For Patients – Vienna, VA
What to Know Prior to Your Visit
We’re incredibly happy that you’re considering Tyson Smiles for all of your dental care needs. As you learn about our services and team members, we hope you choose us as your next dental home. If you decide to schedule your next appointment, please take a brief moment to learn how you can prepare for your next visit. Everything you need to know, including financing, your first visit, and patient forms can be read about in more detail below.
Part of ensuring that your dental care experience is fully personalized is having you fill out a new patient form for our office to review in more detail. These forms ask about your previous medical history as well as give you a chance to highlight any concerns you have about your dental health before you meet Dr. Barakat in-person. When you arrive, please take a few minutes to fill out this form and hand it to our front desk.
Your First Visit
When you first arrive at the practice, you’ll be warmly greeted by one of our team members sitting at the front desk. You’ll be handed new patient paperwork to fill out. Upon completion, you’ll be asked to come to one of our operatories and meet Dr. Barakat directly. At this point, he will perform a detailed exam of your mouth and other oral structures and recommend treatments if necessary. If you have any questions about your oral health or our practice, don’t hesitate to ask!
When you have dental insurance, paying for your basic dental treatments can be a lot less confusing and far more affordable. Overall, it’s better than having to pay for your dental care costs out-of-pocket, which can be notoriously high depending on the services that you need. At Tyson Smiles, we are in-network with Delta Dental and Aetna, two of the most common dental insurance providers available today. If you have questions about your current coverage, we’ll do our best to help you out!
Even if you do not have dental insurance, that doesn’t mean you should have to skip your routine dental exams and cleanings. We also offer third-party financing options that let you pay for care in more manageable chunks. These monthly payments often do not carry any interest, which means you don’t have to go into severe debt just to get your necessary treatments completed. We’ll walk you through the process and confirm if you’re eligible for this program when you arrive.
In-House Savings Plan
If you do not have dental insurance and you’d rather keep payment for your dental treatments in the practice, you’ll be happy to learn about our in-house savings plan. This program helps you pay for basic preventive treatments for one flat rate. There’s no waiting period associated with your plan and no additional co-pays to afford or deductibles to meet. Getting your exams, cleanings, X-rays, and other forms of preventive care has never been easier!
