Dr. Carey O'Rielly
Getting to Know Your San Diego Holistic Dentist
If you have any questions or concerns, we are available by phone and appointment during our normal business hours. Please call us anytime at 760-632-1304. We always take time to answer your questions. If we are with a patient, please leave a message, and we will be sure to get back to you. Please be advised that Dr. O does not see children.
The first time you call to make an appointment, our new patient coordinator will discuss any concerns, discomfort, past dental exams, and recent X-rays, if applicable. Dr. O will be happy to re-use recent X-rays for your evaluation.
We ask that you email X-rays that have been taken within the last 12-18 months to [email protected].
What to Expect on Your First Visit
At Integrative Dentistry, Dr. O does his own cleanings. The reason for this is that he likes to monitor his patients’ health in depth. However, he rarely performs cleanings at the first appointment. He prefers to first provide you with a simple at-home hygiene program to bring down the bacteria levels and inflammation in your mouth. This minimizes the bacteria that is pushed into your bloodstream during cleaning appointments.
Our fee for a standard, comprehensive exam is $100. An extended exam for complex and periodontal cases is $150.
Payment and Insurance
We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards. We do not belong to any provider network and we ask that you pay all fees at the time of service. We will submit your claim to your PPO insurance company so that you can be reimbursed according to your plan’s permitted coverage.
Based on Dr. O’s review of your intake form and x-rays, he may request a 20-minute phone consultation prior to your first visit. The fee for this phone consult is $65.00.
