Payment is due at the time of treatment.
- We accept:
- Cash. We offer a 5% discount for cash on each day of service.
- MasterCard, Discover or Visa, credit or debit.
- Care Credit. This allows you to start treatment today and spread payments over time. You can apply by phone, online or at our office.
- Dental Insurance. We accept the "assignment” of dental insurance. This means we will file your insurance claim. This commonly takes 4 to 6 weeks for us to receive payment from them. You are responsible for the amount your insurance does not pay.
How to Determine your Insurance Benefits
We can contact your insurance company. Usually, they will send us a FAX describing your benefits. We will calculate your benefit and determine the portion that is your responsibility. This might include your yearly deductible, co-pay and uncovered services. You are responsible for your share on the day of treatment. We will bill your insurance for the balance. Remember this is only an estimate. After we receive payment from your insurance, there might be an unpaid difference. This unpaid difference is your responsibility.
For major procedures, it is advisable to send a written predetermination to your insurance company. This can take 2 to 6 weeks for them to process and return to us. We will contact you to schedule an appointment. At that time, you can make financial arrangements for the balance of uncovered services.
