For all of the new patients coming into Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental, along with our existing patients, we have gone through and put many of our forms here on our website. This allows you to locate the paperwork you are going to need, print it out on your own, and fill it out before coming into our offices. This means that instead of having to show up 15-30 minutes before your appointment to get all of the paperwork filled in, you can come in just a few minutes prior so that we can verify your dental insurance information and get you signed into our system.

Setting Up an Appointment
When you want to set up an appointment with one of the dentists at Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental, you have two choices. If you want to do it while here on this page, you can email us and we can let you know what openings we have.
However, if you are in a bit more of a hurry, you can give us a call to schedule that appointment. Our number is 503-334-1141, and we only see patients when they have a pre-arranged appointment.
Should you be unable to fill your appointment spot, we ask that you give us at least 48 hours of notice before the missed appointment. If something comes up last minute, we will do our best to fill that appointment with one of our patients, but we ask that you give us much notice to us as possible.
We accept many different forms of insurance, but we also expect the portion you will be responsible for to be paid at the time services are rendered. We can sit down with you and figure out an estimate of what your costs are likely going to be, so you have an idea when you come in. If you are a new patient, we request that you drop off your new patient paperwork 2-3 business days before your initial appointment so we can contact your insurance company and figure the type of coverage you have, and payments to expect.
For the portion of the services that you owe, you can pay with cash or a personal check, money order or one of many acceptable credit cards. You can also find out prior to coming into Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental if you qualify for any financing through www.CareCredit.com which could make paying for your portion of the dental services a bit easier. You can pay your portion back over 2-4 years, and have payments as low as 3% of the total amount due.
For those who want to find out what type of coverage they would have for dental care, you can call our offices and speak with one of our experienced receptionists or speak with our office manager. We can then help you set an appointment for the dental services you are looking for with a payment that you will be able to afford. If you find yourself in need of major services, we may be able to offer payment arrangements for special circumstances.
