Patient Resources

We strive to make your patient experience as easy and stress-free as possible. We understand just how important the appearance and health of your teeth is to your self-confidence and well-being.

Your first visit to Mendelovitz DDS establishes a foundation for our ongoing relationship. During this visit, we will review your medical and dental history. You'll have the opportunity to meet your dentist and ask any questions you may have. For this reason, we ensure that your first appointment allows plenty of time, so you don’t feel rushed while getting to know our team members. Please read the following information and complete the online forms prior to that visit. With Mendelovitz DDS, you can trust that you're in the best of hands.

Initial Visit

During your first visit, a thorough examination will be completed. This exam will include an oral cancer screening, diagnostic radiographs, intra-oral photos, and cavity detection. This information will allow us to make an accurate diagnosis of your oral conditions. After the exam, we will discuss any recommendations and answer any questions you may have. The key to our successful relationship is an open line of communication.

Our dental hygienists will perform a full general cleaning or begin any recommended therapy for treating gum and periodontal disease. They will also provide oral hygiene instructions, along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth.

Making sound decisions about your dental care and oral health is an easy thing to do with the right preparation beforehand:

  • Make a list of questions to ask our office, so you don’t forget anything on the day of your appointment. This includes any concerns you have or oral problems you’ve been experiencing.
  • If you have dental insurance, remember to bring your insurance card with you.
  • If any treatment is recommended, we will discuss options and benefits with you before proceeding. We will work within an established budget, so you obtain the care you desire in an affordable fashion.

Together we can achieve a common goal: giving you a beautiful smile, and keeping your teeth, gums, and jaw joints healthy.


New Patient Forms

To prepare for your upcoming appointment, Mendelovitz dental practice provides our patient forms online. Completing these forms before your visit will help ensure your timely check-in for your appointment. Please complete your new patient paperwork prior to your appointment. If you are unable to complete the forms online, we ask that you arrive for your appointment 15 minutes early, so you may complete them in the office.



Dental insurance is intended to cover some, but not all of the costs of your dental care. Many plans cover preventative care and apply a deductible and co-insurance for routine dental work, payable at the time of service.

Our practice accepts most insurance programs as a service to our patients. Our goal is to maximize the dental insurance coverage patients receive and to help them to choose an option that is right for their needs.

We are preferred providers for:

  • Atena
  • Delta Dental
  • Cigna
  • Guardian
  • United Concordia

If you have any questions about your insurance coverage, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you.

We request that you give us a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment in order to avoid a cancellation fee.


Have concerns about the cost of obtaining the brilliant, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted? Do you want to know about options to pay for your dentistry procedures?

Many patients assume that because we offer a high-end, top-quality experience, our treatment options are out of reach for them financially. Fortunately, we’re able to make things happen for patients that they never believed were possible. There are many ways to make your dental treatment plan work in your lifestyle. We partner with well-known companies who offer great financing options so you can achieve the smile of your dreams. Our Treatment Coordinators are dedicated to reviewing these options with you.

If you have always dreamed of that beautiful smile, Los Angeles’s Top Dentist is dedicated to helping you achieve it. We understand that not everyone can afford to pay the full amount for high-end cosmetic dentistry in advance. Knowing your dentistry financing options can help make your decision much easier about visiting Mendelovitz DDS. We offer many financing solutions to fit any budget and meet your needs. We accept two popular financing plans that offer low monthly payment plans:


CareCredit PaymentCareCredit® is a healthcare credit card designed for your health, beauty, and wellness needs. It allows you to pay for the costs of many treatments and procedures and provides you with convenient monthly payments.

There are no annual fees, setup costs, or prepayment penalties, and payments can be spread over a time frame, anywhere between 3 to 60 months.
