Welcome to MDRN Dental! If you’re recently scheduled your first appointment here, there is some information we’d like to share with you beforehand so that you can walk in feeling well-informed and confident about what’s to come. Continue reading below, and feel free to contact us in West Houston if you have any questions or concerns.

Your First Visit

Upon arriving in-person for the initial appointment, patients can expect to be warmly greeted by our front desk and invited back immediately to the treatment chair by the hygienist. We’ll want to know if you’re interested in free whitening trays right away – if so, those impressions will be captured, followed by X-rays and a thorough, gentle cleaning.

Then, Dr. Stapleton will arrive to sit down with you and discuss your reasons for visiting, as well as any specific concerns you’re facing. He’ll perform an examination and clearly explain any treatment recommendations he has before reviewing the instructions for your brand-new whitening trays. Our goal is to leave you with a concrete plan in place for any needed future care, as well as a strong sense of satisfaction with the quality of your experience.

Dental Insurance

Navigating the benefits and limitations of dental insurance can seem like an intimidating experience at first, but our MDRN team members help make it a breeze! We accept most PPO insurances and will file claims on your behalf, following up promptly with providers in order to ensure that deserved benefits are maximized. We will also provide comprehensive pre-treatment estimates of what we expect your specific plan to cover before any procedures are scheduled for full transparency.

We accept the following PPOs:

  •  Aetna
  •  Delta Dental
  •  Principal Financial Group
  •  United Concordia
  •  BlueCross BlueShield
  •  Cigna
  •  Assurant
  •  Guardian
  •  MetLife
  •  Humana
  •  Ameritas
  •  Sun Life Financial
  •  ...and many more!

In-Office Dental Plan

For many patients without dental insurance, it can seem difficult to pursue a healthier, more attractive smile while still keeping your budget intact. Dr. Stapleton offers an alternative financial aid to these patients and families in the form of an in-office dental plan. For a flat yearly fee, this membership provides many of the same valuable discounts as traditional insurance without all of that frustrating red tape. Interested in signing up?
