We will handle patient inquiries and process requests in a timely manner, always with a smile. Nothing makes us happier than to help patients achieve their dental goals quickly and easily.

Our Insurance and Financing Policies

We accept all insurance, and will file all claims as a courtesy to our patients. Our knowledgeable staff works tirelessly to maximize your benefits and reduce your out-of-pocket costs. Feel free to call our office if you have questions about your insurance coverage, and don’t forget to bring your insurance card with you to each appointment. For payment of fees not covered by insurance, we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We also accept U of I Credit, and CareCredit, which is a financing plan for healthcare costs that offers low-interest repayment options.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

After we get to know you and obtain a medical history, your first appointment will consist of a professional teeth cleaning and an examination of your mouth. We may photograph your teeth and gums with an intraoral camera and possibly take digital X-rays of your teeth if you have not received dental X-rays recently.

Dr. Hawks will inspect and probe your teeth and gums to detect early signs of tooth decay or periodontal (gum) disease, and his hygienist will clean and polish your teeth to remove hard deposits that increase your risk of developing oral health problems. If Dr. Hawks discovers an issue, he will thoroughly explain your diagnosis and outline an appropriate treatment plan to restore you to good oral health.
