Financial Policy

Thank you for choosing us as your dental care provider. We are committed to your treatment being successful. Please understand that payment of your bill is considered part of your treatment. The following is a statement of our Financial Policy, which we require you read, and sign prior to any treatment. All patients must complete our Information and Insurance form before seeing the doctor.

FULL PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF SERVICE.

WE ACCEPT CASH, CHECKS, VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER, CARE CREDIT FINANCIAL PAYMENT PLAN, CITI HEALTH PLAN

Regarding Insurance: We do not accept assignment of insurance benefits at your first visit. Please provide us with your insurance information card. The balance of your account is your responsibility whether your insurance company pays or not. We cannot bill your insurance company unless you give us your insurance information and an original claim form to be kept on file with your signature.

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. We are not a party to that contract. In the event we do accept assignment of benefits we require that you be pre-approved on our extended payment plan or provide a credit card with authorization to bill that account for the balance. If your insurance company has not paid your account in full within 45 days, the balance will be automatically transferred to your credit card or the extended payment plan. Please be aware that some, and perhaps all, of the services provided may be non-covered services and not considered reasonable and necessary under the Dental insurance contract.

Usual and Customary Rates: Our practice is committed to providing the best treatment for our patients and we charge what is usual and customary for our area. You are responsible for payment regardless of any insurance company’s arbitrary determination of usual and customary rates.

Adult Patients: Adult patients are responsible for full payment at time of service.

Minor Patients: The adult accompanying a minor and the parents (or guardians of the minor) are responsible for full payment. For unaccompanied minors, non emergency treatment will be denied unless charges have been pre-authorized to an approved credit plan, Visa/MasterCard, or payment by cash or check at time of service has been verified.

Missed Appointments: Unless canceled at least 48 hours in advance, our policy is to charge for missed appointments at the rate of a normal office visit or $50.00. Please help us serve you better by keeping scheduled appointments.

Sedation and extended visits: Unless you notify us during office hours at least 72 hours in advance, missed appointments are charged $100 per half hour of scheduled time (example: 3 hours would be $600). Prepayment: 14 days before appointment is required to hold appointment.

Finance Charges and Outside Collections: A finance charge of 1.5% will be charged to all accounts past 30 days. If the account is not paid in full within 90 days of services rendered, your account may be sent to collections and you will be responsible for any collection fees and/or court costs. Full refunds for Third Party financing are subject to a 10% fee.
