Forms & Finances

Accessible Dentistry For All

At Glen Valley Dentistry, we believe in providing quality dental care for everyone who needs it. We put you in charge of your oral health by working with nearly any insurance plan, and by offering financing options for your treatment. We’ll work with you to ensure you receive the care you need for a healthy, confident smile.

Helping you Maximize Your Dental Benefits

The world of dental insurance can be a confusing place with rules and restrictions that limit the kind of care you can receive. That's why we can bill out to most insurance plans and will work with you to maximize your benefits. Individual insurance plans vary, so give us a call to speak with one of our friendly, knowledgable team members, and get any of your insurance questions answered.

Financing Options With CareCredit

We know that not everyone has access to dental insurance, but that shouldn’t stop you from receiving the quality care you deserve. That’s why we work with CareCredit, a national lender, to provide you with financing options that allow you to create payment plans that fit your needs, budget, and lifestyle.

Do you accept my insurance?

Glen Valley Dentistry is in-network with Delta Dental Premier, but we’re also able to bill for most other dental insurance plans. Because coverage details vary, feel free to give us a call at (616) 891-8931 to ask us about your particular insurance plan. Your insurance company will encourage you to visit an office that’s in their network of providers. We will encourage you to find a dental home that takes great care of you regardless of your insurance plan.

What if I don't have dental insurance?

Dental insurance often helps patients pay for needed care, but it’s not a requirement to be a patient in our office. We’re happy to provide excellent care to patients who don’t have dental insurance for themselves or their family members. Call our office at (616) 891-8931 to find out how easy it is to be a patient at Glen Valley Dentistry regardless of your insurance coverage.

At what age should my child have their first visit?

We recommend that your child’s first appointment be around their first birthday, or when their first tooth erupts, whichever comes first. This first visit is called a “happy visit” and there is no fee. We take this opportunity to look in the child’s mouth and also share helpful information and tips on keeping your child’s mouth healthy right from the start. This is also a great opportunity to ask us any questions that you have.

How does dental care change as my child grows?

Every stage of development has its own set of challenges when it comes to keeping an eye on your child’s oral health. We have a few tips to keep your child’s smile bright and healthy no matter their age. 

  • Age 0-2: to avoid early oral developmental problems and decay, it is always good to wean children from a bottle and/or pacifier by the time they’re a year old. It is also important to never allow them to fall asleep with a bottle or sippy cup still in their mouth, as this is the leading cause of early decay in young children.
  • The Glen Valley Dentistry team will gather information to help with your first appointment, including tracking down any x-rays you already have.
  • Age 2-4: We recommend to see your child once a year until they turn 4, at which time, we begin the regular six month interval. If certain conditions are identified in the early visits we may recommend they be seen every six months.
  • Age 4-18: If your child is a new patient between these ages, they will see the dental hygienist and the dentist for their initial visit and typically will have their teeth cleaned at this appointment. In this age group we recommend your child be seen twice a year for routine preventive health appointments. We may also recommend further preventive measures like dental sealants.
