If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available to you. In order to assist you, it’s necessary that you submit your dental and/or medical insurance information to us with your New Patient Paperwork a minimum of two business days prior to your scheduled appointment.
This allows us time to contact your insurance company and obtain a breakdown of the benefits your employer or you have purchased from the company. In addition, you will want to bring a dental benefit book that your carrier should be able to provide. Our business team will be happy to help you understand your policy.
Should you be diagnosed for treatment services, we will be able to provide you with a detailed plan that will give you an estimate of how much your insurance company may pay for each procedure, as well as the portion you will be expected to pay at the time of service.
Professional care is provided to you, our patient family, and not to an insurance company. The insurance company is responsible only to the patient as a benefit from the employer or individual plan purchase, and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will assist you in every way we can in the filing of your dental or medical claim and handling of insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
Thank you for choosing our office for your dental care. Dental treatment is an excellent investment in your medical and psychological well-being. Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining this essential, life-enhancing care. We are always available to answer your questions and/or assist you in any way.
Fees less than $300 are due and payable at the time treatment is rendered. We accept cash, personal checks, or credit cards (MC, Visa, American Express, and Discover).
For our patients who have dental insurance: We are happy to assist you in filing the necessary forms to help you receive the full benefits of your coverage. The insurance relationship constitutes an agreement between the carrier and the patient, as such, we can make no guarantee of estimated coverage or payment.
However, please be assured that we will do everything possible to see that you receive the full benefits of your current policy. We will file your insurance and ask that you pay the portion that is estimated at the time of service.
If the insurance payment is less than what was estimated, a statement will be sent that will be due upon receipt. If the insurance payment exceeds the amount estimated, you will have a credit on the account and we can send you a refund or use it toward future dental treatment.
Monthly payment plans can be set up through CareCredit or Wells Fargo Health Advantage®. This is a healthcare credit card used to pay for health expenses. There are special payment options that allow for three, six, or 12 months no-interest financing.
In an effort to reduce the cost to you, the patient, while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established the financial policy as follows:
