Welcoming New Patients

Let's Get Started

New Patient Information

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to tell you about our new patient experience. We hope this will be the beginning of a long and mutually rewarding relationship for both you and our dental team.

When you call, you will speak to one of our experienced, friendly team members. Please don’t be nervous to speak with them about how long it has been since your last check up. We are here to ensure you will have a comfortable and positive experience.

Our new patient comprehensive examination is 90 minutes of your time, and we feel that it is worth the investment. It is important to us that you are well informed about your oral health and that we also have the opportunity to gather as much information as necessary to keep your mouth healthy.

Our Staff is well qualified to help answer any questions you may have regarding our practice philosophy, insurance, or financial matters. If we ever fail to meet these expectations please do not hesitate to let us know about any questions or concerns you may have.

Insurance and Forms of Payment

We are a Delta Dental Premier provider, but as a courtesy to patients, our office accepts and files all insurance to maximize benefits. We accept cash, check, and major credit cards including American Express, Discover, Visa, and MasterCard as forms of payment.

Affordable Financing

If you prefer to finance your dental work, we partner with CareCredit to provide a trusted name in healthcare financing. You can apply in our Gahanna, OH office at your next appointment or visit their site for more information and an online application.

Customer service is such a forgotten art. But at Dr. Van Huffel’s office they not only understand customer service, but have raised the level of service to an extremely high level.

Dr. Van Huffel's knowledge and skill is excellent and her integrity is above reproach. Her staff is friendly, efficient and professional. She is one of the reasons I chose Columbus for my retirement home.
