Our Dental Practice
The number one focus of our dental practice is to help our patients maintain their teeth for a lifetime. This requires the individualized relationship based approach to care. All new patients receive a comprehensive exam and personalized evaluation of their dental needs. Upon reviewing the obtained information, the patient and dentist consult about where the patient has been, is presently and what the probable future holds for them dentally. Then the appropriate treatment plan is developed which achieves the two goals of protecting the teeth and satisfying the individual desires of the patient. It is through education and understanding that we hope to help the patients choose treatment options that are best for them.
Our team approach to care has the entire staff involved with our patient’s needs. It is our goal that the high standard of respect and care that we all would like and deserve begins from the first phone call and greeting to the friendly but professional attention given chair side to each patient both in the hygiene and operative setting. We are your best advocates to help you resolve your dental needs and concerns.
Through the years, the practice has focused its attention to the comprehensive dental restorative needs of adults. Therefore, we do not take children under the age of 16 into the practice. We always welcome new patients to the practice, but in an effort to give the best care possible, we do limit the number of new patients added to the practice each month. If the need is urgent, that need will be addressed until such time the patient can be scheduled for the comprehensive exam.
We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the office and our use of the latest but practical technologies. We have working relationships with the finest specialists in the Greater Portland area and try our best to keep any transition between visiting each office as seamless as possible. Again, our goal is to help our patients resolve their needs with the best people and technologies available in our area.
Dr Myers’ dental office is located just off Route 100/23 at the intersection of Blackstrap Road and Washington Avenue Extension. We are easily accessible from all points of Greater Portland via the Maine Turnpike (exit 53), Washington Avenue, Auburn Street or Riverside Street.
The office treats patients and is designed to give individualized attention to each of our patients. We are completely computerized both within the office and are Internet connected with all available insurance companies for easy processing of insurance information. Digital intraoral photography and radiographs gives instantaneous diagnostic capabilities to our staff. We use the best and time-tested materials in the dental field to help ensure long lasting restorative success.
In order to control the cost of dental treatment, we request payment at the time service is rendered. If you have dental insurance, we will process the insurance forms as a courtesy to our patients. We request you pay only the estimated portion that the insurance will not cover. The patient’s portion is normally collected at the time of service.
Patients are seen by appointment only, so please call in advance to reserve a time. We do confirm appointments one to two days prior to the appointment. If, however, you are unable to keep this reserved time, please notify our office at least 24 hours in advance. This courtesy on your part makes it possible to give the appointment time to another patient.
Circumstances requiring urgent care arise from time to time. The doctor or appropriate coverage is available after hours and on weekends. All emergencies will receive immediate care, when possible.
