We want to make your visit to our office as easy as possible. To that end, we offer all of our patients notices and forms here on-line for your review. You can even complete them on-line or download them so that you can fill them out at your convenience prior to your visit.
▶︎ COMPLETE FORMS ON-LINE
▶︎ DOWNLOAD & PRINT FORMS
You can review, complete and submit your patient forms on-line in advance of your appointment. However, you will be asked to sign these forms upon your arrival at our office.
You can print your patient forms and complete them at your convenience. Just remember to bring them with you to your appointment!
It is our office policy for patients to pay for all procedures at the time of each visit unless prior arrangements have been made. A prepayment courtesy of 5% will be subtracted from the total amount due (on services totaling over $2000) if paid in full PRIOR to the first treatment date and if payment in full is made by cash or check.
We offer CareCredit℠, a no-interest alternative to pay for your dental care. CareCredit℠ offers several, no interest, long-term payment options.
Please review our financial policy which is included as part of our patient forms for on-line review or download. If you have any questions, please contact Courtney Guest, our Billing Manager.

At St. Simons Island Dental Associates, we want to make your dental visit as fast and efficient as possible. We know that your time is valuable and we strive to accommodate you at all times. Here are a few helpful tips to help streamline your visit with us!
STEP 1: COMPLETE ALL PATIENT FORMS
Complete our patient forms on-line or print them, complete them and bring them with you to your appointment. This will expedite things upon arrival.
STEP 2: BRING ANY INSURANCE INFORMATION
Please bring any pertinent information regarding your dental insurance with you to your dental appointment. We will gladly file any dental insurance claims on your behalf as a courtesy to you.
STEP 3: ARRIVE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES EARLY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
Arriving early for your dental appointment helps us to address any issues with your dental insurance and/or medical history prior to your appointment time with the dentist or hygienist.
STEP 4: PREPARE ANY QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE
Bring a list of questions or concerns you may have for the dentist or dental hygienist. This will help create a more thorough consultation, prevent any missing information and help us address your concerns properly.
STEP 5: HYGIENE VISIT
If your appointment is with the dental hygienist, she will clean and polish your teeth, conduct a full examination and take x-rays. Afterward, the dentist will be consulted to check x-rays and conduct an additional examination of your teeth for signs of decay, check your gums for changes and other signs of oral cancer or disease.
STEP 6: DENTIST CONSULTATION
On all adult new patients our office requires a comprehensive examination with the doctor even if you have had regular care under another dentist. This will allow us the doctor to notice any changes or problems more easily in future visits.
