Your first visit will be tailored to your individual needs and past dental history. You will receive a complete examination including an oral cancer exam, and a review of your medical history. We may then clean your teeth and take diagnostic x-rays. Please bring previous dental records and a list of current medications, so that we may provide you with optimal care.

CHECKUPS AND CLEANINGS: Preventive dental care requires regular checkups. We urge all of our patients to come in regularly. For most patients we recommend checkups every six months. Some patients may require checkup intervals as frequently as 3 month.

EMERGENCIES: If you or your family is ever in need of emergency care, Dr. Pels-Wetzel will provide it promptly. If you have a problem, please call as early in the day as possible and Dr. Pels-Wetzel will see you that day, if needed. After hours, please call the office to get the pager number of the doctor.

SAFETY, COMFORT, AND QUALITY CARE: Our office has modern equipment in a comfortable, home-like atmosphere. The entire staff attends continuing education courses on the latest techniques and materials to provide you with the best possible care. We are experienced in the fields of preventative care, restorations, bonding, sealing, implants, simple extractions, crowns, and bridges. We also use the latest in special sterilization and barrier techniques to assure a safe and clean office.

FINANCIAL POLICY AND INSURANCE: We want you to understand what dentistry you need, how it will be done, and how much it will cost. If you are not covered by insurance, you will be asked to make payment at the time of treatment. If you are covered by insurance, we will submit the insurance claim for you. However, we will estimate what the insurance will cover and ask for the amount not covered at the time of treatment. We do not have control over insurance companies; you are ultimately responsible for your own bill. Please bring in a filled out and signed insurance form to your visit. Special financial arrangements for crowns, bridges, and extensive treatment will be discussed with you.

ABOUT OUR STAFF: Dr. Pels-Wetzel is proud of her staff. We look forward to provide quality dentistry for you.
