Payment Options

For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards and offer 2-3 month in-office payment plans.   If extended payments are needed we participate with CareCredit. Our policy is not to put financial situations in front of dental care.  We try our best to deliver the finest dental care at the most reasonable cost to our patients.


For patients without insurance the full payment is due at the time services are rendered.    


Dental Membership Plan


We understand that dental care needs to be affordable, especially for families. We make every effort to lighten your financial burden.


Our Dental Membership Plan is one way to make dental care affordable for the whole family.  And with our Dental Membership Plan there’s only a simple annual enrollment fee.  


NO annual maximum
NO deductible
NO wondering whether insurance will pay towards your treatment
NO waiting period-this means you can start treatment today!
NO preauthorization is required!


Call our office for more information.  




 

Insurance and Billing

At our dental office, affordability for our patients is important. We work with all PPO insurance plans which allows patients to select a dentist of their choice to provide dental treatment.  Since we are considered an out-of-network dental provider, patients will have a co-payment.  As a courtesy, we will file your insurance claim for you. 


New Patients with Insurance


*All new patients with insurance are asked to pay in full for their first appointment; after the insurance has been processed and paid, a refund, if any, will be issued.  Patients can also choose to leave the credit in their account for future appointments. 

 

Active Patients with Insurance


Most insurance companies respond to dental claims within four to six weeks. After that time, we will send you a statement.  Please call our office if your statement does not reflect payments made by your insurance company during that time period. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid its portion is your responsibility.  


We advocate for you to the best of our abilities to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures.  


Please remember that you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.
