What can we do to ease your dental pain?
Dr. Worthington will help determine the cause of your dental pain and discuss solutions appropriate for you.
Step 1: Phone our office for a same day or next day Emergency Dental Appointment (503) 281 - 0866.
If you are really nervous, perhaps ask to speak with the doctor for a phone consult before you visit. Dr. Worthington is happy to listen to your dental concerns.
Step 2: Visit our office 15 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out paperwork.
Step 3: Tell our Dental Assistant your dental concern. She will take one x-ray of the area of concern. (Additional x-rays will be an additional charge if you have several areas of concern.)
Step 4: Tell Dr. Worthington your dental concern. Dr. Worthington will review your x-ray and examine your tooth. He will let you know what treatment is required.
Step 5: Our staff will inform you of the cost for the treatment of that area. If time permits, we will try to do any treatment at this time. Otherwise, the doctor may sometimes provide prescriptions and we will re-appoint you for the next day (or earliest opening).
Step 6: If finances for your treatment is a concern, we offer care-credit third party financing. We will help you apply for this payment option in office if you are interested. In general, if you can get approved for a credit card, you will have no trouble getting approved for care credit. The nice thing about care credit is there are no-interest payment options in certain scenarios.
