We are pleased that many of you have dental benefits. Our office will assist you in obtaining the maximum benefits specified in your contract. However, your benefits are a contract between you, your employer, and your insurance carrier. We will assist you in determining your benefits as best we can. Because plans differ from carrier to carrier and policy to policy, we suggest you contact your employer’s benefits coordinator for assistance in understanding your plan.
As a courtesy to you, we will file your benefits claim and accept assignment of benefits. We ask that your estimated co-payments and deductible be paid at the time of service. Balances with benefit claims outstanding more than 90 days may be reverted back to the patient. Not all services are a covered benefit in all contracts. Some carriers and employers select only some services to be covered. You are responsible for payment of all services regardless of the payable benefit.
Methods of Payment
Cash, Check, Debit Card, Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover
Care Credit (3rd party financing) (Care Credit)
We respect your time and ask that you respect ours by honoring your appointment commitment. A broken appointment is a loss to everyone. Remember, once you have made an appointment, this time is reserved for you. Please give us at least 48 hours notice if you are unable to keep your appointment. This will allow us to accommodate the needs of other patients more readily. If we do not receive a cancellation notice within 48 hours, a cancellation fee may be applied to your account.
Dental Benefits are Estimated
Our office is committed to optimal care: which means that we will not do anything for you that is less than what we would want for our families or ourselves. We will always recommend the procedure that is the best clinical option for a given diagnosis.
Many carriers now commonly pay an “alternate benefit” or “least costly equivalent benefit” when multiple methods of treatment are available. We do not believe our patients want us to compromise our integrity by offering a lower quality of dental care, and we believe our patients value their natural teeth enough to pay a portion of the cost to keep them healthy.
We will collect from you at the time of service the amount we believe to be correct based on the information we have been provided by you or your carrier. If after final adjudication of the claim an “alternate benefit” or “least costly equivalent benefit” is paid then the difference in the cost will be the patient’s responsibility.
We are proud to offer our patients the best dental care available and the best options for restoring teeth to their optimal function.
