Patient Information - Hedgecoe Dentistry of Fayetteville NC
Knowing there are many dentists' offices in Fayetteville, our dentists and dental office staff welcome the opportunity to be your child's dentist or your family and cosmetic dentist. While we are located in Fayetteville, we also welcome patients from Fort Bragg, Hope Mills, Spring Lake, Raeford and other surrounding areas. We have provided the below information to make the new patient transition easier.
New Patient Initial Dental Appointments:
Appointment 1: New Patient Comprehensive Dental Examination
As a new patient, your first visit will be a new patient comprehensive dental examination. This initial meeting is with one of our dental assistants, as well as one of our dentists. They will discuss your dental needs and develop a plan for continued oral health. We will take the necessary digital dental x-rays at this appointment to aid in our diagnosis. We will also incorporate a tour of our dental office at this visit. This appointment lasts approximately one hour.
Appointment 2: Hygiene (Cleanings, etc.)
Your first hygiene appointment is a separate appointment, and while we make every attempt to schedule your new patient exam and your hygiene appointment back to back, it may be necessary to schedule them at different times. Please discuss this with our staff at the time of making these appointments.
New Patient Forms
Please 1) print and complete these forms, and 2) bring them with you to your first dental appointment.

Insurance, Appointment, and Financial Commitments Agreement
Insurance and Financing
Hedgecoe Dentistry accepts all dental insurance. Additionally as a courtesy to our patients, we also file insurance claims with insurance companies. Any portion not covered by dental insurance is the patient’s responsibility at the time of service. To avoid any unwelcome surprises, please contact us prior to your visit to get an estimate of any dental expenses not covered by your Dental insurance plan.
Payment Options: For your convenience, Hedgecoe Dentistry accepts cash, personal check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover Card. Monthly payment plans are available through CareCredit, a patient financing plan.
Tricare - Metropolitan Life Information: Active duty military family members often ask if we are a Metropolitan Life (Tricare) provider. While we are not a Metropolitan Life “provider,” we DO accept Metropolitan Life Insurance and file it for you. While there may be additional out-of-pocket expenses for non-provider visits, our Metropolitan Life patients are frequently surprised at the minimal costs – often a few dollars per visit (for routine dental care). Please contact us with any questions on how we work with Tricare-Metropolitan Life.
Cosmetic Dentistry Information
We believe that cosmetic dentistry is both an art and science. Envisioning and creating a beautiful smile requires artistic vision, while implementing that vision requires technical knowledge and skills. Our mission for our cosmetic dental work is to create a beautiful, natural smile. Browse pictures of Hedgecoe's cosmetic dentistry work to see our capabilities.
Pediatric Patient Information
Hedgecoe Dentistry welcomes children. Our dentists and staff relate to children at their level - making our pediatric patients feel comfortable with their visit to the dentist. For children with anxiety about visiting the dentist, we recommend scheduling the initial appointment and the hygiene appointment on separate visits; this allows the child to get to know us before any dental cleanings or other procedures. Contact us for additional information regarding your child's first visit or any other pediatric dental questions.
Family Dental Information
At Hedgecoe Dentistry, we treat patients of all ages, which we believe makes scheduling a bit easier for our patients. With three dentists, we can work to schedule both your dental visit and your child's dental visit at the same time, or even back-to-back if your prefer.
