Information for New
& Existing Dental Patients
Welcome to Signature Dental Care! Dr. Schnell and the rest of our team are so happy to have you here, and we can’t wait to help you achieve a healthier, more confident smile. If you are brand new to our office, please take a few minutes to read through the information on this page so that you know what to expect regarding necessary paperwork, financial options, and more. Any questions or concerns? Don’t hesitate to call us before you arrive in person.
Your First Dental Visit
When you step through the front door of our beautifully decorated and spotless office, you’ll be warmly greeted by our front desk. If you’ve already completed all of the new patient paperwork (we’ll always direct you to a link to fill the information out ahead of time), you’ll be brought back to start your appointment right away – no waiting required! During this visit, Dr. Schnell and the other team members will enjoy simply getting to know you and learning about your reasons for visiting, as well as how we can help you achieve the goals you have in mind for your smile.
After completing an examination and a professional cleaning (if requested), we’ll recommend further treatment as needed and help you plan out these visits and the finances associated with them before saying goodbye. We hope that this first appointment is one of many more to come!
New Patient Forms
After scheduling an appointment, we ask that patients complete their registration info ahead of time to save a few extra minutes in the waiting room. The process is simple and can be done from the comfort of home – just follow the link below to download the new patient forms and print them out. Then, all you have to do is remember to bring them with you to our Crystal River office!
Dental Insurance Welcome
When it comes to navigating your dental insurance information without unnecessary stress, our team is happy to lend a hand! We are an in-network provider with Florida Blue and accept many other major PPO’s, helping patients file claims and maximize deserved benefits with our extensive knowledge of the system. We want to make high-quality care genuinely affordable for you and your loved ones.
CareCredit Financing Available
Maybe you don’t currently have dental insurance, or maybe you’re interested in a big treatment plan but unable to cover the cost all at once. Whatever the case may be, financing through CareCredit is a flexible and reasonable alternative for patients in need. Multiple lengths of payment plans are available, and the shortest ones have NO interest attached for added convenience.
