Learn more about your first visit
A simple consult is the best way to meet and learn about eachother
We always schedule extra time at our initial visits so that we can sit down together and discuss the challenges you’re facing. We always take a digital scan of your mouth and any required x-rays so that we can plan together and come up with a treatment that fits your needs. For those patients who have have more complex challenges, Dr. Mursic will often schedule a second consult where you and him can sit down with different options mapped out. We understand that investing in your health is a big decision and want to make sure we take the time to help you feel comfortable and confident with your decisions.

FAQ’s About Our Dental Office
Please look at the list of most frequently asked questions we get here at Durham Prosthodontics. If you do not see your question please feel free to give us a call.
Do you bill insurance directly?
Like most dental specialty offices, we do not typically collect from insurance provider. However, we do our best to help patients submit their claims and get the compensation they deserve. We also will send all estimates to insurance companies and try to get a breakdown of each patient’s insurance benefits.
Why do you do digitial scans?
Seeing is believing and being able to show you your mouth quickly with a 3D digital scan and x rays lets us see the problems in your mouth together without any confusion. We spend a lot of time talking to make sure you understand why you need treatment and what those options are.
What is the second appointment for?
Many of the people we work with require significant treatment that can seem complicated. To help with this we commonly plan the case before with physical models and a diagnostic waxup done by our partner lab, 5 Axis Dental. We also review various treatment options and costs in a stress free environement to make sure you understand your options and the investment in your health. We encourage patients to bring their partner’s or family with them to help make these appointemtns easier and less stressful.
