Family Dentist in Lockport, IL
Why Choose Us as your Lockport Dentist?
“We Will Either Find A Way Or Make One”
Years ago, when I first came to Lockport, a wonderful woman who needed a fair amount of treatment to avoid a denture came to my office. She had no insurance, was highly anxious and at wits’ end about her predicament. She was absolutely convinced she had no options. I knew I had the ability and resources to design a treatment plan that would allow her to keep her teeth and at a cost she could handle.
After her treatment was completed, she gave me a rectangular glass paperweight with the above quote etched on it. It has become a reminder to me and my staff of the obligation that we owe to those that choose my practice for their dental care. This patient passed away a few years ago, but that block of crystal sits on the counter in my reception room and will stay there until the day I retire.
While I initially get many compliments on the beautiful space we work in, the ongoing praise is always reserved for my most valuable asset — my fantastic staff. They all live locally and are or have been involved in Lockport’s school, churches or organizations. Almost every new patient finds they have something in common with one or more of the ladies who work with me. These women have personalities that are genuinely warm and welcoming. It’s a pleasure to come to the office each day. You will find them competent, honest and discreet. Expect to be able to count on them as much as I do.
Our office is the most state-of-the art dental facility in Lockport providing the HIGHEST quality dental care available. Because our top priority is to protect the well-being of our patients, our office meets and surpasses all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and CDC (Center for Disease Control) standards. Knowing that going to the dentist can be stressful for some, our modern and comfortable office was specifically designed to help you feel at ease.
We know and respect that your time is valuable.
Because your time is reserved just for you, we require 2 business days notice of your need to change or cancel an appointment to avoid a $75 cancellation charge. Your courtesy allows us the chance to schedule an emergency patient for actual treatment (we have emergency patients calling our office every day).
Payment for treatment is expected at the time of service, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
To help you afford the treatment you need and want, several payment options are available, including interest-free financing . Cash, check, and major credit cards are accepted.
Because we know patients don’t like confusion or surprises about fees, in almost all cases (and before treatment starts), a written treatment plan is provided to you. It will itemize and prioritize procedures and state the fees, discounts and estimated insurance benefits.
Our business staff is very experienced with insurance matters and will quickly get you answers to any questions you may have regarding your specific coverage. We promptly and accurately submit all insurance forms for you, making sure you recover the most from your benefits.
Insurance estimates we give you are based on information we are given by your carrier. We do not guarantee this information, as it may change for a number of reasons. As the insured, you are responsible for knowing your coverage as well as making us aware of all changes to insurance or available benefits so that estimates remain reliable.
To Our Non-Insurance Patients
“WE WILL EITHER FIND A WAY OR MAKE ONE”
We have developed a strong and loyal patient following in the 25 years we have been in Lockport — and we are VERY appreciative. Unfortunately, more patients than ever are either losing their insurance (for various reasons) or having their insurance restricted in one way or another. Patients who do not have insurance routinely get sizable discounts and we’re happy to do it. New patients should visit the “Offers” page of this website for valuable discount offers.
I was recently in the Chicago area visiting a friend when I had a dental emergency. My friend recommended Dr Healy. Not only did they accept me on the same day I called, but I received excellent care! The staff was welcoming and professional, and Dr. Healy was warm and reassuring. Wish I lived in Chicago so that Dr. Healy could be my regular dentist! Many thanks to Dr. Healy and his staff!
We also offer treatments that improve the appearance of your smile – giving you the confidence boost you deserve.
