The tabs on the left will outline the specific fees associated with the dental and nutritional services Dr. Niederman provides.  Some general points:

  • Farm Call:
    • Niederman does not have a clinic so she travels to your home or stable. Therefore, there is a farm or trip charge fee for every appointment.
    • The amount will vary depending on your location.
    • The farm call will be divided amongst the owners seen at one location.
    • Niederman does her best to coordinate appointments by area to reduce this cost.
  • Electronic records:
    • At the time of the appointment an itemized bill is created and sent electronically to you for your records.
  • Payments:
    • Payments are due at the time the service is provided unless you have made prior arrangements to pay online.
    • All forms of payment are accepted.

Dr. Niederman uses Square Up for credit card transactions.

Here are a few photos showing the placement and benefit of using a full mouth speculum .

   

All of the 24 cheek teeth and soft tissues (cheek, tongue) within the mouth can be visually examined.
