesome care to their patients....Also Dr. Gupta does NOT push services on you that you don't need. If he mentions that you need something done, then you truly need that work done. This is a great group and I will give them 10 stars! Because they are all that awesome! I'll be back to visit soon and I'll let my co-workers/friends know all about this place!
