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.

We understand that special circumstances sometimes exist. We will do our best to see that arrangements are made so that you can receive the treatment that you want and need. If you need to discuss other payment options for major dental treatment then simply ask.    

In-Office Dental Membership Plan

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

The In-Office Dental Membership Plan is for our current patients who do not have dental insurance.  New patients will have the opportunity to sign up following the completion of their new patient appointment.

Our Dental Membership Plan is one way to make dental care affordable.  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.  


Billing and Insurance 

At our dental office, affordability for our patients is important.

Since we are a fee-for-service dental provider, payment is expected when services are rendered. We also accept all PPO insurance plans as an out of network provider - PPO plans allow patients to select a dentist of their choice.   Patients pay for their treatment at the time of service; as a courtesy we electronically file your claim and the insurance reimbursement check is sent directly to the patient.      

Most insurance companies respond to dental claims within 7-10 business days.   If there are any issues regarding your claim, no worries, our dental team will advocate for all our dental insurance patients to the best of our abilities to maximize their insurance reimbursement for covered procedures.     

No insurance? No problem!
