Dental Patient Information – Houma, LA
Welcome to Your Smile’s New Home
Dr. Ryan Walker and our team would like to welcome you to our dental office. We are currently accepting new patients and are eager to help you discover the opportunities that can exist with a healthier smile. But before you arrive, we want to make sure your visit is as seamless and stress-free as possible, which is why we’ve included details below for you to review. Should you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
Your First Dental Visit
After being greeted by our front desk team, you will be escorted to a treatment room by one of our dental hygienists. We will take four bitewing X-rays, a CBCT scan, and perform periodontal charting before administering a professional cleaning, all of which will take about one hour. The hygienist will then pass along all information to Dr. Walker and one of our dental assistants. After reviewing your social, medical, and dental histories as well as discussing your concerns, he will perform an oral cancer screening and take any additional photos of your teeth before identifying any problem areas and developing a treatment plan.

Dental Insurance Welcome
Your dental insurance is welcome at our office. Although we are not in-network with any dental insurance companies, our team is committed to helping you receive the maximum reimbursement from your insurer by filing any necessary claims. We know this process can be confusing and overwhelming, so if you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.
CareCredit Financing Available
If you are uninsured or preparing for a procedure that is not covered by your dental insurance company, you can apply for flexible financing through CareCredit. This third-party financier offers low and no-interest payment plans and no surprise fees, so you can feel more confident in managing your budget throughout treatment.
