Insurance and Financing Options
Our goal is to help remove financial barriers so our patients can receive the dental treatment they need and desire. Prior to scheduling any treatment, we are happy to provide patients with an estimate of costs. Many patients have some type of dental insurance. At your first visit, we will ask for current insurance information. We may ask you to confirm this information at subsequent visits, so we can remain up-to-date and fully informed to serve you. Insured patients will receive cost estimates broken down by insured and uninsured costs. We ask that you pay uninsured costs the day services are rendered.
In-House Dental Savings Plan
In an effort to help our patients without dental insurance, we have designed an affordable alternative to maintain your preventive dental care. This plan is not dental insurance, and it is exclusive to our office. Our In-House Dental Savings Plan allows you to visit our office regularly for your preventive care. Preventive care (cleanings) is the cornerstone of long-term, optimal oral health. In addition, restorative work, if needed, is also provided at a significantly discounted rate.
We sincerely hope this plan provides a viable alternative for those seeking quality care.
The cost of our In-House Dental Savings Plan is less than $20/month for an individual and is also available for couples and families. Please feel free to call our office for more information regarding this exciting option.
We accept most dental insurance including PPO's and indemity insurances. We are in network with Guardian, Metlife, United Concordia, and Mavarest.
For patients covered by insurance, we will accept assignment of benefits. This means that you must sign the portion of your insurance that assigns payment to our office. Most dental insurance plans do not cover 100% of the cost of your treatment. It is because of this, and the extreme delay in receiving payment from insurance companies, that you are asked to pay your deductible and your portion of charges at the time services are rendered. All estimates are based on information provided to us by your insurance and are not a guarantee of payment. Only after a claim is submitted and reviewed by your insurance company can final payment be determined. As a courtesy to you, we file claim forms electronically, provide postage for special claims, and track the claims as an obligation to you.
Other Payment Options
Patients are asked to pay for services as they are provided. This minimizes bookkeeping costs and allows us to pass these savings on to our patients. We accept Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Discover Card and Debit Cards. We also offer flexible financing options for those who qualify. We understand that monthly payments can help patients fit the costs of dental treatment into their budgets, and we want you to be able to afford the dental care you need.
