Our office does not have a contract with any insurance company. This ensures that we are able to focus on what is best for you, not what is best for the insurance company. We file claims and accept delayed payment from the insurance company as a courtesy to our patients. We are able to file on your behalf as long as your contract with the insurance company allows you to choose your own doctor. Please become familiar with your coverage and understand that only the insurance company knows for sure what will be paid.
Because insurance can get very confusing, we encourage you to ask us any questions you may have. Remember, we are in your corner when it comes to maximizing your benefits and minimizing your out-of-pocket expense.
Payment of Fees
- We will provide a list of all treatments and fees prior to performing any work. If the procedure must be changed, you will be notified immediately.
- Payment is due on the day of service. All charges are the responsibility of the patient, regardless of insurance coverage or lack thereof.
- If you are covered by dental insurance, we will file a claim for you. We will attempt to estimate insurance payments as near actual coverage as possible. If insurance refuses to pay all or part of a claim, the remaining balance is the sole responsibility of the patient.
- If you are covered by two insurance plans, we ask you pay your portion of the primary claim. When your primary carrier pays, we will provide you a claim to send to the secondary carrier with payment assigned directly to you.
- Any insurance claims unpaid after 60 days must be paid by the patient. We will provide all documentation necessary to aid you in procuring payment from the insurance company.
- We offer several payment options:
- Cash/Check – A 5% discount will be given if treatment is pre-paid 24 hours in advance.
- Credit Cards – We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. A 5% discount will be given if treatment is pre-paid 24 hours in advance.
- CareCredit – Interest-free monthly payments up to one year.
- CareCredit Extended Plan – Low interest, terms up to five years.
