During your first experience at Tipton Lakes Family Dentistry, you'll feel right at home from the moment you walk through our front door. Our friendly and compassionate team is one reason why you'll love coming to our family dental office. All ages are welcome here, and you can always access comprehensive dental care under one roof.

When you arrive, one of our staff will greet you and have you complete a few intake forms so that we can get to know you better. From there, we'll escort you back to one of our exam rooms, where we can assess the following:

  • Periodontal health
  • Your occlusion (biting relationship)
  • Signs of tooth decay or enamel demineralization
  • Health and medical history
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Concerns about specific teeth or smile issues

Most patients also receive a preventative cleaning during this appointment. If treatment is required, we are happy to talk with you about your options regarding your oral health and cosmetic needs. Our services are designed to make you feel comfortable and achieve the smile you want in a relaxing, pressure-free atmosphere.

Dental Insurance Options

Our office in Columbus is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits.

Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid as per the contract agreement.

We are a Delta Dental Premier Provider. We work with most all Insurance companies and will do our best to file your claim for you. You will be responsible for any balance not taken care of by your insurance policy. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them. If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action.

Once treatment has started, we will file your claims. To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our New Patient Registration Forms. Tipton Lakes Family Dentistry in Columbus, IN accepts most insurance plans. Please have your insurance information accessible when scheduling your first appointment - that way we can verify your insurance benefits and minimize your out-of-pocket expense! Please bring your insurance card and information to your consultation dental appointment.
