Dental Insurance Policy
Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. We accept many dental PPO insurance plans even if we are not in-network with the provider. We do not participate with any DMO, HMO, Medi–Cal or Denti-Cal dental policies. Please remember that while we do our best to verify your benefits prior to treatment, all estimated insurance benefits are just that…estimates. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith.
We cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Also, note that insurance companies merge or change often. We encourage all of our patients to know their policies and to call your insurance company customer care representatives for information to avoid confusion.
Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 30 days to render payment.
Please remember After 60 days, you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage. Our patient coordinators are happy to explain financial and insurance matters with you.
No Insurance? No Problem.
If you have recently lost your dental coverage, or have never had dental coverage, then you can take advantage of our special offer for all our new patients.
We also offer our Dental Savings Plan for patients with no dental insurance but wish to establish a long term relationship with us.
We offer special no-interest payment plans for qualified patients.
Office Appointment Policy
Our scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. Please understand that missed appointment times are valuable to those patients that may find it hard to come to the dentist at other times. Please help us serve you better by keeping your scheduled appointments. We request you notifying us 24 hours in advance of your appointment if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment. After missing your first appointment without notifying us 24 hours in advance, you are subject to being charged an additional fee.
