Payments and Insurance Policies

Fees & Payment Policies

Our main goal is for you to obtain the highest quality of dental care by providing you the service that is based upon a professional, courteous and confidential working relation­ship between you and our office.  In order to prevent misunderstandings, it is our policy to clear all financial procedures at the beginning of your treatment.

Payments must be made when services are rendered.  If your treatment requires several visits, you will be given an estimate of time and cost involved.  Partial payment plans can be arrange on bi-weekly or monthly basis, pending on the treatments.  However, fi­nal payment is expected in full upon comple­tion of a procedure.  We accept major credit cards, checks and cash.

Payment Plans/Insurance

As a courtesy and convenience to you, we will accept direct payment from the Insurance Company.  Therefore, the fol­lowing guidelines are necessary to prevent confusion.  Since policies and plans seem to vary between companies, certain Insurance policy standards are made as follows:

1. Dental insurance policies generally have an annual deductible and you are responsible for paying this amount directly to the office at the beginning of treatment.

2. The vast majority of dental insurance policies require a copayment on the part of the patient.  This copayment is generally 20% to 50% of the fee for a given service and this payment will be required from you the day the service is rendered.

3. Dental insurance generally has an annual maximum of benefits which will be paid to a given patient for the policy year.  Any treatment costs which exceed this maximum annual amount are to be paid by you directly to this office.

We will cooperate in every possible way in order for you to receive the maximum in­surance benefits for which you are entitled.  Despite our efforts, disputes occasionally arise with Dental Insurance Companies.  If there is a dispute with your Insurance Company, we will supply any documentation you may need to help resolve this disagreement.  However, we must remind you that the financial rela­tionship is between you and this office, not between our office and your Insurance Company.  Therefore, you have the final responsibility for payment of your bill.
