Dental Patient Information – Chevy Chase, MD
Patient-Focused Care Made Easy
It is our goal to ensure that you remain comfortable and stress-free during your appointment. This is why Dr. Yu goes to great lengths to provide top-level dentistry in addition to honest, transparent communication. To prepare for your initial appointment, we’ve provided some beneficial information below for you to review. Feel free to take a look and contact Dr. Yu with any questions.
Your First Dental Visit
Dr. Yu will spend during your initial visit, collecting your medical history and various data before taking digital X-rays of your teeth and gums as well as photographs of your oral anatomy. This will allow for her to better evaluate your teeth, gums, joints, muscles, airways, and other structures. Based on her findings, she will recommend appropriate treatment options, including the type of hygiene visit required. Before checking out and scheduling your next appointment, you will receive a new patient gift and a goody bag to take with you.
New Patient Forms
At Avant Dentistry, we want your experience to be seamless. This is why we make it easy to download our forms online, print them out, fill them out at home, and bring them with you to your appointment. This cuts down on the amount of time spent in our lobby, allowing your visit to be smooth and on time.
Dental Insurance Welcome
We currently welcome your dental insurance and are in-network with most United Concordia, Guardian, and GEHA plans. Dr. Yu will file your claim as a courtesy, so you can avoid the overwhelming and often confusing aspects of dental insurance. We want all our patients to appreciate the high-quality care they receive at our dental office, which is why you can expect nothing but the very best.
