Financial

We offer several budget-friendly options to help with treatment costs.

Our doctors and staff believe that financial obstacles should never stand in the way of receiving the dental treatment that you want or need to maintain optimal oral health and a healthy smile. Once your examination and consultation with one of our dentists has been completed, our financial coordinator will discuss with you an estimate of the cost of treatment and payment options we offer. We ask that payment for the new patient exam be made at the initial appointment. We strive to be flexible, so that we can find an option to suit your financial needs.

We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs. Our office accepts payments by cash, checks, and Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards.

If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior to receiving service.

Insurance Policies

We understand how dealing with insurance companies can sometimes be tedious and difficult. That is why, as a courtesy, we submit insurance claims on behalf of our patients. To help us in filing your claim, please bring your insurance card with you to your appointment and complete the insurance section on our patient forms. This will help us obtain reimbursement from the insurance company in a timely manner.

While it is your responsibility to know and understand the benefits and limitation of your insurance plan, we are committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. With the exception of DMO’s, we do accept assignment of benefits from most dental insurance companies. Please note that we do not participate with Medicare or Medicaid.

While dental insurance does help cover a large portion of the treatment cost, it may not cover all of the expenses. We offer several flexible payment options for any treatment costs not covered by dental insurance.
