Financial Policy

Patient Billing

We are in-network with almost all insurance companies.  We emphasize that we are in-network and not just participating. A confusing statement in the dental field has been used: ” Participating with your dental insurance.” When in-network with an insurance company, you have contracted fees used to determine costs at your dental office. Participating is NOT the same as being in-network, although in-network providers do participate If we are not in-network, you will be advised. If you choose to see an out-of-network provider, a larger copayment will be collected at the time of service since there is no contract with that insurance company for an out-of-network provider. 

Co-payments are the amount an insured person is expected to pay during treatment.  For your convenience, we make each patient aware before their scheduled treatment appointment if any co-payments are due. We accept all major credit cards, CareCredit, and exact Cash. WE NO LONGER ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS.  Therefore, payment is due when service is rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. We participate in a program called CareCredit; you can apply before your appointment at CareCredit.com and bring with you to your appointment your 16-digit account number.

Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office, regardless of your insurance coverage. if a balance is due after the insurance pays, you will be asked to pay that balance within 30 days.

The crown or restorative work at your general dentist needs to be done within 4 weeks and is a separate cost from the endodontic treatment at our office.   To find out the restorative costs, contact your general dentist.

Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated. You can make a payment on your account by calling our office or mailing in a payment.
