Patient Resources

We value your time and make every effort to provide information on our website for your convenience. For additional questions or concerns, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you. The following links provide forms and details on our office, dental team and payment options. We recommend that you take a moment to complete our online patient forms to make your first visit to our office as efficient and pleasant as possible.

First Visit: What To Expect

Your initial visit with us will last approximately 90 minutes. This allows us ample time to assess your oral health, take necessary diagnostic imaging and consult with you on your dental health concerns and possible cosmetic goals. Your dental hygienist will discuss your personal oral hygiene habits, making recommendations as needed to help you keep your smile healthy between visits.

Your initial visit may include the following:

  • Dental examination
  • Diagnostic imaging: x-rays, etc. as needed
  • Periodontal and oral cancer screening
  • Occlusal analysis
  • Consultation with Dr. Lotardo
  • Professional dental cleaning (if time allows)

If our dentists recommend additional cosmetic or restorative dental services, we will schedule you for a follow up appointment before you leave.

Payment and Insurance

Dr. Lotardo accepts a wide range of payment options as well as offers third party financing through CareCredit. We participate with several dental insurance carriers and file most all others as an out-of-network provider, helping you to maximize your benefits.

We work with patients to ensure they receive the dental care they need and desire within their budget, phasing treatment plans to accommodate the use of HSA/FSA dollars. View our Payment and Insurance page for more.
