New Patient Information
What to Expect
We love new patients and we love new patient appointments! Your first visit to Valdemar Welz, DMD is an important one as it introduces you to our practice and our friendly staff. It also allows us to get to know you and understand any concerns, questions or fears you might have. During the first visit, we will collect background information like medical history as well as take a detailed report of your dental and overall health.
We offer two options for new patient exams. The first is a one hour exam that includes four x-rays and photos. The second is a two hour exam that includes four x-rays, photos and a custom oral care kit ($45 value). Both new patient exams will entail an examination and dental education. The two hour appointment includes in-depth comprehensive dental and nutritional education and how they intersect. Every patient gets a “big tooth picture” and is encouraged to ask questions about anything! After your new patient appointment, we encourage new patients at our practice to schedule a cleaning appointment with one of our hygienists in the following weeks.
To help ensure your first visit goes as smoothly as possible for you, we invite you to take a few minutes to explore our website to educate yourself about the some of the procedures and smile solutions we offer.
In order to make your visit an easy process, you can request an appointment from our online form under contact us or call our office. Our friendly staff will assist you in getting everything set up. You matter to us! We respond to emails and phone calls as soon as possible but typically within one business day.
If you have any questions regarding your dental insurance coverage, please contact our office and let our staff assist you. We are out-of-network and we submit claims on the patient’s behalf for all insurances. Payment is sent directly to the patient from the insurance company.
We offer financing options through Care Credit or through our in-house payment plans.
Student & Armed Forces Discount
We offer a 15% discount to college students currently enrolled in school and have valid proof of ID. To thank our women and men in uniform, we offer a 15% discount for active and veteran military members with proof of ID. This can be applied to every service available at our practice. That includes routine preventive care, restorative procedures, and even simple oral exams.
Parking & Access
Meter parking is available in front and back of our building (Commonwealth Avenue and Newbury Street) and garage paid parking in the back of our building at 425 Newbury Street. Handicap Access is also available on the Newbury Street side (just give us a call so we can help you through the back!).
We look forward to meeting you and discussing your dental needs at our Back Bay Boston office!
