Financial Policy

We are committed to providing excellence in endodontic care for our patients. Included is a commitment to open and clear financial policies.

Treatment Plan Estimate

Once we have assessed your dental condition, we will present you with a treatment plan. Please note that the dental benefits are subject to various limits as determined by your benefit provider.

Co-payments

Payment is due at the time of service. If you have dental insurance, your estimated co-payment is due at the time of services. We accept payment in the form of cash, check, bank debit cards, Visa and Mastercard.

Dental Insurance

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. As health care providers, we are not a party to that agreement. If your insurance does not cover all or part of the treatment provided, you will be responsible for payment of fees which are not reimbursed by insurance regardless of the estimate initially provided to you. However, we are committed to helping our patients maximize their benefits and we will work with you to achieve the maximum benefits for your coverage. If you have dental insurance, we will complete and submit a claim form as a courtesy to you. If you are covered by a plan that gives you a discounted fee schedule, the discounted fee will be charged to your account and recognized by the insurance carrier upon receipt of claim. If your insurance has a preferred provider list and we are not on that list, you may be responsible for additional costs. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask our staff.

Payment Plans

As a courtesy to our patients we offer payment plan through CareCredit. You may apply online, by telephone, or by facsimile.  

Late Fees and Returned Checks

Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.

We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.
