What’s Holding You Back From Visiting Your Federal Way Dentist?

16012 Social Post - Reactivation1We know the idea of booking your next dental hygiene cleaning and checkup might be low on your priority list.  Many people are anxious about visiting the dentist for a variety of reasons.  No matter what has held you back in the past, let us reassure you:  Here at Avalon Family Dentistry, we promise to make your needs and comfort our top priority!

You already know why it’s important to visit us at least every six months – not only can regular dental checkups with Dr. Josephine Lee keep your teeth and gums healthy, they can also help you maintain better overall health.

But we’re not going to lecture you on WHY you need to visit.  Instead, we’ll address a few of the things that may be holding you back from booking your next appointment.

TIME.

Full-time work, a long commute, running the kids to soccer practice…our Federal Way dental patients are BUSY!  It can be tough to squeeze anything extra into your schedule.  We understand!  We encourage our patients to try and pre-schedule appointments, because once it is there, it is easier to keep.  But if that is not an option for you, let us know of days that might work, and we will do our very best to accommodate you!

ANXIETY.

You may be anxious about your dental visit for a variety of reasons.  Let us put you at ease!  Your concerns are our concerns.  We promise to fully explain your options; you are in full control of your choice of treatment.  It at any time you’re nervous or uncomfortable in the chair, simply raise up your left hand, and we will take a break.

GUILT.

You know you need to visit at least every six months, but somehow time slipped away and it’s been a year…or two…or more.  Now you’re worried that when you finally visit, you’ll get the “raised eyebrow” and a lecture.  Let us reassure you – we will not lecture you.  Our focus is on your needs, and care is forwards, not backwards.

COST.

We are a preferred provider with the following insurance companies:  Delta Dental, Regence, Premera, Aetna, Principal, Assurant, and some United Concordia plans.

Additionally, we will fully explain the cost associated with your treatment upfront so there are no mystery charges or surprises later.  For more information about payment options and financing, visit our Patient Resource page.
