Frequently Asked Questions

What Will Take Place at My New Patient Visit?


The doctors, with the help of their staff, will review your medical and dental history.  They will perform a comprehensive oral exam and update any necessary radiographs.



Will I Have My Teeth Cleaned at My New Patient Visit?


If you are due for a hygiene visit at the time of your new patient visit, the staff will try to coordinate your cleaning for the same day for your convenience.  Please advise the receptionist if you require a cleaning while you are booking your first appointment.



Should I Obtain My Dental Records From My Previous Dental Provider?


Yes, it is very helpful for our providers to have records and radiographs from your previous dentist.  Providing your prior dentist with a signed Records Release Form will allow them to forward your records to our office via mail or secure email.



Does Merrimack Dental Associates Accept All Insurance Programs?


The dentists at Merrimack Dental Associates are Northeast Delta Dental Providers.  Dr. Herod and the dental hygiene department are Premier providers and Dr. Antonsson is a PPO provider.   As a courtesy, we will submit to most other carriers on your behalf.  Currently, our office does not accept Medicaid, Medicare, or NH Healthy Kids.
