New patients are always welcome! Both Dr. Platt and Dr. Kidder are accepting new patients. Our team stands behind these two reputable dentists, and as a team we are able to care for a wider range of dental patients in the Baton Rouge area. Before you arrive, we want to let you know what to expect:
Most new patients request to have a dental cleaning at their first appointment, so we will schedule you with one of our registered dental hygienists. At this first visit you will either meet with Dr. Platt or Dr. Kidder for a comprehensive exam and screening. Find out more about your first visit experience.
Amenities and Comforts
We want you to feel comfortable and welcome each time you walk through our front door. We’ve designed our reception area to feel like a home, with a comfortable leather sofa, antiques, a TV and a fireplace. Helping you feel relaxed is one of the ways we’re able to create a positive dental care experience.
In the treatment room, our cozy neck pillows and blankets can keep you comfortable while you’re lying back in the patient chair. All of our patients also have access to chair massage pads or headphones to help you tune-out the environment during your treatments. There are televisions in all of our operatories, with access to computerized Caesy Patient Education software.
Payment Options and Insurance
We accept out of network insurance benefits as well as checks and credit cards. Our patients can take advantage of a 5% discount when paying for their services in advance. In addition to traditional payment methods, we also offer financing options to make care more accessible. Take advantage of our in-office payment plan, or no/low-interest financing through CareCredit or SmartCare. Our treatment and financial coordinators are happy to review all of your expected fees with you, so that you can select a payment option that meets your needs.
