We believe that patients can get the most out of their dental care when they are well-prepared and well-educated. Properly preparing for your initial consultation will ensure that the appointment runs smoothly, all of your questions and concerns are addressed, and that there will be no unwelcome surprises. Before visiting us, there are several things you can do that will enable you to take full advantage of your time in our office. This includes:
Our smile specialists, who we consider to be a dream team, discuss the many ways they preserve and promote the health of patients’ smiles. From performing deep cleanings to educating individuals about improving oral hygiene, our staff works with patients to help them feel comfortable, cared for, and cared about.
At Smiles by Myles, Northern Virginia Dentist Wayne Myles ensures every patient will have a quality and enjoyable experience during his or her visit to our practice. From friendly reminders about your upcoming appointment to an encouraging word or embrace during your visit, our smile specialists go above and beyond to show you how much they care.
Your first trip to the dentist is an opportunity not only to receive superlative dental care but to get to know Dr. Myles and his staff. We want our patients to view their dental care as an experience, not a simple exchange of services, and encourage them to ask questions and feel at ease.
During your first dental appointment, Dr. Myles will take the time to discuss your specific oral health goals, as well as address any questions or concerns you may have regarding dental treatment. It is important to be honest and open about your questions and concerns in order to allow Dr. Myles to provide dental care that will suit your needs and wants. He will also review your dental health records and perform a thorough oral examination. This may include a full set of X-rays and will help him get an accurate idea of your oral health, in order to begin planning adequate dental care.
After this initial examination, Dr. Myles will discuss all of your dental treatment options, as well as the risks and benefits of each, so that you can make an informed decision regarding your oral health. By working together, you and Dr. Myles can create an effective, customized treatment plan that will help you obtain optimal oral health and a beautiful smile. We ask that you schedule your first dental visit at a time that is convenient for you, so we can devote ample time to your dental care.
As a service to our patients, we accept most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional), and PPO out-of-network. Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly, while others delay payment for several months.

These trusted third-party financing institutions offer competitive interest rates and payment schedules to suit most budgets, ranging from one-year, no-interest plans to as long as seven years’ financing for amounts up to $40K.
