Giving you a choice that is right for you.
Patients with Dental Insurance
Your first appointment with us is payable by you. In the future, after pretreatment authorization (PTA), all deductibles and co-payments must be paid at time of service. Note: If we are unable to confirm patient eligibility and complete insurance information, the full amount is payable by you.
All prosthetic restorations (known as major services and often include crowns, bridges, dentures and partial dentures) are recommended to be pre-authorized by your insurance carrier. Once preauthorization is completed and we have received an explanation of benefits (EOB), final payment may come from your carrier.
Not all insurance carriers will assign benefits to providers. Should your carrier not assign benefits to us, then final payment must come from you. We will do our best to obtain a profile of your dental insurance benefits and communicate with you how best to utilize your plan to obtain maximum benefits. We are here to help you receive the best quality of care.
Additional Payment Options
Payment for treatment is due at time of service. We accept cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard.
For prosthetic services, 1/2 is required at start of treatment, and the balance over the remaining appointments. Full payment is expected prior to completion of the case. Extensive cases may require special arrangements. A payment schedule will be established for you at the treatment conference.
Finance charges will accrue at 1.5% per month, $2.50 minimum, on balances over 30 days old.
Now there’s a smart, affordable way to pay for dental procedures with low monthly payment and NO INTEREST. Just use the Citi Health Card at our office to take advantage of no interest payment plans*. The Citi Health Card makes treatments affordable right now, and the benefits really add up.
Dental Credit Card
We offer you the opportunity to pay your dental bills with CareCredit, a healthcare financing plan that assists our patients in paying for their treatment over time, without any up-front payment required. It's ideal for co-payments, deductibles, and treatment not covered by insurance. With CareCredit, you can take care of the bill without another thought and focus on what's most important - scheduling your appointment right away.
Using CareCredit for your healthcare expenses leaves your major credit cards available for other important purchases and unexpected expenses. CareCredit has interest free plans available with flexible payment terms. And if you're looking for a way to stretch your payments out over a longer time period, they have low interest plans that give you a longer time to pay.
Emergency Care for New Patients
All emergency care patients are expected to pay 100% for their treatment at the end of their appointment. If you have dental insurance, we will submit this to your insurance company and we will have the payment sent to you.
