Interest-Free Financing

Being sensitive to the fact that different people have different needs in fulfilling their financial obligations, we are pleased to be able to offer several payment options, including monthly payment plans. Depending upon your circumstances, these plans offer 0% financing for up to 12 months. The choice is yours. Our Office Administrator will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.

Insurance Accepted

Dental insurance is great! We will gladly help fill out all those complicated forms for you and even accept the assignment of insurance benefits so that your “out of pocket” can be minimized. We will even allow our office insurance expert to evaluate your particular insurance plan and work to get you the maximum reimbursement all just for you!

Please bring all your Insurance information or insurance booklet with you to help us out. We cannot bill your insurance unless you bring all insurance information. Should you have any change in your insurance information please inform the practice before your appointment or any services rendered.

You should remember that your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company and we are not a party to that contract. What that means is our doctors work for and get paid by you. i.e., you are ultimately responsible for the payment of all fees for our service.

Concerning Insurance Co-Payments

You will need to pay any deductible and fee co-payments the day of your appointment with cash, check, or Credit Card. If your insurance company has denied or not paid your account in full in 75 days, the balance of your account will then become your responsibility to pay within 15 days.

Please be aware some and perhaps all of the services provided may be “non-covered” service and not considered so-called reasonable and necessary under your insurance program. Regardless of the insurance company’s determination of usual and customary rates or amount of assignment, you are required to pay the full amount charged by our office. There is no write off of fees.
