FEES and INSURANCE (back
For those patients who are rendered professional services, but who have no dental
insurance benefits, we prefer payment at the time that such services are provided. For
those patients with dental insurance benefits, payment of your deductible and/or
co-payment is expected at the time that such services are provided. This will help reduce
administrative costs and will permit us to effectively control rising dental care costs.
Patients who are more mature (seniors over 60 without dental benefits) citizens will be
extended a savings of 10 percent for payment by cash or check or 6 percent if by credit
card provided payment is made on the date the services are rendered.
To aid our staff in assisting you with insurance benefits that you may have, please bring
your insurance card with you at the time of your first visit. If insurance coverage is not
verifiable, we must assume that such coverage does not exist and consider you a patient
with no dental insurance benefits.
Please bear in mind that our professional services are provided to you, not to the
insurance company. Therefore, the insurance company is responsible to you and you are
responsible to us. As a courtesy to you, we will complete and file insurance forms
associated with your dental treatment and submit them for processing by your insurance
PAYMENT (back to top)
We will accept cash or check (preferred), and as an additional courtesy and convenience,
we offer our patients the option of making payment for services rendered via Master Card,
Visa, Discover or American Express.
IN CONCLUSION ... (back to top)
It is our most sincere hope and expectation that you and the members of your family are
both pleased and totally satisfied with the services that are rendered on your behalf.
Should a concern or question ever arise relating either to treatment proposed or rendered,
please discuss your concern with our Office Manager or myself.
