Individual insurance plans are many and varied. It is in your best interest to get the facts about your specific plan from your insurance company. We will be happy to work with you regarding insurance questions. Any major work required usually needs an estimate sent to your insurance company so that you will have all necessary info regarding a procedure before we start. Kathleen, at our front desk is an expert in these matters and will work with you regarding any questions you might have about insurance.
X-rays are safe and necessary. First visits will require a series of x-rays to properly diagnose problems such as cavities, peridontal disease and a host of other issues that may be present. This baseline will be monitored at regular intervals at your yearly recare exams. Any concerns with x-rays should be addressed with Dr Pettigrew. We have studies and literature regarding these issues that will put you at ease.
