We proudly provide our patients a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility for the highest quality dental care available in Missoula. It is one of our top priorities to protect the well-being of our valued patients. For this reason, our office meets and surpasses all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and CDC (Center for Disease Control) standards. We are confident that you will feel right at home in our office as we welcome all patients as if they were family.
If you would like to make an appointment, please contact our office by phone or email. Emergency calls and appointments are available and welcome, especially for new patients seeking help.
Bitterroot Dental is a Fee-For-Service practice. This means payment is required at your appointment. If you have insurance, we will be more than happy to submit all insurance forms for you and help you recover the most from your benefits. However, we are not a contracted provider for any insurance companies. We work for you, not your insurance company. We will gladly help you navigate the insurance process so you receive your maximum benefit.
We understand the cost of dentistry can be very high so we will do everything we can to help you find a payment plan so you can afford the treatment you need and want. Every patient will receive a customized plan addressing all dental and oral health needs. Prices will be included in this plan, so you will know the cost before treatment is performed. Our office accepts check, cash, VISA, Mastercard or Discover cards. Cash paying patients receive a discount. We also offer interest free Care Credit cards for all patients and Illumisure discount plans for patients without insurance.
We see patients by appointment only. We expect that when you ask us to reserve an appointment for you in our schedule that you will find a time that has zero chance of having to be changed. We are only able to run the type of patient-focused practice we have by keeping appointment changes to an absolute minimum. Changing appointments at the last minute or missing appointments without letting us know is unacceptable. It prevents us from providing you or other patients with the healthcare they need in a timely manner. Often, patients in need of urgent care are made to wait so we can honor your scheduled time as first priority. When you cancel without notice, these patients wait unnecessarily for dental care, often in pain.
If a change is unavoidable, you must give us 48 business hours notice. Cancellation messages cannot be left on our answering machine. If your appointment is on Monday, you must let us know the previous Thursday if a change will be necessary. Failure to do so will result in a Late Notice or Cancellation Fee of $25 per half hour scheduled. If your schedule is unpredictable or changes without much notice, you may choose to call us on a day you are available and we will attempt to work you in.
