Our Financial Policy

Our office is committed to providing you with the best possible care. Please understand that payment of your bill is considered as part of your treatment. The following is a statement of our Financial Policy which we require you to read and sign prior to any treatment. All patients must complete our Information and Insurance form before seeing the doctor. 
Regarding Payment
We accept the following forms of payment: Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover logos  
Payment for services is due at the time the services are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made with the doctor and the billing receptionist.
If treatment requires that items are to be fabricated by a dental laboratory, a 50% deposit will be required at the time of the first impression. The remaining balance is due at the time the prosthesis is cemented or inserted.
Checks that are returned to our office from your financial institution are subject to a $50.00 returned check fee. This fee covers the processing fees that are charged to our office.
Regarding Insurance
Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. We are not party to that contract. In the event we do accept assignment of benefits and your insurance company has not paid your account in full within 60 days, the balance may be transferred to your account. Please be aware that some, and perhaps all, of the services provided may be non-covered services and not considered reasonable and customary under the terms of your insurance policy. Our practice is committed to providing the best treatment for our patients. You are responsible for payment regardless of any insurance companies’ arbitrary determination of usual and customary rates.
Your complete insurance information must be presented at the time services are provided. Insurance claims cannot be backdated. Most benefits will be verified before your insurance company will be billed.
All insurance co-pays and deductibles must be paid at the time of service.
We would be happy to discuss our charge and how they relate to your particular situation. We also realize that temporary financial situations may affect timely payment of your account. If such problems do arise, we encourage you to contact us promptly for assistance in the management of your account.
Thank you for understanding our Financial Policy. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
