A Beautiful Practice For All Your Dental Needs
At Family Dental Works, we take privacy, infection control and patient safety very seriously. Our friendly La Mirada dentist team adheres to strict guidelines that ensure the protection of each patient as well as our individual staff members.
We utilize the latest new-age dental care technology in sterilization and disinfection practices, in order to meet and exceed guidelines that are set in place by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Universal precautions mean that Dr. Ryan Le, DMD and his staff take steps and treat equipment as if every patient carried a communicable disease. The same measures are taken on all patients and instrument sterilization techniques to ensure the safety of everyone that comes into our La Mirada dentist office.
Dental x-rays are very safe and require only minimal amounts of radiation. In fact, more radiation is absorbed from the sun on a day spent at the beach than is absorbed during routine dental x-rays. Family Dental Works utilizes smooth digital radiographic technology that reduces your exposure to radiation by as much as 90% compared to traditional dental x-rays. In addition, patients wear a lead apron and thyroid collar to prevent even minimal amounts of radiation from reaching vital organs. Our friendly staff operates all radiation equipment from a safe distance to prevent a cumulative exposure as they care for patients.
Your privacy is important to us as your dental care provider. All of our friendly dental team members are extensively trained in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which is the most stringent personal privacy regulation in effect for healthcare providers. All health conditions that are discussed with you are done in total confidence in a setting that protects your personal privacy. We will not share any information that you do not specifically grant permission to. Even when communicating healthcare insurance benefits, all coding and billing is done in a private environment to protect your personal information. All information regarding your financial or insurance accounts is secured in order to protect your privacy. If you have any questions regarding our financial policies or filing insurance claims on your behalf, you can call our office.
Health History Screening
All patients seen by Dr. Ryan Le will have a thorough health history screening before any dental treatment is performed. Recording your blood pressure and reviewing your medical history as well as any medications that you are currently taking are essential to providing comprehensive dental care. Many systemic conditions and diseases are often found while a patient visits the dentist. Some conditions can also interfere with or cause dental conditions, so reviewing your health history is key to providing optimal new-age dental care.
Financial Insurance Information
Family Dental Works is committed to providing the most smooth, comprehensive, new-age dental care possible to our patients. By our La Mirada dentist office providing the best treatment possible to our patients, we can help their smiles last for a lifetime.
We understand that sometimes receiving necessary treatment to restore your dental health can create a significant impact on your budget. Our La Mirada dentist office is committed to offering financial plans that help our patients afford the friendly, new-age dental care that they need.
Part of optimizing your dental coverage is coordinating your benefits directly with your dental insurance company. As a courtesy to Dr. Ryan Le’s patients, we provide insurance verification as well as smooth claims submission for financial benefits. If necessary we can also get a pre-estimate from your dental insurance company to determine what type of coverage is expected if you have treatment that needs to be completed.
We accept all major PPO dental insurance plans, including but not limited to:
- Blue Cross
- Delta Dental
- First Dental Health
- Operating Engineers
- Premier Access
- United Concordia
- United Healthcare
It is important for our patients to understand that while their dental insurance plans help cover a portion of their care needs, we cannot coordinate changes in coverage or ask for exceptions on your behalf. Your employer determines all plans and coverage amounts, and concerns about your plan should be brought to your human resources department. In addition, dental insurance plans are responsible to the patient, and the patient is responsible for their account with the dentist. Whether or not a patient has dental insurance coverage, each patient is financially responsible for all fees on their account with our family friendly practice.
CareCredit financing is available for patients of Dr. Ryan Le, who wish to finance their therapeutic or cosmetic dental treatment needs. This financing can be used in smooth conjunction with your dental insurance benefits to cover any amount that your insurance plan does not. CareCredit is a 3rd party patient financing plan that has helped over 7 million patients receive the care that they need. Patients find this service to be very useful as it allows them to have dental therapies completed as soon as possible, before becoming more complex, and more expensive to treat. Most lines of credit through CareCredit provide interest free financing for the first 12 months.
Our office also accepts: VISA, MasterCard, and American Express.
We also offer in-house office financing plans for qualified patients.
