Finance and Insurance options for parents!
Finance and Insurance options for parents.
No Dental Insurance or coverage that doesn’t meet your needs?
Payment OptionsFor your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders, Care Credit and most major credit cards. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. Feel free to contact our office if your treatment plan requires more comprehensive dental work and you want to discuss financial arrangements.
InsuranceOur office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
