Initial Examination

Your dentist will begin by reviewing your medical and dental history and completing a comprehensive dental exam. Your exam will include a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw, an oral cancer screening and any x-rays that may be required.

Treatment Plan

Based on your history and examination results, your dentist will develop a long-term dental treatment plan for you. Your dentist will also take the time to answer any questions you have about your oral health and treatment options.

Insurance & Financing

At Cornerstone Dental Group - Dr Rex Hawthorne and Associates, we'll help you navigate our options for payment, direct billing to insurance companies and financing so you can focus on getting the dental care you need.

  • Direct Billing to Insurance

    We accept payment directly from most insurance companies (assignment of benefits). For the ones we don't, we are happy to complete the required forms and send in your insurance claim for you. Your dental insurance company will then pay you directly.

    Our administrative team can assist you in understanding your insurance plan better and send estimates to your insurance company prior to starting any major treatments. 

    Please bring your insurance plan information to your appointment.

  • Financial Policies and Arrangements

    We believe you should be made aware in advance of the cost of treatment; no one likes surprises.

    We can help make dentistry affordable by suggesting options for major treatment that fit your budget .

  • Payment Methods

    Please note that any co-pays or amounts not covered by insurance are your responsibility, and must be paid at the time of your appointment.

    We accept payment by cash, debit or most major credit cards.

Support for Anxious Patients

Anxiety or fear around dental appointments is very common and it can prevent people from getting the dental care they need. If this sounds like you, don't fret.

The team at Cornerstone Dental Group - Dr Rex Hawthorne and Associates has a variety of practices in place, including dental sedation options, to help you relax during your appointments.
