For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and Visa/Mastercard credit and debit cards. We also participate with Care Credit financing. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our financial coordinator.
As a service to our patients, our practice submits claims to most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our business 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. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly contact your insurance company prior to your initial examination so that once a treatment plan is formulated, 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.
