Our Financial Policy
Our goal is to make it financially possible for you to have the smile and good dental health you want and deserve.
We are happy to accept assignment of benefits on any indemnity insurance plan you may have. As a service to you we will submit all claims to your insurance carrier. We do ask, whether you have insurance or not, that you pay your share of costs at the time services are rendered.
If, for any reason, this is a problem, you may work out a financial arrangement that is comfortable for you with our Financial Coordinator in advance of your treatment.
For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
