Q: Do I need to bring anything to my first appointment?

A: Yes. With our online forms, you do not have to come to your appointment early to fill out paperwork. Although, we ask that you arrive a few minutes early if you have not yet filled out your patient forms. You should also bring with you a medications list and your insurance card.

Q: Is Dr. Turman a preferred provider with any insurance companies?

A: Yes! We are in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Delta Dental. We do, however, accept all insurances and will do our best to maximize our patient’s insurance benefits.

Q: What will the hygienist do at my first appointment as a new patient?

A: During a new patient’s first appointment, our dentist will provide a thorough examination of your mouth and necessary X-rays. The examination may include a soft tissue exam, oral cancer screening, TMJ exam, and gum health assessment. Then, our hygienist will provide you with a cleaning and we will give an estimate of the cost involved before any treatment.

Q: Can I access any patient forms prior to my appointment?

A:  Yes, our forms can be found on our New Patient Forms page under Resources.
