Our team at NU Dental of Barnegat is excited to meet you and your family! If you’re looking to schedule your first appointment, we suggest that you read this page beforehand. We’ve outlined important information about dental insurance coverage and what to expect during your first visit below so you can have a hassle-free and enjoyable appointment. If you have any questions or run into an issue, feel free to call our dental office.
When you check in at the front desk, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly team members who will collect your new patient forms and guide you back to your treatment room. There, you’ll meet your dental hygienist and Dr. G, who will capture X-rays of your mouth as well as a thorough visual and tactile examination. If we spot anything concerning, we’ll speak with you about it and create a treatment plan to take care of it. Before you leave, we’ll professionally clean and polish your smile to make sure you leave feeling refreshed and healthy.
We ask all patients to complete new patient forms at the initial visit because they provide us with important context regarding your oral and overall health. They also tell us what to keep in mind during your initial exam and whether or not we need to focus on specific areas of your mouth that you may be concerned about. Once an appointment has been booked, all patients will receive forms to fill out electronically. Patient forms are also linked below as an alternative if you do not receive them electronically.
At NU Dental of Barnegat, we make receiving the oral healthcare you need easy, affordable, and accessible. One of the ways we’re able to do this is by accepting health insurance! We’re happy to file insurance claims on your behalf to help you maximize your benefits and avoid out-of-pocket costs whenever we’re able to. We’re also proud to be in-network with many major insurance plans. If you’re wondering whether we’re in-network with your plan, don’t hesitate to call our dental office!
If you don’t have dental insurance or are looking for a simpler and more reliable alternative to insurance, we offer a straight-forward and easy-to-understand in-house membership savings plan as well. It comes in Silver, Gold, and Platinum tiers and makes all of our services more affordable. Plus, you won’t have to worry about any age limits, annual maximums or deductibles, or trying to understand complicated jargon. If you’re interested in learning more or enrolling, be sure to call our dental office and we’ll provide you with more details.
If you want to get a cosmetic dental service that isn’t covered by your insurance plan, we also offer additional financing through CareCredit. This is a trusted, third-party financer that offers manageable monthly payment plans with little-to-no interest. That way, you can receive the treatments you need without having to worry about breaking your monthly budget. To learn whether you qualify, you can click on the link below to apply.
