Financial, Insurance & Billing Information
Welcome to our practice! We are happy that you have chosen us for your periodontal needs. Our practice is a fee for service dental practice. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard. If necessary, we are able to provide low or no interest financing through our partnership with CareCredit.
We understand that you may have dental insurance. This is a benefit provided for you by your employer. It is your responsibility to know your insurance plan. Our treatment planning is based on your need as a patient and not according to your insurance coverage. We are happy to assist you in filing claims, but ultimately you are responsible for your treatment and the associated costs involved.
The doctors in our practice are Delta Dental Premier Providers. Please keep in mind there are many different Delta Dental plans and it is your responsibility to know your insurance plan. For Delta Dental patients we will collect a portion of the appointment the day of service and a final settlement will be billed or refunded once explanation of benefits have been received.
Every effort is made by our staff to give estimates for all treatment prior to the occurrence. We would like you to keep in mind that costs could change according to needed procedures that occur during performance of the treatment.
For large surgical, implant, and/or IV sedation cases, 50% of the estimated fee is required at the time of your pre-op appointment. The balance will be due the day of surgery.
Your time is important to us. We carefully schedule needed appointments in order to have an adequate amount of time for you. We kindly require 48 hours notice to cancel or change any appointment. There may be a charge for appointments cancelled or unattended without adequate notice.
To acknowledge that you have read and understood our policy, please print out our Financial Policy Form, sign it and bring it in for your next appointment.
