Financial Policies

We are committed to providing you with the most comprehensive dental care using the highest quality materials and technology available in the profession today. We are also committed to providing you with the up-to-date information and educational tools so that you may fully participate in maintaining optimum oral health. Our financial agreement is intended to facilitate our ability to provide excellent service to you.

All the charges you incur are your responsibility regardless of your insurance coverage. We must emphasize that as your dental care provider, our relationship is with you, our patient, not with your insurance company. Your insurance policy is an agreement between you, your employer and the insurance company. Our practice is not a party to that agreement.

In consideration for the professional services rendered by this practice, payment is due in full at time of treatment. All emergency dental services, or any dental services performed without previous financial arrangements, must be paid at the time services are performed.

As a courtesy to our patients, this office will help prepare dental insurance forms and assist in making collections from a primary insurance company. Your estimated copayment for treatment, which is the amount not covered by insurance, is due at the time treatment is provided. If payment is not received from your insurance company in 60 days from date of service, you will be expected to pay the balance in full.

Our practice accepts cash, personal checks, American Express, Master Card, Visa and Discover. Returned checks and any balance older than 60m days will be subject to finance charges at the rate of 1.5% per month. (18% annualy) on the unpaid balance and may result in collections.

Please let us know if you have questions about our financial policies or financing options prior to your treatment.
