We know you have many choices when choosing a Dentist in Spooner, WI so we have made requesting an appointment a simple process via our Web site.
We will always respect your time, and our team will make every effort to schedule appointments that accommodate the needs of all of our patients. In return, we ask that our patients make every effort to keep their reserved dental appointments. When a patient appointment is broken or missed, it creates scheduling challenges for other patients as well as for our dental office. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes cause delays or require missing an appointment, so if, for any reason you will be delayed or cannot keep a scheduled appointment, please call us as soon as possible. read more...... Appointment Policy
We work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures and will submit the claim for you. It is helpful if you bring your insurance card to your visit. This will not only help us file your claim, but will allow us to estimate your coverage with greater reliability. We can also do pre-treatment estimates. We accept most insurance plans and are contracted with Delta Dental, Met Life and United Concordia Tri-Care. We are also contracted with Medicaid to provide emergency services only. However, we are not a contracted Medicare Provider.
We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time service is rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. For your convenience we accept personal checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We also offer financing through CareCredit and Lending Club. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at 715-635-7888. Many times, a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.
We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility and your prompt remittance is appreciated. We can make arrangements for a monthly payment plan but this must be done prior to the actual procedure.
Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.
Severe Pain, Acute Infection, Trauma
These are the “Big Three” that constitute the vast majority of dental emergencies: pain, infection and trauma.
True dental emergencies will always be addressed at the earliest possible time, nearly always on the same day that you call, even if this means that Dr. Bakkum and staff stay after normal business hours. Your safety and health will always be of the highest priority.
If an emergency develops for you at a time when the office is not open (evenings, weekends), Dr. Bakkum can be reached by calling his cell phone and, if necessary, leaving a message. For the times when Dr. Bakkum will not be available by phone (vacations), competent back up coverage will always be arranged. Necessary information, including phone numbers, can be obtained from the after-hours answering machine.
You will never be left “high and dry” with a dental emergency.
We also serve the Minong, WI and Shell Lake, WI areas!
