Dr. Doyle Freano and his staff consider themselves a partner in your dental care and take ample time during the initial visit to learn about your oral health, overall health, personal concerns, and goals. We take a proactive approach to preventative dental care. Your first visit will begin with a new patient exam and consultation with Dr. Freano. This visit will take approximately 90 minutes. We have incorporated some of the latest technology into our Lexington dentist office, including an intraoral camera that patients can follow on their TV screens. Dr. Freano thoroughly examines all parts of the occlusal system for dental patients.

Below, we will answer common questions that patients have about their primary visit to our office:
What should I bring to my first dental appointment?
We ask you to download your health history form, complete it and return it to the office 2 days in advance of your first visit so that Dr. Freano can review and be prepared for your first visit. Please bring your dental insurance information with you as well.
Does Dr. Freano accept dental insurance?
Our office works with almost every dental plan in the market to get you the maximum benefits you are entitled to. Dr. Freano is independent and it benefits you because he can give you every option possible for your treatment instead of being limited to the options your company has chosen for you.
Many plans limit restorations to silver/mercury and non-precious metal fillings because they are still approved and cheaper, but much less desirable in quality, longevity, appearance, and safety. Since Dr. Freano is independent of contracts with carriers that limit your choices, you can use your benefits for the coverages that you have to apply to the highest quality, longest-lasting, and most esthetic restorations.
The best materials do not degrade in your mouth and can last much longer providing you with much better value over time. We will give you all the information so you can make the best choice for your mouth and your budget.
We will file pre-determinations and help you get everything you are entitled to with your plan while giving you all the information to help you have the best possible value and result. Most of our patients are covered by dental benefits and like the way we help them with the process including providing all the choices to help them stay healthy and look their best.
Do you provide dental care for children?
Yes, Dr. Freano is a family dentist and we welcome children to our Lexington dentist office. The American Dental Association recommends that children see a dentist by the time their first tooth erupts. Bringing children to the dentist at a young age helps them feel more comfortable and relaxed. We generally begin providing routine care for children (every six months) at age 3.
