Payment for all services is expected at the time services are provided. If treatment requires multiple appointments, payment in full is appreciated at the first appointment but may be divided according to the number of appointment. We accept cash, money orders, and personal checks, as well as credit card payments made with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. We also offer financing through Care Credit and are happy to assist with your application. Please note there will be a $25 fee for returned checks. In addition, returned check charges not paid by the Friday following the check’s return will be turned over to the district attorney. We ask that all patients give at least two business days notice when rescheduling an appointment to allow other patients to utilize that time. A charge will be made for appointments broken within 24 hours.
Regarding Dental Insurance
Please note that the information provided to us by your insurance company is not a guarantee of payment, and the patient is ultimately responsible for his or her treatment costs, regardless of what insurance pays. We will do our best to obtain accurate benefit information from your insurance company, so that we may estimate what your portion will be at each visit. For patients with dental insurance through companies for which we are not providers, please understand that – our treatment fees may differ from the fees your insurance company allows, which means there may be a balance due even when insurance claims to pay 100%, as payment will be based on their fee schedule, not ours. The portion collected at the time of treatment is only an estimate, and the responsible part will be invoice for any balance that remains after insurance pays. If you have questions regarding insurance, please feel free to inquire at the front desk.
