We Accept Dental Insurance
We are pleased to be able to accept assignments of benefits from your dental insurance company. As a courtesy, we will file your insurance and help you maximize your benefits. Every insurance plan provides different levels of benefits based on the coverage your employer has provided.
We will complete a complementary benefits check that estimates your insurance coverage and your portion for treatment, which is due on the date of service.
Our financial and treatment coordinators will be happy to discuss any concerns you may have regarding our fees and our financial arrangements.
Dental Savings Plan
As an affordable alternative to traditional dental insurance, our dental savings plan makes it easy for individuals and families to receive the same great, high-quality care without the financial burden. By paying one low fee each year, you gain access to free preventive services as well as a 15% discount on all other procedures. And the best part is that you can begin using your benefits right away. With no waiting periods or other red tape commonly found with dental insurance, you can take better care of your smile.
Flexible Financing Available
While quality dental care is an excellent investment in the overall dental, mental, and psychological well-being of children and adults, we also realize that families and individuals have different financial needs and are in different financial situations. We are proud to offer in-office arrangements that are almost always flexible enough to allow our patients/parents to be able to afford the finest dental care. We also accept Cherry Financing and CareCredit, which is a credit card designed specifically for healthcare needs. They offer no-interest and low-interest payment plan options.
If you want the process of paying your bill to be easy, you’ll be pleased to learn that we make it possible for you to pay online!
