Payment is expected at the time services are performed. For your convenience, we offer a 5% cash courtesy (10% for seniors 65 years and older) with cash, personal checks, or money orders. We also accept all major credit cards, however, we are unable to give the 5% (10% for seniors) courtesy. We also accept Care Credit which offers 6-12 months interest free financing options with qualifying services. Care Credit also offers extended payment options beyond 12 months.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs. Our accounting 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 submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that 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.
