If you or a loved one are anxious about visiting the dentist, we completely understand, and trust us, you’re not alone. Every member of our team works hard to make each patient feel welcome from the moment they arrive until they leave our office with a smile.

That’s why we make this promise:
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your dental health.
Your first visit with Dr. J. Joseph Hedstrom includes:
- A review of your complete dental and medical history forms.
- Complete X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
- An oral exam - Dr. Hedstrom will clean and polish your teeth, make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, and check for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay.
Once we have reviewed your dental and medical health history forms and completed your dental exam, Dr. Hedstrom sits down with you one on one to offer a dental consultation. During this conversation, he’s happy to answer your questions, make recommendations for ongoing care, and assist you in developing an oral health care plan that meets your needs. If you have any questions between appointments, don’t hesitate to ask. Our knowledgeable team is always here to help.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these things with you to your first dental appointment:
Feel free to complete your forms to prior to arriving at our office, but if you’re unable to do so, please plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes early. Our team is happy to help you complete your forms in our office, or you are welcome to call us any time before your visit with questions.
Cost of treatment is the number one reason patients give for avoiding or postponing dental care. We completely understand. The way dental insurance, treatment costs, and financing all work together can be overwhelming. At Bedford Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping every patient reach their oral health goals, and that includes working hard to explain payment planning options, make the most of insurance coverage, and work with patients to help them understand all possible results that may lead to unforeseen costs.
Affordable Payment Plans
Our ultimate goal for each patient is to help them keep their naturally healthy smile for a lifetime, and that means being able to receive the care you need when you need it most. We accept payment in cash, local checks, and major credit cards. Our staff is always happy to help patients process and file insurance claims. We do everything we can to explain your coverage and develop a treatment plan that meets your needs and budge.
During your appointment or before, please don’t hesitate to ask our team any questions you may have about insurance coverage. Let us know how we can help, and we’ll do our best to make your visits to our Bedford dental practice something you look forward to.
