Our office is open from 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
No referral is required to see Dr. Bahi. Generally patients are sent to Dr. Bahi by a dentist or other practitioners who feel that his specialist skills are required for a particular case. The dentist or doctor referring you to our office will send us a referral form outlining your diagnosis and intended treatment. Patients are welcome to come directly to our office without a referral form.
Many procedures can be performed on the same day as your initial consultation. However, when procedures require further planning and preparation they will be performed at a separate visit.
Our office staff is very familiar with all of the major insurance carriers. Every effort will be made to maximize your insurance benefits and our staff will assist you in the claims process. Your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance carrier and due to the privacy act, we do not have details of your insurance coverage. Therefore, the ultimate responsibility for payment lies with you. If your insurance does not cover any or all of your procedure costs after we remit them to your insurance company we will invoice you accordingly. Payment of the invoice is due upon receipt.
Procedures performed in the clinic are not covered by your Care Card
If you are receiving IV Sedation or General Anesthesia, you will need a responsible adult to drive you home and to remain with you for several hours following surgery. You should not operate any vehicle or hazardous device for at least 18 hours. Patients receiving local anesthetic have the option of driving themselves home.
Parents of small children may accompany their child prior to surgery to ask the doctor any questions. However, no family members are allowed in the operating theater when patients are asleep.
