Welcome to Afton Endodontics! Our team looks forward to addressing your concerns, alleviating discomfort, and helping you return to everyday life with a stronger, healthier smile. Before your first scheduled appointment, please take a few moments to review the following information. We want patients to feel confident and well-informed regarding what to expect when they arrive! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to give us a call in Concord, NC.
When the need for a root canal is clear, our specialists will strive to provide this service in the first visit to save patients valuable time. We will also make sure that they know what to expect ahead of time so that there are no unexpected “surprises,” including a confident price estimate. We offer a coffee and tea bar (water is available as well) if patients end up having to wait at all, although these instances are rare – punctuality is very important to us. Once the treatment is complete, all post-operative instructions will be reviewed thoroughly with the patient and a final report will be sent to their general dentist (if referred). We will also call you the following day to see how you’re feeling!
Alternatively, patients can expect their first visit here in Concord to be an in-depth consultation and evaluation of the tooth. Our goal will be to provide a definite diagnosis regrading whether or not further endodontic treatment is necessary.
Your proposed fee for endodontic care will be affected by the overall complexity of the treatment plan. During your first visit, our team will always take the time to discuss the estimated length of your care and if numerous visits will be required before any actual treatment begins. Please keep in mind that payment will be required at the time of treatment . If you have dental insurance benefits available, we do ask that patients cover 50% of their fee and their deductible upfront. Afton Endodontics is not an in-network provider for any insurance plans, but we will file claims on the patient’s behalf and help you maximize your deserved reimbursement for added convenience.
Virtually all dental insurances are welcomed here at Afton Endodontics, and we will be happy to file claims on your behalf on the same day as your treatment. Our friendly and knowledgeable team members will check your specific benefits and give you a call back as soon as possible with a precise estimate of your co-pay. Some co-pays do require that patients cover any deductible costs that haven’t been satisfied yet. While Delta Dental and BCBS of NC will send reimbursement checks to you (the patient) directly, other companies will forward the benefits directly to our practice.
If you don’t currently have dental insurance, that shouldn’t have to prevent you from receiving much-needed endodontic treatment. Our practice is also happy to work with CareCredit, which offers third-party financing in a flexible and affordable manner. Multiple lengths of payment plans are available, some of which come with NO interest attached. Better yet, this type of financial assistance can be used to even cover services that wouldn’t receive insurance benefits anyway.
