Financial Information

We are committed to providing you with the highest quality dental care.  If you have dental insurance, we will be happy to assist you with any questions relating to your insurance and bill on your behalf.  However, we need your assistance and your understanding of our payment policy.


  • Please understand that an insurance contract is between the patient and the insurance company. While filing of insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to our patients, acceptance of insurance assignments does not absolve the patient of FULL responsibility for charges on treatment rendered.  If we fail to receive a response from your insurance company within 60 days, or if your claim is denied payment, you will be responsible for full payment of the balance in your account.
  • Please understand that not all services are a covered benefit in all contracts. This will vary depending on individual deductibles, exclusions, limitations and maximum coverage. Therefore, if your insurance estimates less than 100% reimbursement on services to be rendered, you may be required to pay an ESTIMATED CO-PAYMENT at the time of your appointment. Please note that any estimate provided by the insurance company is an “estimate” and may not always be accurate.

We will submit your insurance claims on your behalf and notify you of any reimbursement.  Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. We will send you a monthly statement. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect payments made by your insurance company during that time period. Please remember that you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid its portion is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.
