Insurance and Payment Options
We strive to help our patients receive maximum reimbursement from their dental insurance coverage and submit detailed insurance claims with all necessary documentation as quickly as possible. We also realize that dental insurance is designed to partially cover routine dental care and that dental insurance often falls short of covering high-quality rehabilitative comprehensive care such as periodontal surgery, laser, implants and crowns. We are sensitive to the financial commitment required to restore our patients’ mouths to maximum health and function and work closely with our patients to help them with affordable financial arrangements.
Our doctor(s) and staff are proud to be a team whose primary mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive periodontal services available today. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure you that it is performed in the most responsible manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your dental health, we have outlined our payment policy.
For single-visit procedures, our policy is that payment is due in full at the time of service. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit card payment (MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).
Multiple Visit Payment Options
Option 1: Full Payment at Time of Service – 5 percent fee reduction for payment before treatment is rendered.
Selection of this option gives you the maximum savings on the cost of your treatment plan because the billing expenses we save are passed on to you in the form of a 5 percent discount. Your Treatment Coordinator will provide you with specific details.
Option 2: Open Account Payment Plans – Treatment fees divided into two or three equal payments.
For individuals desiring a more flexible payment plan, the open account plan may be the best choice. This plan allows for three equal payments to be paid out over a period of three months. The first payment of one-third is due at the time of treatment, the second payment is due one month after treatment, and the third and final payment is due two months after treatment.
Option 3: Outside Financing – For those who would prefer an extended payment plan.
For your convenience, payments may be made with cash, personal check, and bank draft, Discover, Visa, or MasterCard. To further assist our patients with outside financing, we also participate in certain Care Credit and Lending Club dental financing plans. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff.
