Financial Policy

 

Good dental care is one of the best investments you will ever make.

 

Time, skill, care, judgment, professional education and experience determine professional fees. We are proud of our fees and know they represent fair compensation for the quality of services provided to our patients. However, when it comes to costs of any sort, none of us likes surprises. We feel that it is important for our patients to understand our financial policies before initiating any treatment. Our policy is to tell you, in advance of any treatment, what your investment in your dental health will be and to make definite financial arrangements before we begin treatment.

 

After your initial comprehensive examination, diagnosis and consultation, we will review with you our recommended treatment plan and its estimated cost. You will receive a written estimate of the services and their respective fees. We also will offer alternative treatments and their costs. We have a full range of budget plans available to accommodate our patient’s care and needs.

 

We expect our patients to take full responsibility for the payment of our fees. We accept several payment methods: Cash, Personal Check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and third party financing. Many of our patients like to use their air miles credit cards to earn free airline tickets or whatever bonus/perks they have with their credit card.

 

Insurance

 

We are finding there are more and more different types of dental plans, some within the same company. Your contract for insurance coverage is between you and your carrier. Because of the complexity of the plans and the way they reimburse, we recommend that all patients become familiar with the type of coverage they have.

 

We will gladly process your dental insurance as a courtesy to you and we will have the insurance company reimburse you the policyholder. This means we
can concentrate on taking care of your treatment to the best of our ability and not allow the insurance company to dictate a poorer quality of healthcare. All dental insurances have exclusions, for example, an insurance company may make a benefit for a silver filling when a superior tooth colored filling is placed. Coverage’s are arbitrarily downgraded by insurance companies so that they can pay less benefits on your behalf.
