Payment and Insurance Options
In an effort to keep dental costs down while maintaining a high level of professional care, we accept the following payment types:
- Cash or Check
- Credit Card – We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover and American Express
- CareCredit® – see below
- Dental Insurance – see below
Through special arrangements with CareCredit ®, a medical finance corporation, treatment can be financed over several months interest free with approved credit.To request an application, you can either Contact Us prior to your visit or you may pick up an application when you come in for your visit. Also, please be aware that financing arrangements must be approved prior to receiving dental services.
For those patients with dental insurance we will gladly assist you in receiving the maximum benefits provided by your dental carrier. However, you will ultimately be responsible for all fees for services provided.
We do accept the assignment of benefits from most insurance companies, with the exception of Delta. We also require 50% of the total fee at the time of service, unless the treatment is $200 or less, in which case, we require 100% of the fee.
Please be aware that most dental insurance policies provide the same coverage for root canal procedures whether they are performed by an endodontist or a general dentist. This is sometimes referred to as “usual, customary, and reasonable, or UCR.”
Our fees are not determined in cooperation with insurance companies and therefore we have no control over what your policy will pay. Our fees, and the insurance plan’s benefits, may or may not always match, therefore, you will be expected to pay the difference.
Upon treatment completion and payment in full, any subsequent insurance overpayment will be promptly returned to you.
If you have any questions regarding our financial policy, please feel free to ask our Patient/Financial Coordinator.
