Are you ready to schedule yours or a family member’s first appointment with us? Before you do, we encourage you to read through this page of helpful information to learn more about what dental insurance and payment methods we accept, how you can prepare for your visit, and what to expect. If you have any lingering questions that you need answered or need help understanding anything on this page, don’t hesitate to call us!
We encourage all new patients to fill out any forms at home, before they come to their appointment. As soon as you walk in, you’ll be met by one of our patient care coordinators. They’ll take your paperwork and collect your insurance information to input into our system. We’ll then take you back to one of our treatment rooms to capture X-ray images of your mouth so we can see if any issues are developing below the surface. Dr. Snapir will introduce himself and ask you a few questions to get to know you a little better before receiving your thorough checkup and cleaning by one of our dental hygienists.
We recommend that everyone who is visiting us for the first time download and fill out our new patient forms at home before they get to our office. This will save you 15 minutes during your first appointment and allow you to comfortably complete them in your own house instead of our waiting room.
At The Dental Smile Center, we’re proud to accept all PPO dental insurance plans and do everything we’re able to maximize your benefits and keep your pockets full! We are also happy to see patients with HMO plans and even offer complimentary consultations in these cases.

In addition to accepting all PPO dental insurance plans, we’re also happy to accept patients with Medicaid and Denti-Cal. We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality, affordable dental care that they can trust. We always try to get the most out of your benefits as well, so be sure to give us a call to schedule your next appointment! If you have any questions about your Medicaid or Denti-Cal coverage, you can also ask us over the phone.
For our patients who are looking into getting services that aren’t covered by insurance benefits or who don’t have dental insurance, we also offer third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub. This allows you to create an easy, manageable payment plan with little-to-no interest so you can pay off your treatment over the course of several months.
