Office Financial Policy
We understand that finances are a concern and make every effort to see that patients are able to have the periodontal treatment they need. Several convenient payment options are available.
Are oral appliances covered by insurance?
Oral appliances are not covered by dental insurance. However, some medical policies will cover them if they are prescribed by a physician on your plan.
Patients Without Insurance
We accept cash, check, MasterCard, Visa and Discover Card for your payments at the time of your appointment. “Care Credit” is also available for interest-free financing that allows payments over six months. Please ask our Front Desk staff about “Care Credit” payment options.
Patients With Insurance
Our office is pleased to submit any insurance claims when provided with the appropriate insurance information. While the patient is ultimately responsible for services rendered in the office, for those insurance companies that send their payments directly to the patient, you have the option of signing that payment over to us along with your co-payment, or keeping the payment and paying the total fee at the time of service. Some insurance companies send their reimbursement directly to our office. In those cases, patients only need to pay their co-payment at the time of service. “Care Credit” is also available for interest-free financing that allows payments over six months. Please ask our Front Desk staff about “Care Credit” payment options.
Appointment times are specifically reserved for you. Should you need to change your appointment, we require 24 hours notice to avoid a broken appointment fee of $50. A surgical appointment requires 48 hours notice to reschedule to avoid a broken appointment fee.
