Our goal is to give you the best possible, long-term dental care. While we try to minimize the fee for your treatment, we will not do so by lowering the quality of your care. We know that paying for treatment twice is expensive. We believe our patients should be in control of the treatment they need, not the insurance companies. The insurance companies are in the business of making money with your premiums, not providing you with the care you need. The original concept of dental insurance was to supplement your fee, not determine what care you need. We work with all insurance companies to reduce our patients’ out of pocket expense. For our patients who have insurance, we typically ask for a percentage of their fee on the day of service. However, this varies, depending upon which insurance policy your employer has contracted. When we receive any insurance payment, we will promptly issue a check for your credit balance should the insurance company reimburse more than the balance due. Should there be a balance, we will send you a statement for that amount.
Many of our patients find it convenient to use a credit card for payment of their fee. For those, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Several of our referring doctors accept CareCredit, and we do also. These options provide a financial payment alternative for those who would like to schedule their payments over several months instead of paying on the date of their treatment. We also offer these in order for you to simplify your bills by making one payment for multiple dental services. If you have any questions regarding your financial commitment, our patient coordinator will be available. Payment for services is expected on the day the treatment is performed.
