dental-treatments
We recognize that building a relationship with a patient necessitates cultivating trust, as trust is integral to each patient’s ability to make informed decisions about their treatment, as well as return for future appointments. We, at Lunn Dentistry, strive to make you feel as comfortable as possible, and encourage you to discuss your concerns or ask as many questions as you want. This helps aide in diminishing the “cycle of avoidance” often prevalent when patient’s neglect their dental care. Professional cleanings and exams are essential for keeping your mouth healthy, and we strongly encourage you to keep on track with your routine care.

dental-appointmentWe recommend you visit us twice a year for a checkup and cleaning, then as needed for periodontal and restorative dentistry. Early treatment, means less potential for pain, expense, and hassle, as well as the opportunity to provide conservative treatment. By immediately following through with your treatment plan, you’ll allow us to address dental problems early. We encourage you to schedule your next appointment with our Patient Advocates before leaving our office. For your convenience, we provide a free reminder service. You can choose the reminder option that best suits you; we have phone, email, or text reminders, designed to help you successfully keep your scheduled treatment plan.

In order to properly assess your dental health at the time of your appointment, we need to have an accurate understanding of your medical health as well. We are providing a link to a HIPPA SECURE SLEEP EXAM FORM for you to complete PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT. Receiving your SLEEP EXAM FORM prior to your appointment will allow us get to know you before your visit, as well as help you navigate your treatment payment options (such as; insurance co-payment amount, treatment eligibility for insurance reimbursement, Medicare Part B eligibility, secondary insurance eligibility, as well as treatment financing options) before you see Dr. Angela Garner Lunn.

Once you have completed the HIPPA SECURE form, click “SUBMIT”. Our office will receive an e-mail confirming you have completed your form. We will review and call you should we have any questions. Otherwise, you are all set for your appointment with Dr. Angela Garner Lunn.

If you are having difficulty completing the SLEEP EXAM FORM prior to your appointment, PLEASE NOTIFY OUR OFFICE IMMEDIATELY. We are happy to schedule an additional 30 minutes with one of our Patient Advocates who are happy to assist you in filling out your form before seeing Dr. Angela Garner Lunn.
