Patient Resources

Resources to help you feel comfortable and well-informed.
Your First Visit

Welcome to Forbes Dental care. We take pride on making your trip to our office comfortable, educational and hopefully fun! Our staff is friendly, skilled and cares about your dental health.

When you arrive for your first visit we will have you complete the New Patient forms. We ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the forms. Otherwise, you can download the form below and bring it to your appointment. If you have dental insurance, please bring your dental insurance card with you.

Your first appointment will be 1 hour long. This appointment you will meet Dr. Forbes and the hygienist. The hygienist will review your oral health care and perform a dental cleaning along with necessary xrays. Dr. Forbes will do an exam and also screen for oral cancer.

Paying for your care

All co-payments and deductibles are due the day of your appointment. We make it a point to let you know your cost of treatment before that begins.

We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, Cash, Check or Care Credit. For non-insured patients we offer 10% cash, check or credit card discounts at the time of service.

Payment plans are available for all treatment with prior consent.

Insurance 101

We file insurance claims on your behalf. Sending in a claim for an estimate before the procedures is also an option. We are in-network providers for many dental insurance plans including Delta Dental, Cigna, Aetna, Humana, United Health Care, Formula, BCBS, MetLife, Healthpartners, Medica, Principal, GEHA, Ameritas, United Concordia, and more.

Please call us at 612-788-0751, and we will be happy to confirm your insurance.

“Since after the turn of the century, I’ve been a patient of Dr. Forbes. He and his dental assistants and hygienists are exceptional. The office rivals Disneyland as one of the happiest places anywhere. Dawn (Mrs. Forbes) and Carol (Front Desk) are always cheerful. They are amazing. In 2001, I made a wise decision when I chose Forbes Dental Care.”
