Want to Become a Patient at The Dental Center?

The Goodwin Dental Center is currently accepting new pediatric patients, up to age 17. (We are not currently accepting new adult patients.) Goodwin’s caring dentists, hygienists and the rest of our dental team are here for your child. We accept most dental insurance plans and offer discounts (sliding fee) based on your income to make it affordable.

If you are looking to establish as new patient, please complete the New Patient Packet found below. People looking to become a dental patient will also need to bring their insurance information or proof of income which can either be four consecutive pay stubs or last year’s taxes. Registration cannot be completed over the phone, and must be done in person with one of our staff members. A patient’s first appointment will take about 1 hour. The New Patient exam is a prepaid appointment and the cost will be based on your insurance or placement on the sliding fee scale following registration. If you have had x-rays done in a different office during the last five years, you can print a Release of Records and have your previous office transfer them to us.

For Adults:

  • Fill out the New Patient Packet 
  • Please arrange to have your previous dental records and x-rays sent to our practice.
  • Bring your insurance card to your visit OR current income verification if you are uninsured. Acceptable forms of income verification are:
    • 4 weekly or 2 biweekly current and consecutive paystubs
    • SS, SSDI, food stamp or retirement benefit letter
    • Child support/ court papers
    • Last year’s tax return (form 1040)
  • IF UNINSURED: financial determination will be set and patient will be placed on the sliding fee scale.
    • Uninsured adult patients will be expected to pre-pay their first visit; cost will vary depending on type of dental service.
    • The first visit will consist of a Comprehensive exam and a full set of radiographs (x-rays).
    • All future visits will be charged at your eligibility determination
