We want to help you get your treatment and offer you a wide variety of financing options.

We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered.

We offer financing through Care Credit.

We accept most dental insurance programs and assist you with filling. As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including PPO’s and indemnity (traditional) plans. We are not part of any managed care network (DMO’s & HMO’s). Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

If you have any questions about your insurance benefits or our financing options, please call our office. One of our friendly staff members will be happy to assist you.
