Insurance Benefits and Financial Policy
We are pleased to welcome you as a new patient. Our primary mission is to deliver the best and most comprehensive dental care available. An important part of this mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable as possible. Please read our financial policy carefully and ask any questions or bring up any concerns you may have before treatment is rendered.
As a courtesy, our office will contact your insurance company for you, but your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. You are still fully responsible for the charges for treatment rendered. Your insurance may not cover all the services or may only partially cover them depending on your contract. Also most of all insurance plans have an annual maximum, which limits the amount payable during a fiscal year. Any estimate given by the office is considered a guideline.
We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards. For patients needing more extensive dental work, we also offer third party financing through Care Credit. Third party financing must be approved before services are rendered. We offer interest free payments for up to 12 months upon approval. In certain cases, we can provide a monthly payment option as well. If you have insurance, we will collect any deductible and co-payment at the time of your appointment. A 1.5% finance charge will be applied to balance after 30 days.
When we schedule your appointment, the time is reserved exclusively for you. Failure to notify us of your inability to keep an appointment, prevents another patient in need of dentistry is unable to receive treatment. We request that you give us at least 24 hours notice when you realize that you cannot keep your appointment. When the request notice is not given, a fee of $48 per half hour scheduled will be charged.
Thank you for understanding our financial policy. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Again, we are pleased to welcome you as a member of our dental family.
