Dr. Solera does see emergency patients on evenings and weekends if the patient’s need is urgent. The exam fee after hours to cover the costs to open the office for business and power up the equipment is $200. Any other services, such as X-rays taken or re-cementing crowns, will be charged in addition to the emergency exam fee. If you are new to our practice, and you have insurance, we will file your insurance for you, but your full fee will be due at the beginning of any after-hours appointment. If you are a patient of record with substantiated insurance your account will be handled the same as all your other appointments.
As it could be dangerous to the patient and can create liability issues, Dr. Solera does not perform dental procedures beyond diagnostics without supporting staff. We provide after-hours emergent dental care as a courtesy, and our clinic is a private business. We are not an emergency room. Dr. Solera may not always be available.
WE ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH MEDICAID OR ArKids, AND THEREFORE THESE INSURANCES WILL NOT PAY FOR ANY SERVICES PERFORMED OR PRESCRIPTIONS WRITTEN BY DR. SOLERA.
If you schedule an after-hours appointment and you are a new to our office, you will need a current government-issued photo id. Please also bring your dental insurance information. To expedite your appointment please print our patient forms from this site (link to forms?) and have them filled out in advance.
