New Patient Information
Welcome to Bringing Smiles! Dr. Athar and his team look forward to helping you determine the ideal plan for improving not only your smile, but your overall quality of life. Before you or your loved one’s initial visit, we ask that you read the following information about what to expect. Any questions or concerns? Please don’t hesitate to contact any of our DFW area locations.
Your First Visit
Dr. Athar’s top goal during an initial appointment is to gain a complete understanding of the patient’s specific needs and goals. A clinical evaluation, detailed photographs, and comprehensive X-rays are used to gather this information. If we determine that treatment would be beneficial, Dr. Athar will go over his recommendations with the patient (or the patient’s parent), taking the time to review estimated cost and available financial options as well.
Our team members will also be happy to show patients and their families around the office and introduce them to everyone during the first visit! We want you to feel comfortable with us, and establishing a friendly relationship by the end of the appointment is always our goal.
If you’d like to save some valuable time, consider completing all of the necessary new patient paperwork before even arriving! Just follow the links below, print out the documents, and write in your information whenever you have a spare moment at home. Once you’ve turned in the forms to our team, your appointment can get started with only minimal waiting.
At Bringing Smiles, we enjoy making this important treatment as affordable as possible for our valued patients without sacrificing any of the quality you and your family deserve. That’s why we work with virtually every insurance plan, personally handling any claims that need to be filed and maximizing the reimbursements you deserve. Our knowledgeable team understands this system very well, and they’ll be happy to clarify any points of confusion with you so that the financial aspects of your treatment are never unpleasant surprises.
Braces are a big commitment, both in terms of time and cost. That’s why Dr. Athar is happy to offer flexible financing right here in-office! Instead of having to pay all at once, we can simplify your final bill into smaller sections that span over two years. There is no interest attached for added convenience. These payments can blend in well with a variety of budgets, so don’t hesitate to let us know if you’re interested.
