Request Appointment

Your First Visit

We ask that you arrive about 10 minutes early for your first appointment so that you have plenty of time to fill out a New Patient form. 

New Patient Form

Children Under 15 

If you have a child under the age of 15, we ask that you bring their health card to their first appointment. Some dental procedures are covered under the Nova Scotia Children’s Oral Health Program

Initial Examination

Your dentist will review your dental history and complete a dental exam. This will include an examination of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw, an oral cancer screening and any X-rays that may be required.

Treatment Plan

At Antigonish Family Dentistry, we like to keep our patients informed and do what we can to ensure you understand your diagnosis as well as your treatment plan. Your dentist will also take the time to answer any questions you have about your treatment options.

Insurance & Financing

At Antigonish Family Dentistry, we'll help you navigate our payment options, insurance claims, and financing so you can focus on achieving your dental goals.

Insurance Claims

We can direct bill your insurance company and our administrative team is happy to assist you in understanding your insurance plan better.

Payment Methods

The full treatment cost must be paid at the end of each appointment. We accept payment by cash, debit, most major credit cards, and e-transfers.

For patients who require extensive dental care, we are pleased to offer flexible payment plans. Please speak to our staff if you believe a payment plan may be right for you or if you have any questions.

Support for Anxious Patients

Being anxious or fearful about dental appointments is very common. That said, it can stop people from getting the dental care they need. If this sounds like you, don't stress.

The team at Antigonish Family Dentistry has a variety of practices in place, including dental sedation options, to help you relax during your appointments with your dentist.
