What to Expect on Your First Visit
When you arrive for your first visit, you'll get a comprehensive health risk assessment and a complete oral examination (including head and neck cancer screenings, bone level measurements and gum attachment levels). If you have current x-rays through another dentist, we will request them from your referring dentist.
We schedule patients on an appointment basis. This allows us to ensure each patient gets adequate time so that we can treat all of their needs. If our weekday appointment hours don't work for you, we also offer the option of Saturday morning appointments.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday: 8:00am-5:00pm
For after-hours emergencies, we have a 24/7 emergency answering service. If you have an after-hours emergency, please leave your name and telephone number so that Dr. Jacobson can return your call as soon as he is notified.
We do not double-schedule appointments, so please make every effort to arrive for your schedule appointment with us. If you are unable to do so, please call our staff at any time by dialing 816-444-7787. No charge will be assessed providing that you cancel your appointment at least 48 hours in advance so that we may make your time available to another patient.
We strive to assist you by working with most insurance companies, but it is important to note that while we will help the insured in completing the dental insurance forms, we should not be expected to accept undue delay in payment. Dental insurance is designed to assist the patient, but any inconvenience caused by an insurance company is the patient's responsibility, not that of the periodontal office.
Feel free to refer friends and family members. However, a referral is not necessary for new patients to schedule an appointment with us.
We hope that the information given here has been helpful to you. If you have read the above information and still have questions, please give us a call at 816-444-7787 and we will be happy to assist you with any other questions you may have or schedule you for an appointment.
