Where Each Visit Is One-of-a-Kind

Our team at Distinguished Dental would like to welcome you to our dental office here in Fort Worth!

This process starts by making sure you have a positive, stress-free visit. Whether this is your first time visiting us or your 100th, we invite you to review the following information and call us with any questions.

Your First Visit

At Distinguished Dental, we pride ourselves on offering patients a uniquely gentle and friendly experience. You’re our guest, and we want you to feel welcome from the moment you first come through our door.

Before Your Appointment

Before arriving for your first appointment with Dr. McIntosh, we will email all the forms that you will need to prepare for your new patient appointment and provide you with information about our dental office and the services that we offer. We would encourage you to review these before visiting us for the first time so that you may get the most out of your visit. Also, if you have dental benefits, we will help to determine your coverage and minimize the hassle of having to deal with your insurance company yourself.

At Your Appointment

To make sure that you have an amazing experience, you’ll always be greeted by a member of our team as soon as you walk in the door. We also offer refreshments in our waiting room for you to enjoy before your appointment. If it’s your first visit with us, we’ll give you a tour of our office and talk to you about our treatment philosophy and the principles that guide us.

Following your exam, Dr. McIntosh will review your results with you and answer any questions you might have. We’ll also discuss a treatment plan with you, if necessary. Before starting any treatment, though, we’ll make sure you’re completely informed and comfortable with what we recommend. This is what we call Dentistry with Integrity, where the practice of modern, state-of-the-art dentistry preserves old-fashioned values and life-long doctor-patient relationships with our patients' trust in Dr. McIntosh and the Distinguished Dental team.

After Your Appointment

After your visit, you’ll receive a follow-up call from Dr. McIntosh or your hygienist to ensure that you’re doing well and to see if there is anything else that we can do for you. Of course, we will also say “thank you” and that we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Dental Patient Forms

This makes the check-in process easier and more streamlined so that you spend more time in the dentist’s chair instead of the waiting area.

Our team will always do what we can to accurately estimate your out-of-pocket costs. We have your best interests at heart and want to provide you with the best information possible so you can budget accordingly. However, because insurance companies don’t have exactly the same priorities as a neighborhood dental practice, we want to emphasize that any price we quote upfront is only an estimate.

We are in-network with a wide variety of insurance providers:

  • Aetna
  • Ameritas/Principal
  • Assurant/DHA
  • Cigna
  • Delta Dental
  • Guardian
  • Humana
  • Lincoln Financial
  • MetLife
  • Tricare Delta Dental
