+ Insurance & Billing

Convienient Financing Options

Dental treatment is an excellent investment in your medical and psychological well-being. Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining important health services. Being sensitive to the fact that our patients have different financial needs while reaching their dental health, we provide the following payment options:

  • You receive a 5% courtesy adjustment for payment in full if you do not have dental insurance.
  • Seniors (60+) who do not have insurance will recceive a 10% adjustment.
  • We accept your Visa/Mastercard and American Express/Discover cards.
  • We offer you a selection of Flexible Monthly Payment Solutions with Interest Free Options (See Care Credit below)
  • We welcome your dental insurance. Dental insurance is a private arrangement between you and the insurance company. We are happy to help you maximize your benefits and as a courtesy to our patients, we will submit your dental insurance claims on your behalf. You will be expected to pay an estimated portion at the time of treatment. We ask that you keep us updated with your current insurance information so we may accurately bill your insurance in a timely manner.
  • We partner with you to find a good fit for your budget while achieving your dental health.

Care Credit

We are pleased to offer our patients Care Credit, North America’s leader in patient payment plans. Care Credit Dental Payment lets you begin your treatment immediately and pay over time with payments that fit in your budget.

Care Credit functions like a credit card, but is exclusive for your dental care services. Because there are no up-front costs and no pre-payment penalties, you can pay over time. This frees up your cash and credit cards for the other things you want and need. Care Credit offers low monthly plans for healthcare procedures not commonly covered by insurance, including dental treatment. Plus, you can use your card to pay for other members of your family that also have dental needs.

Benefits of Financing Your Dentistry Needs:

  • Low minimum monthly payments that fit your budget
  • No-interest financing if paid within 12 months (Additional plans may be available)
  • No up-front costs or pre-payment penalties

+ Do you have Nitrous (laughing gas)?

+ What's your protocol for patients with anxiety and/or special needs?
