 Insured Patients:

As a courtesy to you, we will process your insurance claims for you. Please realize the following:

  1. Your insurance is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. We are not a party to that contract.
  2. Not all services are covered benefits in each contract. Some insurance companies arbitrarily select certain services that they will not cover. A few insurance carriers’ reimbursement policies are based on an arbitrary “schedule” of fees for specified services (how often a service will be covered or how many are covered in the year(s) / lifetime). These restrictions bear no relationship to the current standard of cost for care in this area, and are absolute in their structure.
  3. Some insurance companies do not pay for resin fillings (tooth colored fillings) however, an alternate benefit is allowed, therefore you will be responsible for the difference in fees.
  4.  If your insurance company does not pay within 45 days, you will be responsible for the full balance. We will provide you with the necessary paper work for reimbursement.
  5. Co-payments and deductibles are due at the time services are rendered.
  6. All charges are your responsibility.

Uninsured Patients:

  • Payment for services is due at the time the services are rendered. We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards.
