Tips and tricks to help your appointments run more efficiently

At PDAO, we know your time is very valuable. We want to make your visits here at PDAO as efficient as possible. We strive to provide excellent oral healthcare for your child, but we want to make sure we are creating a check-in process that also allows for a wonderful parent experience.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Here are some things that you can do to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible:

  1. Arrive at least 15 minutes early for any appointment. This allows enough time for you to update any necessary information and paperwork, this includes consent forms. (Current orthodontic appointments will not need updates).
  1. Fill out your new patient paperwork and any updates ONLINE. We will ask you to update information at most appointments and this can easily be completed at home by logging into your account. If you need help with signing into your account, please call our office. 479-582-0600 (All paperwork can be updated up to 2-3 weeks prior to the upcoming appointment. If that appointment is rescheduled or changed, new updates may be required). Click Here
  1. Bring all insurance information, including your card, with you to every appointment. We may request additional information for the person who holds the insurance. This person is known as the “subscriber”. We will sometimes request the subscriber’s social security number, date of birth, and place of employment.

These small steps can help insure that you and your child are seen in a timely manner.

“KIDS-TIME”

Please note that we operate on a philosophy known as “kids-time”—some kids may take longer per appointment than others. While we may have to spend a longer amount of time on the child before yours due to cooperation or other factors, we will offer the same grace and flexibility with your child should the need arise.

WE APPRECIATE YOU

We want to thank you for continuing to trust us with your family’s oral healthcare needs, and we look forward to seeing you at your next appointment. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at 479-582-0600.
