New Louisville Patients
Welcome to our Louisville, KY dental practice! We’re glad you’ve chosen to entrust your smile to the dedicated team at Bell Dental, and we look forward to seeing you soon. Our skilled dentist and dental team members offer a variety of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services to keep their smiles whole and healthy for a lifetime. If you’re ready to find out more, call our Louisville dental office to schedule an appointment today.
Your First Appointment
During your first appointment, you’ll be greeted warmly by a member of our dedicated dental care team. If you still need to complete your new patient forms, we’ll help you finalize them and process your documents. Then, we can show you around the office and introduce you to any of our dental team members who aren’t busy working with other patients. Next, we’ll capture digital x-rays and complete a comprehensive dental exam, screening for dental health concerns like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ dysfunction, teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism), and oral cancer. Finally, the dentist will sit down with you one on one to discuss any areas for concern we discovered during our evaluation. We partner with you to create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the optimal level of oral health.
Before your first visit, we invite you to complete our new patient information forms from the comfort of your home. This means you get back to see the doctors more quickly on the day of your appointment, and you don’t have to juggle clipboards, paperwork, insurance cards, and more in our office. If you don’t have time to complete your forms before your visit, we ask that you show courtesy to our other patients and arrive at least 15 minutes early to fill in your new patient documentation.

Dental Insurance Accepted
We are happy to offer in-network dental insurance coverage for most major PPO benefit plans. This means we have standing agreements with these insurers to offer treatment at prices that fall within your plan’s set pricing. This ensures you only ever have to pay the out of pocket percentage of your treatment costs and not a cent more. If we are not in-network providers with your insurance plan, we will still be happy to process and file your dental insurance claims. Even though we do not have partnerships with your insurers, we will do our best to make sure the cost of treatment falls within your plan’s set pricing. You may still need to pay slightly more if our fees are higher than those approved by your dental benefit provider, but this additional cost is usually minimal. If you are ever concerned about coverage, please don’t hesitate to talk to our team. We’re here to help.
Learn About Dental Insurance
If you need advanced dentistry services or you want to spread the cost of treatment over several months, we are happy to offer third party financing through CareCredit. Unlike traditional credit cards that can have high interest rates, CareCredit specializes in medical and dental care financing, and they offer low and no interest payment plans for qualified patients. You can apply for preapproval online before your appointment, or we’ll be happy to help you during your dental visit.
