New Patients – Dublin, OH
Preparing You For Your First Visit
As a new patient to Distinctive Smiles of Dublin, allow us to welcome you! As a dental office that cares deeply for those living in and around the Dublin area, we are committed to providing exceptional, first-rate service and treatment. Instead of leaving dental patients feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and scared about their oral health, we aim to change the way people view the dentist. To ensure that your first visit is seamless, we’ve included some information below for you to review. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our dental office.
Your First Dental Visit
Your patient concierge, Katie, will invite you into the personal consultation room to discuss your health history and any concerns you may have about the health or appearance of your smile. One of our team members will take the necessary X-rays, and then Dr. Buck will spend about an hour performing your thorough, comprehensive dental exam, including a TMJ evaluation, periodontal assessment, bite analysis, and oral cancer screening. Several photos of your teeth will be taken to further evaluate your dental health and have a record of your current dental condition. If your mouth is free of any periodontal issues, one of our gentle hygienists will perform a complete tooth cleaning at that time.
If comprehensive care is recommended, the patient is asked to return at a later time for a consultation to view their pictures and discuss any recommended treatment. This allows you to discover the true condition of your teeth and decide the best treatment for you. This complimentary consultation takes place in a quiet, private environment so you can make an informed, relaxed decision.

Dental Insurance Welcome
We will work with your insurance company, and our dental office will file all insurance information. No matter what your coverage situation is, we will always work to maximize your dental benefits and ensure that dental treatment fits your budget and lifestyle.
CareCredit Financing Available
Need help with payment for your multiple treatments? Are you uninsured? If so, you can enroll in a low or no-interest payment plan through CareCredit. As a financier that promises no surprise fees, you can sign up and better manage your budget in a way that minimizes stress and encourages proper care.
In-House Membership Plan
For patients who are uninsured and want to avoid the red tape of dental insurance, we are pleased to offer an in-house membership plan. By paying a low monthly fee, you can gain access to preventive care as well as discounts on other available services. Not only does this make dentistry more affordable, but you can avoid many of the difficulties that can come with using dental insurance (i.e., copays, deductibles, annual maximums, pre-authorizations, etc.).
