At Dr. Stephanie Mullins DDS in Lee's Summit, MO, we want your first visit as a new patient — and every one to follow — to be as relaxing and seamless as possible.
What to Expect During Your New Patient Visit
During your first visit, our team will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Fully examine your teeth and gums
- Take x-rays of your mouth
- Check for cavities or early signs of tooth decay
- Clean and polish your teeth
- Create a customized treatment plan and answer your questions
Please complete these new patient forms before your first appointment and remember to bring along your insurance card, if applicable.
We are committed to providing you with the best possible care. If you have dental insurance, we are happy to help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. In order to achieve these goals, we need your assistance, and your understanding of our payment policy.
Patient portion is due in full at the time services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards, cash, and personal checks. Also, we participate with CareCredit to help those patients who desire a payment plan. Arrangements for CareCredit should be made prior to your first appointment. After your insurance claim has been processed, you will be billed for any existing remaining balance. If you would like to apply for CareCredit, you can click this link to be taken directly to their secure application site.
Even if predetermination of benefits was given from your insurance carrier, it is possible that after treatment is provided, there are no insurance benefits payable. Stephanie L. Mullins DDS, MS, LLC has absolutely no power or leverage to deal with the insurance carrier. Only the employee or the contract purchasers have that power. Any complaints about benefits, payment, or coverage should be directed to your HR department.
This office will submit both primary and secondary insurance claims as a service to the patient; however, any secondary insurance plan will be authorized to pay the patient directly. The patient’s portion collected on the date of service will be based SOLELY on the primary dental insurance plan and it will be the patient’s responsibility to ensure receipt of payment from any secondary dental insurances.
If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at 816.524.9800. Many times, a simple telephone call will resolve any issues.
