DO YOU TAKE MY INSURANCE?
For most medical plans, yes.
For some medical plans sometimes. For those that we are not in network with, sometimes you have to go out ot pocket until your plan reimburses you. As a courtesy, our office can prepare and file medical claims and instruct insurance to reimburse the patient.
For some plans, no. For example, we are not medicare or medicaid providers. For these plans you will definitely have to go out of pocket 100% of the time and pay us at the time of the visits.
By becoming a patient, we become your advocate. Minimizing patients' health care costs is part of that.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR TMJ? HOW DOES DR. TENNANT TREAT TMJ?
It depends on the type of TMJ. TMJ is a collection of many different conditions. It is not specific enough to be a diagnosis. TMJ is a layman term for many different conditions that can affect the jaws and chewing apparatus. The question has so many answers and variations that attempts to answer would be beyond the scope of this website.
Our biggest role is to diagnose and direct. This is the starting point. We first identify the specific TMJ type, then guide patients to their unique solution. There is no product or procedure that solves them all.
Greater than 90% of our patients improve without surgical intervention.
