Patient Information

Thank you for visiting the web site of Dr. Jeffrey T. Lodl. Our site provides important information that will help you become familiar with our practice. We appreciate this opportunity to introduce ourselves and look forward to providing you with quality dental care.

Scheduling

We are open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 8am-5pm. We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have pain or an emergency situation, we will make every attempt to see you that day.

We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact our office provides many types of dental services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure and when emergency cases arise can also add delays.

Please call us at 303-424-0767 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.


First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be performed the same day as the consultation.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.

X-Rays

We use Digital Radiography instead of traditional photographic film. Digital Radiography provides better clarity and detail with the almost instantaneous development of images on a digital display. Digital Radiography typically reduces radiation exposure by 75%.

If your previous dentist or physician has taken film x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to our office prior to your visit.

New Patient Forms

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to enter your New Patient Registration and Medical History information into our computer. Be sure to alert the office if you have any medical conditions that may be of concern prior to treatment or surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are taking any medications (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

Financial

Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Charges are payable at the time of treatment.

We accepts payments by check, credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover), or through CareCredit.

If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior to receiving service.

Additionally, we will submit all insurance claims for you. We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within 30 days.


Insurance

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service.

As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
