At Buckeye Endodontics we make every effort to provide you with the finest care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this we work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance payments for covered procedures. If you can not supply us with your insurance information prior to your appointment, we will not be able to send in your claims or check your insurance. If this occurs you will have to pay in full for your visit. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. We are well informed and up-to-date. We can be reached by phone at Columbus Office Phone Number 614-488-3333.
We also offer CareCredit.
We currently are not providers for Ohio Medicaid but we do refer patients with those insurances to OSU, only if they can not locate an in-network provider. If you have anxiety about dental treatment we do offer Nitrous gas, which is a $80 cost and is not sent into your insurance company. For more extreme levels of anxiety was can do a consultation prior to treatment and call in a prescription of Halcion. These 2 little pills will be taken at least 2 hours prior to dental treatment. Any patients that take Halcion prior to treatment, must have a driver to and from their Endodontic appointment. If this does not seem to be a path the patient is interested in taking, IV sedation can always be arranged by a third party. We ask if you or your dental office calls to set up an appointment, that you have handy any information that may be helpful. This information may include; tooth #’s, previous dental work completed on the teeth in question, all insurance information, and dates available for you to come in for treatment. Please know we do not require an evaluation at a separate appointment unless; the patient is under 17 years of age, the patient is in need of anti-anxiety medications, or if the tooth has had a previous root canal treatment done with in the last 3 years. We can just do an evaluation for any patient if that is what the doctor or the patient wishes.
We process all insurance claims for our patients. We also take the time to submit secondary insurance for you, if you have dual insurance.
