We work with many dental benefit plans. Traditional plans do not require that you select your provider from a directory. You have a PPO (preferred provider organization) plan if you can go to any dentist but were given a directory of participating providers from which to choose. If you must select a dentist at the time of plan enrollment then you probably have a health maintenance organization (HMO) plan. Unfortunately, this type of insurance will not reimburse you or our office for any services.
Read an interesting article about how little dental benefit plans have changed since 1985.
As an additional courtesy to our patients, we are able to file your insurance claims and accept an assignment of your benefit. We ask that you pay the estimated amount not covered by your insurance at the time your appointment. We also ask you to remember that insurance is an agreement between you and your insurance company, and that you are ultimately responsible for paying in full for all services you receive.
Our office accepts payment by check, cash or credit card (Visa & Mastercard). An alternative method of payment is financing through CareCredit, an independent financial institution. CareCredit allows qualified applicants to pay off their balance interest-free within the first ninety days. If you are interested in a dental line of credit, please ask us for an application. You can also apply online here.
