Financing Options

We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care and our fees are a reflection of that quality care.  We offer a variety of financial options to enable you to receive the dental care you need.  We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

We will communicate all recommended treatment options and associated fees prior to the start of treatment.  Payment is expected at the time of treatment.  We do offer several payment plan options to assist in managing the finances of your dental treatment.  Please inquire if you are interested in one of these options.

We are committed to respecting your time and ask that you make every effort to keep the appointment time reserved exclusively for you.  Should you find it necessary to reschedule an appointment, please provide us with a 24 hour notice to avoid being charged the missed appointment fee of $45.00.

As a courtesy to our patients utilizing dental insurance, we will submit claims on your behalf.  We require that any applicable deductibles and estimated patient portion be paid at the time treatment is rendered.  We are a participating provider with Anthem, Delta and MetLife, but will submit to all insurance companies

Important Facts About Your Dental Insurance

  • Dental insurance is a contract between the patient and the insurance company.  It is a benefit to assist you with the cost of dental care.  At no time should insurance benefits compromise your doctor’s diagnosis or affect your choice of treatment. 
  • It is your responsibility to understand the details of your insurance plan and the specific benefits selected by you and/or your employer (e.g. % coverage, deductibles, frequency limitations and annual maximum).
  • You (not the insurance company) are responsible for the fees of services rendered.
