We are committed to providing you with the best possible care. Payment for services is due at the time services are rendered unless payment arrangements have been approved in advance by the doctor or office staff.
For single-visit procedures, our policy is that payment is due in full at the time of service. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit card payment (MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).

Dental Insurance Information
If you have dental insurance, we are anxious to help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. Although we do not participate in any plans directly, we do accept assignment of benefits for most insurance companies. We will be happy to electronically submit your insurance claims for reimbursement. We request that the co-payment portion (or an estimated portion of 30%) be paid at the time of services. After the insurance company has paid their portion we will bill you for the balance or credit your account the difference. Please provide us with an insurance form with your section completely filled out. We will gladly discuss your proposed treatment and answer any questions relating to your insurance.
Although we will gladly file a claim on your behalf, you may wish to submit the claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by the service providers (dental offices).
Further, most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) that may need to be done.
Private & Group Insurance
As a courtesy to our patients with medical and/or dental benefit plans, we will submit necessary claim forms, receipts, and other information to your insurance company.
Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you. If you have deposited an amount in excess of your co-payment, it will be refunded to you.
