Insurance And Payment

Financial Policy

Thank you for choosing our office for your dental needs. Dental treatment is an excellent investment in an individual’s medical and psychological well-being. Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining this important life enhancing care. We are always available to answer your questions and/or assist you in any way we can. 

At the onset of your treatment we will provide you with an estimate of the total fees expected. Please understand that it will be an estimate only. Treatment sometimes changes for a variety of unforeseen reasons.

Fees less than $300 are due and payable at the time treatment is rendered. We accept cash, personal checks, credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) and Care Credit.

For our patients with dental insurance: We are happy to assist you in filing the necessary forms to help you receive the full benefits of your coverage. When it comes to estimating insurance payments or coverage, we must also stress the word estimate, as insurance companies continue to surprise us at times. Please remember that the contract for your insurance coverage is between you, your employer, and your insurance carrier. If the insurance company pays more than expected, you will receive a refund. If they deny your eligibility after the fact, the balance becomes your responsibility.

Payment Options

Payment as Services are Rendered:

If you wish to pay the estimated amount for treatment at the time services are rendered, we gladly accept cash, personal checks, and most major credit cards. Because we cannot guarantee your exact insurance coverage, there may be a balance remaining after your insurance payment is received. Whenever choosing this option, we ask that you leave a credit card on file for any balance that may be owed.

Monthly Payment Plans Available for Amounts Over $300:

  • “Same as Cash” Six-Months Interest-Free
    • Available through Care Credit
  • Extended Payment Plans – 24 to 60 Month Low Interest
    • For financing $1000 and over
    • Available through Care Credit
  • “Lay-Away” Plan
    • Treatment commences after comfortable monthly payments are made which equal the estimated patient portion.
  • *3 Equal Monthly Payments
    • 25% initial down payment
    • Guaranteed with major credit card AND secondary form of payment

Any insurance estimate given by this office is not a guarantee of actual insurance payment. You are ultimately responsible for all charges incurred for dentistry performed upon yourself or your dependents in this dental office. Any insurance claim not paid in full after 60 days will become your responsibility to pay at that time.

*Restrictions Apply. Reserved for “friends of our practice”. Ask us how we become friends!

Any balance left unpaid for 45 days, without signed, written financial arrangements, will be assessed a $35 collection fee and will be turned over to TekCollect for collection. An NSF check or failed charge with your credit card on file will incur a $35 missed payment fee and any additional cost necessary to collect the payment (including but not limited to a $35 collection fee).
