In additon to making your dental experience comfortable, we work very hard to make financing comfortable! We have several ways to finance your dentistry. Give us a call; we'll help you find the plan that is best for you!
For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards including Mastercard, Visa, American Express and the Discover Card. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. As a courtesy, our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company not between the insurance company and the dentist. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. We can only approximate your portion/co-payment due to the large number of insurance companies and to their periodic changes within their contracts without notifying each dental office of these changes. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
