Financial and Insurance information
We strive to reduce dental billing expenses in order to lower your cost of dental care. Please help us by paying for your dental treatment at the time of your visit. If an extensive dental treatment plan is required, we’ll give you a written estimate for proposed services. For your convenience, several payment options are available including cash, check, and all major credit cards.
As a courtesy to our patients, our office will complete and file dental insurance forms. Note that unlike some medical policies, dental insurance rarely covers 100 percent of treatment costs. We’re happy to predetermine your allowable benefits prior to treatment, so you understand your obligation in advance. Your portion of estimated costs is due at time of treatment. Special payment arrangements are available on a case-by-case basis and when allowed by your insurance plan. We’ll do everything possible to ensure your access to quality dental care.
