New Patients

First Visit

At Judson A. Werner, DDS, we are always happy to accept new patients who want to actively work on improving and maintaining their oral health. A new patient can expect their first visit to last approximately an hour and a half and will begin with one of our dental assistants gathering some general information regarding your medical and dental history. After that, you will be seen by Dr. Werner who will perform a comprehensive oral exam to evaluate your current health and dental needs. Next, we will schedule your next appointment for your cleaning and any treatments you decide to have done.

Financial and Insurance Policies

Our patients benefit from competitively low fees, to make this possible, we request payment on the day the services are rendered. But don’t worry, there are no surprises, you always receive a written estimate before agreeing to any treatments. For patients with insurance, we request only the estimated patient portion of the payment on the day of treatment and will accept direct payment from the insurance company for the rest. We accept cash, checks, all major credit cards, and Care Credit.

Dental Insurance

We are a preferred provider of Washington Dental Service and Regence BlueShield. As mentioned above, we accept direct payment from insurance companies. However, it is important to remember that you are ultimately responsible for your bill and your insurance will make the final determination on what they will cover. We always supply the insurance company with as much information as necessary to maximize your insurance benefit.
