As a courtesy to our patients, we will complete and file insurance
forms relative to dental services. However, unlike medical insurance,
dental insurance does not usually cover 100% of the charges incurred.
We will be happy to determine the benefits allowable under your policy,
and whenever your insurance requires a predetermination of benefits before work is
started, we will submit to the insurance company a treatment sequence with
charges so that you will be completely aware of your coverage. Please note that
we will assist you in completing your portion of the insurance form and sign it
Every effort is being made to keep down the cost of dental care. You can help us by
paying for treatment at the time of your visit. If your treatment requires several
visits, you will receive an estimate of the proposed services so that some form of
financial arrangements can be made.
To assist you in this, several options are available for your convenience.
During the course of treatment you will receive
statements on a monthly basis regardless of your insurance
coverage. Except for emergency care, any extensive treatment will
be delayed until benefits are established. Patients will be expected to
begin payment on their projected balance at the time treatment begins.
- Payment at the time service is rendered by cash,
check, money order VISA or MasterCard.
- Outside financing.
- Professional budget plan after an initial payment;
the balance is divided into monthly installments.
We hope this clarifies our office policy regarding dental insurance.
