Dr. Tomlin and the entire Park Cities team welcomes you.
Dr. Tomlin is available Monday through Thursday between 8:00am and 5:00pm, and Fridays between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm. In addition, she will see emergency patients the same day, if at all possible. Please call our office at 214-949-1836 to schedule your appointment.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, most often a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us at the time of your initial visit to the office by providing the following information:
- Your referral slip and x-rays from your referring dentist.
- A list of medications you are currently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring any forms or insurance cards with you to the appointment.
Please Note: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment. Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern prior to surgery (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring premedication, severe diabetes, or hypertension.) If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to us.
Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. We will be happy to file a dental claim with your insurer on your behalf. We understand the value of insurance benefits that you receive from your employer (who has negotiated and purchased a certain level of benefits for you). As long as you provide us with insurance benefit information in advance, we will provide you with an estimate of your benefits for any needed treatment. Also, be aware that some companies will not give us fee estimates until treatment is completed.
As you are probably aware, insurance companies change benefits, co-pays and deductibles faster than we (or you) can keep up with. We currently work with many insurance plans and do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us at the time. Although we will gladly file your claim on your behalf, you may wish to submit the claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by the service providers (dental offices).
Further, most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedures that may need to be done.
