Greetings from Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney

Drs. John Pinnix and George Betancourt would like to extend our sincerest best wishes to you and your families. We hope that you continue to navigate these most difficult times with strength, perseverance and the promise that we will all soon return to 'business as usual'.

Please note, the purpose of this email is not to go into detail about our office protocols during the current COVID- 19 response. We always have and will continue to maintain the highest level of aseptic and sterilization techniques. Regarding our office hours, we are presently closed as a result of recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the American Dental Association. For patients with upcoming appointments, trust that we will communicate directly with you via phone call to reschedule them as we learn more about our current situation.

For the time being, we want to extend to you, our patients, the helping hand you need during these times for all things dental. While we may be limited in terms of office hours and available services, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt remain available to you via other modalities. For example, we ask that you please find and follow our social media pages, pinnixandbetancourt on Instagram, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney on Facebook, and @BlakeneySmiles on Twitter. We will use these social media outlets as a means of communication and also a way to provide a Question & Answer forum for general questions anyone may have.

For personal/private needs related to ongoing treatment or your dental health, we will be available to schedule a virtual consultation. This may be accomplished via FaceTime, Zoom meeting or other platform whereby we may have a face to face encounter. These will be available to you, our patient, as a courtesy.

These are unprecedented times for us all. We strive to be on the front edge of the capabilities and service we provide our patients. Much of that depends on our availability and communication. We are here and we will, across any medium possible, provide the guidance you need during these difficult times. We ask that you please reach out to us either via email to the office (admin@blakeneysmiles.com), one of our social media platforms, or our phone line from which you can leave a message. We will make every effort possible to get back to you in a timely manner.

From Drs. Pinnix, Betancourt and our entire staff at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we hope you and your families manage the COVID-19 pandemic with an abundance of care, caution and respect for the well being of our community.

Best,

Drs. John M. Pinnix, George A. Betancourt and the staff of Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney

DENTAL INSURANCE

It is our goal to maximize the financial role your dental insurance provides in any treatment. We will file all claims and supporting documentation (radiographs, doctor’s narrative, etc.) to our best ability to ensure your coverage is consistent with the terms of your policy. Please note, there are many differences in coverage based on your plan. These include annual maximums, deductibles, covered procedures, reasonable and customary fees and waiting periods just to name a few. Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt are fully aware that this coverage is important to you and will make every effort to have your insurance share in any financial responsibility in accordance with your plan. Please keep in mind a few of the reasons we are “out-of-network” providers.

  • We strongly believe treatment decisions are made between a highly trained doctor and an informed patient.
  • Our philosophy regarding delivery of care is not conducive to an insurance driven model where quantity often exceeds quality.
  • We are able to provide technologically advanced methods with superior materials that often exceed insurance industry standards.
  • Our doctors and staff are here to earn your approval when it comes to helping you achieve the highest level of well being that is appropriate for you, regardless of cost.

More and more we recognize a trend in healthcare where the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship is compromised. Whether dictated by insurance companies, a lack of time or a combination of many factors, we remain steadfast in our approach. We are here to enhance your quality of life through dentistry to the best of our abilities. Thank you.

Dr. Pinnix and Dr. Betancourt
