Adolescents and Adults
Dr. Bray and his team provide a wide range of services for adolescents and adults, including:
A root canal is a specialized filling which replaces the dead or diseased inner core of a tooth. In many instances, working with an endodontist, we can save a tooth that otherwise would need to be extracted. Afterwards, Dr. Bray can restore the tooth to its proper form and function.
Dr. Bray sees patients by appointment Monday through Friday from 8:30 until 5:30. To make an appointment for an adolescent or adult, please come by our office or call 912 489 1386 to speak with one of our Patient Coordinators.
Our office strives to remain on schedule throughout the day. We know your time is important and will do our best to keep you from waiting. Sometimes a patient has a dental emergency or requires a procedure that takes longer than expected. Please be assured that we will give you an appropriate amount of time to receive the care you need, as well. You can help us avoid delays by arriving promptly at or before your appointed time. Late arrivals may be worked into the schedule if time allows, or it may be necessary to reschedule the appointment for another day.
As a courtesy, our office will attempt to contact you in advance of your appointment. However, the patient is ultimately responsible for making sure appointments are kept.
Broken appointments and short notice cancellations can create problems—the patient is not receiving needed care, and we are unable to make that previously reserved time available to another patient. If it becomes absolutely necessary for you to cancel an appointment, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible—at least 48 hours. Broken appointments without adequate notice may be charged a $50 fee. Individuals or families who repeatedly miss appointments cannot be rescheduled.
It will be necessary to schedule some appointments during school or work hours. We will be happy to provide an excuse if needed. Unmet dental needs can result in problems requiring more time missed from work or school and additional expense.
Several payment methods are available; we accept cash, checks, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. If payments need to be extended over time, we will help those with good credit ratings arrange financing, usually through a national carrier like CareCredit.
(For more information, visit www.carecredit.com.)
We do ask that payment be made at time of service so we can avoid sending statements. The cost of paperwork, postage, and manpower affects our fees. However, as a courtesy to our patients with dental insurance, our office will submit the charges to your insurance carrier at no extra cost.
It usually takes 3 to 6 weeks for benefits to be paid. If after 60 days the insurance company has not paid, we expect the patient to pay the balance on the account while we continue to seek settlement. It may be necessary for the patient to contact the employer or the insurance company to expedite payment.
No insurance policy covers all dental costs. Some companies pay fixed allowances while others pay a percentage of the charges. Many routine services are subject to limits not in keeping with the needs of many patients or are not covered at all.
We do not participate with any managed care programs other than Georgia Medicaid/WellCare programs on a very limited basis.
