Insurance/ Financial Information



We want to provide our patients with quality dental care with reasonable fees. We understand that you must plan for dental care just as you would any other service. We encourage you to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have regarding the fees for treatment. We will discuss fees for an initial visit by phone as the appointment is made. Once examination, x-rays, and diagnoses are completed, a treatment plan will be presented as well as the estimate of the total fee. We accept cash, personal checks, debit cards, visa/mastercard, and Medicaid. Please understand that payment of professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided.

Financial Information

We want to provide our patients with quality dental care with reasonable fees. We understand that you
must plan for dental care just as you would any other service. We encourage you to ask questions and
discuss any concerns you may have regarding the fees for treatment. We will discuss fees for an initial
visit by phone as the appointment is made. Once examination, x-rays, and diagnoses are completed,
a treatment plan will be presented as well as the estimate of the total fee. We accept cash, personal
checks, debit cards, visa/mastercard, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Medicaid. We also
offer a “CareCredit” option. Please understand that payment of professional services is due at the time
dental treatment is provided.

For Those Who Have Dental Insurance

Traditional Insurances reimburse patients or our office based on our UCR (usual, customary, and
reasonable fee). We are always happy to file your insurance claims for you. Please understand that
your insurance policy is a contract between you and your company itself, and we are not responsible for
how your insurance company manages its claims or for what benefits they pay on claims.

We are now in-network providers for some major insurance carriers as well. Usually this will be a PPO
(preferred provider organization) where we agree to a fee schedule set by your insurance company.
We regularly see 50% coverage for major treatment (crowns, extractions), 80% for basic care (fillings,
crowns), and up to 100% for preventive services (exams, x-rays, cleanings).

We will assist you in estimating your portion of the fees for treatment. Remember, your insurance
carrier may pay less than the actual fee for services, and it is your responsibility to pay any deductible,
co-insurance, or balance not paid by your insurance. We will offer options as needed for managing any
outstanding balances. We also cannot be responsible for any errors in filing your insurance – we file
claims as a courtesy to you.
