At Long Family Dental, our team is proud to have a decades-long legacy of bright smiles and happy patients! If you’re new to our dental office, then welcome – we hope your upcoming appointment will be the first one of many. Dr. Chris and Dr. Bob serves patients from Cleburne, Midlothian, and other nearby communities, and we take pride in offering unparalleled service from the moment you first call in to schedule a visit. Keep reading below to learn more about what to expect when becoming our patient, and don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
At a new patient’s initial appointment, our team’s top priority is simply getting to know them. Our dentists will want to perform a comprehensive examination of your current oral health and discuss your reasons for visiting in detail – do you have specific goals you’d like to pursue when it comes to healthier, brighter teeth? Are you experiencing concerning symptoms or oral discomfort that need our attention? By understanding how we can serve you better, we look forward to coming up with a fully personalized treatment plan and leaving you feeling confident about your smile’s future.
As comfortable as our waiting room is, we know that patients aren’t exactly eager to spend lots of time in it while waiting to meet with the dentists. To save time, you can download all of the necessary new patient paperwork at the links below, print them out at home, and complete them at your convenience. When you arrive in-person, just hand them over to our front desk team and we can expedite your initial check-in process. If you aren’t able to download the forms, let us know – we can mail or fax them too.
At Long Family Dental, we strongly believe that high-quality oral healthcare should also be affordable for budget-minded families throughout Cleburne. Our dental office is in-network with many major PPO insurances, including the ones listed below:
Do you not see your specific coverage listed? No problem! We accept out-of-network plans as well in many cases and can file claims on the patient’s behalf, maximizing your deserved reimbursements.
If you do not currently have dental insurance or are interested in pursuing an extensive dental procedure that would be difficult to pay for all at once, low-interest financing through CareCredit is a highly affordable and low-stress option! Several payment plans lengths are available so that patients and families can choose the one that best fits their monthly budget. To see if you qualify, please start by completing an application at the link below.
