We Will Bill Your Insurance Company
For You, So You Don't Have To!
Dental insurance is a "cost sharing" benefit; i.e. , this means it is meant to cover only a portion of your care. Employers and other plan sponsors offer dental benefits for a variety of reasons, including promotion of oral health and attraction and retention of high-quality employees. Regardless of why the plan is offered, its intent is the same: to help individuals by paying for a portion (not the full amount) of the cost of their dental care. Almost all dental benefit plans are the result of a contract between the plan sponsor (often an employer) and the third party (usually an insurance company). For this reason, concerns about your dental plan should first be directed to your plan sponsor. Limitations in coverage are the result of the financial commitment the plan sponsor has agreed to make and the benefits the third-party payer will offer in exchange for that commitment.
Treatment decisions must be made by you and your dentist. While dental benefit coverage should be considered, what your insurance benefit covers may not be the best treatment for you and it should not be the deciding factor in your choice of treatment. We will be happy to file your insurance claims electronically for you on the day of service. Your insurance company will send payment directly to you. We require payment at the time of service, in order to keep our fees affordable.
We accept checks, cash or credit cards. We require payment at the time of service We also offer CareCredit. Please see our Financial Coordinator for details.
