Your First Visit:
You can expect to receive a thorough examination and careful
evaluation of your oral health, including necessary x-rays, and a
discussion of the most satisfactory treatment plan to meet your oral
health needs. Please read and completely fill out the new patient forms
and bring them to your first visit. We also need you to bring your
dental insurance card. Remember that you are responsible for full
payment at the first visit.
*Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to appointment time.
Payments and Insurance:
Patients with Dental Benefits: As a courtesy to our patients who have
dental benefits, we are happy to file your claims electronically from
our office. Under most circumstances, we do require at least a partial
payment towards services at the time the services are rendered. For
“restorative” treatments (Ex: fillings), we require at least 30% of the
treatment total. For “major” treatments (Ex: crowns, bridges,
extractions, root canal treatment), we require at least 50% of the
treatment total. For any preventative and/or diagnostic services (Ex:
prophylaxis, diagnostic films, exams), we do not require any payment at
the time services are rendered. Please understand that it is your
responsibility to know your specific plan/policy’s coverage. Your dental
benefits may cover less or more than what we estimate or collect from
you initially. Therefore, after we receive payment from your dental
benefits provider, there may be a balance leftover which we will send
you a statement for requiring you to pay within 30 days; or, there may
be a credit leftover. If the credit is $10 or more, you should receive a
reimbursement from us within 10 business days. If the credit is less
than $10, we will apply it to your next visit unless you contact us
requesting a reimbursement check.
Patients without Dental Benefits:
Patients without dental benefits are required to pay in full at the time
services are rendered.
Care Credit Payment Options:
We understand that regardless of whether or not a patient has any
dental benefits, care, maintenance and treatment are necessary to
maintaining good overall health; but medical expenses can be unexpected
and costly. That is why we are happy to be able to offer all of our
patients the advantage of the Care Credit patient payment plans. With
their high acceptance rate, these plans offer no interest (up to 12
months) and low interest (up to 60 months) payment plan options to
