Information for New & Existing Dental Patients
Welcome! We are grateful you chose us to help you care for your dental health! Our goal is to provide you and your family with optimal dental care at every age. We endeavor to make you feel welcome and as comfortable as possible at every appointment in our dental office. We encourage you to ask questions and desire to provide you with thorough information to make the best decisions in your treatment.
Your First Dental Visit
Dr. Vanik's dental office philosophy is to match your needs and desires to available, proven technologies both old and new, which will help you achieve your dental health goals. We put a high priority on patient education so that you can make an informed choice between various treatment options.
Most new patients have a cleaning with our Dental Hygienist prior to a visit with the dentist. Dr. Vanik will review your history, listen carefully to your concerns and goals and discuss your treatment options.
New patient appointments typically include:
- Digital dental x-rays
- Periodontal screening for gum disease
- Oral cancer screening
- Professional dental cleaning
- Thorough exam with the dentist to discuss state of oral health and personal dental goals
For your first visit, please bring the following:
- Your New Patient Forms
- Your insurance card or information (we participate with many plans, except for HMO plans and Medicaid)
- Have any recent xrays and records emailed to us, or bring them with you.
We look forward to meeting you!
New Patient Forms
Before your first visit, we’ll need you to fill out some forms that enable us to treat you and that help us get to know your medical and dental history. As comfortable as our dental office waiting room is, you may want to save time and fill out these forms before you come into our dental office. That way, you’ll be ready to go as soon as you arrive!
Dental Insurance Welcome
At Vanik Dental Group of Annapolis, we want to make our outstanding dental care accessible to everyone. That’s why we gladly work with your dental insurance. By taking advantage of your insurance coverage, you can get the care you need and still save a lot of money with regular preventive care. Our knowledgeable team can file claims with your insurance for you and help you find ways to get the most out of your benefits.
We proudly accept the following dental insurance plans:
- Bluecross/Blueshield PPO/Traditional

CareCredit Financing Available
Sometimes, even with dental insurance benefits, paying for certain treatments all at once can be overwhelming for your budget. We can help you apply for CareCredit financing, which may offer you little to no interest and break up the cost into manageable chunks. That way, you can stay within your monthly budget and still get the dental care you deserve. Interested in learning more? Just give our team a call!
