Dental Financing

We realize everyone is in a different financial situation.  We will work with you to find a way to cover the dental care that you and your family deserve.

We accept all dental insurance plans that allow you to choose your own dentist, even if we are not a contracted provider for that insurance.  Most of our patients who have insurance see us as out of network.  With many dental plans being in or out of network makes little difference in copay, but for some plans it can be a significant difference.  If you choose to see us we would be happy to a pre determination to your insurance to find out what your estimated portion would be before your appointment. 

 We will be happy to verify your insurance eligibility and benefits before your appointment.   Please remember insurance estimates given to us by your insurance company are estimates only and not a guarantee of payment by your insurance company.  If you need more information on your policy please contact your insurance company prior to your appointment.

We will file your insurance claim for you electronically.  Insurance companies vary widely by company and individual policies, and only after your claim is submitted and reviewed by your insurance company will they determine their final payment amount.  We will provide an estimate of payment before treatment, but if you desire more detailed information a pre-treatment estimate can be submitted to your insurance company before treatment is scheduled.  This will provide a written estimate of your individual benefits versus the generic coverage information they provide over the phone or internet.

Dental benefits used to be primarily determined using usual and customary charges, but many insurance companies are switching to a maximum allowable coverage amount, which does vary widely depending on plan.  Again, this can be researched before beginning any treatment.

If you need financing or flexible dental payments we offer Care Credit.  You must qualify through Care Credit for this service.  We can help you apply.  We also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards.
