Office Visits

Before visiting our office for the first time, please take the time to fill out the online patient forms and review the HIPAA policy. If you cannot do that before your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled visit to allow time to fill out the forms in the office. Bring your insurance card with you, and please notify the front desk if there are any changes to your address or insurance.

During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history, listen to your goals for treatment, and do a thorough clinical examination,  including digital X-rays and photos of your mouth. Once all the appropriate data is gathered, Dr. Isaacson or Dr. Barclay will discuss their findings with you.

A tentative plan, sometimes with several options depending on the complexity of your case, will be developed. Fee estimates will be presented  to you at the next visit. We can pre-determine your plan with most insurance companies. Treatment plans are estimates only, and sometimes circumstances change. Insurance estimates are no guarantee of coverage.

At your cleaning visit, our hygienists will clean your teeth, and go over brushing and flossing techniques and product recommendations. A recommended interval between cleanings will be suggested. It can be three, four, or six months, depending on your individual needs.

Occasionally a thorough cleaning cannot be completed in one hour and you may need additional visits. If you experience discomfort, please let your hygienist know, as we have multiple options for your comfort. 

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

 

Parking in Downtown Seattle 

It’s exciting being in the heart of all the new construction going on downtown BUT we know it creates challenges for those who drive.

Paid street meter parking is available in Belltown 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and is generally limited to two hours, but it’s four hours north of Bell Street. For patients with smartphones, Parking Pay-by-Phone service is now available in all paid on-street parking areas in Seattle with https://paybyphone.com/, or you can download the Paybyphone Parking App.

There are several websites and apps to help you find surface lot  parking, such as https://seattle.best parking.com and https://parkme.com. Please allow enough time both to navigate the construction and to find parking so you can arrive relaxed.
