Financial & Insurance

Financial Policy

We have made and will continue to make every effort to keep down the cost of your dental care. Charges are payable at the time of treatment.

Our treatment coordinator will work with you to arrange a treatment plan that fits your budget. We will discuss every procedure and fee prior to treatment, and will also help you arrange payments.

Insurance

As a convenience to our patients with dental insurance, our office will submit the charges to your insurance carrier at no extra cost. We do ask that you provide us with dental claim forms.

Please understand that your insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company. No insurance company covers all dental costs. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures, and others pay a percentage of the charge.

It generally takes three to six weeks for benefits to be paid. If after 60 days the insurance company has not paid, we ask the patient to pay the balance of their account. We will continue to seek settlement from your insurance company for a reasonable period of time. It may be necessary for the patient to contact their insurance company to expedite payment.
